The “Goodbye OTA Project” Is Raising Money For An Arrow Crew Member’s Family The “Goodbye OTA Project” Is Raising Money For An Arrow Crew Member’s Family
The "Goodbye Arrow Project" is now raising money to benefit a family member of one of the Arrow crew who is battling cancer. The “Goodbye OTA Project” Is Raising Money For An Arrow Crew Member’s Family

As we understand it, the “Goodbye OTA Project” campaign was originally created to raise money for a billboard in Times Square to thank Stephen Amell, Emily Bett Rickards, and David Ramsey — the “OTA” of Arrow — for their time on the show. Eventually, Stephen Amell offered to match the donations up to $10K, with the extra amount going to a worthy cause, and now… that “cause” is here.

Stephen’s team has let the Goodbye OTA Project team know that a family member of the Arrow crew has cancer, and thus, donations will be split between Cure Childhood Cancer and the crew member.

It is at this point where the Arrow fan family can come together for something great. The crew and cast of Arrow have given us a lot over the last 7 years, and will surely be giving us even more in the next year. So, if you can help, visit their donations page. At this point it doesn’t matter which characters you support on the show, because what matters is that this family member and children battling this horrible disease can be helped. Donate!

UPDATE: Clearly when writing this article we had no idea of all of the things the “Goodbye OTA Project” has raised money for. You can see the whole list of things here.

    Not affiliated either, but I’m pretty sure the project is one big pot of funds that’s being split between the funding of the billboard and multiple charities donations beyond the 10k Stephen matched. I know it raised 5k toward the Kleine-Levin Syndrome Foundation and I believe a donation to BuildOn was also agreed to by donors? I’m sure they could give you a detailed account of everything if approached, but it’s been a pretty impressive showing by fandom. It was always intended to be more than just the billboard, but a lot more charities than anticipated are getting the benefit of the exceeded expectations.

      Thank you for more details, Joan! I really didn’t know; I was mostly concerned with getting facts wrong. That is really impressive! Do you know if there’s a listing of what’s going where? I didn’t see much more on their site.

        Sometimes things get lost in the TL, but they just did a detailed update today in the form of a fandom letter—a Google doc I’m attaching you here:

        I also replied to GATV’s tweet from last night with a quote tweet of one of theirs in which they list all the numbers in a more explicit manner. The fandom letter is attached to their tweet. It’s a lot to keep up with, but once it’s understood how the money pot is being split, it all comes together nicely. Every bit of money coming in at the moment is going towards the Arrow crew member’s fund, which is currently at $7480 per the most recent update.

        Hope that helps!
