WHAT IS #SCULLYCOFFEE4NF?
In the summer of 2016, I noticed that coffee shop baristas yelling out names reminded me of Mulder yelling out “Scullaaay!” on my favorite show, The X-Files. So I gave my name as Scully for a laugh, shared the picture with some other fans, and encouraged them to try it, too. I even promised to donate a dollar to the Neurofibromatosis Network for everyone who did it. I didn’t raise a whole lot of money, but the idea to have a #ScullyCoffee4NF day on Scully's birthday was born.
Gillian Anderson rose to fame on The X-Files playing Special Agent Dana Scully. She continues to delight her fans with memorable roles in The Fall, Sex Education and The Crown just to name a few. Ms. Anderson has also been a longtime supporter of the NF Network. As fans of Gillian, we thought this would be a fun way to support the work of the NF Network & celebrate her iconic character’s birthday.
Since 2017, #ScullyCoffee4NF has donated over $18,000 to the NF Network thanks to loyal X-Files fans. We extend deep gratitude to everyone who has donated in the past and thank Gillian Anderson for inspiring generosity in your fans. HAPPY 60th BIRTHDAY SCULLAAAAY!
We’ll draw the winners at random sometime after February 23 and announce them on social media. One prize per person, international donors are welcome. Odds of winning depend on how many donations are received. Winners must contact firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize. The NF Network will keep your full name and contact information private. Contribute here!
Thank you again, X-Philes and Gillian fans!
