The Criminal Intent Binder Project Details!

Ever since Aunt Dahlia (from the USA Criminal Intent forum) so cleverly suggested that we send a binder filled with letters to Vincent D’Onofrio to thank him for the incredible magic he created as Robert Goren, the idea just wouldn’t leave us alone. So here we are.

Three binders will be sent to the actors leaving Criminal Intent, one to Vincent D’Onofrio, one to Kathryn Erbe and one to Eric Bogosian. We’d love to see you send us your simple thanks, or your artwork or your comments: how you found the show, what you liked about it and what kept you watching. And anything else you can think of!

Here is the format:

  • 8-1/2 x 11” page, printed or decorated, *one side only*. European sizes pages are fine, but should be trimmed to 11” tall.
  • Do not punch holes – each submission will go into a page protector and placed in the 3-ring binder. The dimensions of the PO Box are 11"long x 5.5" wide so a catalogue envelope can roll in it.
  • Create one page for each actor you wish to send a message to.
  • Please sign your pages with at least your first name! and it would be fun to add your approximate location.
  • If you wish to know if your pages were received, please include a current email address on a separate piece of paper!

Your submissions will be handled with the utmost care by our group. We are fellow fans who know the meaning of your personal tributes and we will honor their significant value. We would never make anything you send public without your permission.

Please send this format to:
Susan Civitelli
P.O. Box 397
West Haven, CT 06516

Email option: If you are just writing a simple text letter (black and white), we are happy to print and include it. Word Docs are preferred (one doc for each actor). Your words will be printed on an off white acid-free writing weight paper and included in the binder. Email: Please put CI Binder Project in the subject - pretty puleez!

Deadline for submissions: currently February 28, 2010 This has been extended to April 15, 2010

Delivery of Binders will be around the time of the final Goren & Eames episodes, which to our knowledge are the first and second episodes of Season 9, currently scheduled to be aired in March 2010.

The Criminal Intent Binder Project

We have set up another survey for you to take!

This is to help us choose the binders which will be sent to the actors filled with letters of appreciation. We'd like your input.

There are 3 multiple choice questions. You may only take the survey once.

Take our Online Survey

We are accepting donations towards offsetting the cost of the binders, shipping and setting up of a PO box, plus possible personalizing of the binders and the page protectors. EVERYONE is welcome to submit a page! You don't have to donate.

The Post Office Box will be set up in the next few days, so stay tuned for that update along with lots of other details!
