The guys

Welcome to Thank You, Lone Gunmen!

A fan project thanking the actors, creators, and everyone else involved with bringing us the characters on The X-Files, and their own TV series. Our goals were to raise funds to place an ad in the May 10, 2002, edition of The Hollywood Reporter, which we accomplished, and to donate all extra contributions to selected charities.

.... We've done it!

Although this ad campaign had a very short time to fundraise before materials had to be sent in, the Gunmen fans were more than willing to come together and contribute for a public Thank You to those who brought the Lone Gunmen into our world. Thanks to the generous donations from people around the globe, we were successfully able to reach our goal of a half-page ad, as well as make donations to our two charities! The ad appeared in the May 10th edition of the Hollywood Reporter, which was a special Farewell to X-Files issue.

Tribute to
The Lone Gunmen

In the last nine years, they have become a part of our hearts, minds, and culture in ways no one could have imagined. They have shown that loyalty, perserverance, courage, and creativity are what really makes heroes; that intelligence, kindness and desire for justice can be more valuable to the world than all the weapons ever built.

We're all hopping on the Internet to nitpick the scientific inaccuracies of Earth 2."
