With each new edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, the Fanboy Comics staff hopes to offer various opportunities to give back to your community and get involved.  With the holidays fast approaching and the hustle and bustle of our daily lives getting even more hustle-y and bustle-y, it can be easy to forget that there are individuals who may not have the same good health and good fortune that we often take for granted.  It's at this festive time of year that it becomes even more important for us to take a moment to share our blessings with those less fortunate.  For that reason, this will be the first of TWO Geeks Care articles featured on Fanboy Comics this week, and we'll be highlighting the generous efforts of the fine folks at Blastoff Comics, as well as providing you with an opportunity to send a bit of holiday cheer to a little girl who would truly benefit from knowing that she has many friends - near and far - on her side.

This week's edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help is coming a bit early this week in honor of #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.  There are a myriad of valuable and important causes that would welcome your volunteered time and monetary contributions on #GivingTuesday, but, today, we will be focusing on two wonderful organizations: Project UROK and the Pop Culture Hero Coalition.  Since 2014, Project UROK has been taking action to fight the stigma around mental illness within the youth population while also providing practical assistance to teenagers in need of help.  In a likewise admirable campaign, the Pop Culture Hero Coalition uses the universal appeal of comics, film, and TV to create anti-bullying programs at pop culture events and in schools and communities.  Fanboy Comics wants to support these incredible organizations in pursuing their worthy endeavors, and we hope to show you the myriad of ways that you can help.

In this week's edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, there are so many great opportunities for giving back in the geek community that I will be highlighting TWO great organizations. Earlier this week, Toys for Tots and J.C. Lee (daughter of famed Stan Lee) joined forces to launch the “It’s All About Love” online campaign to raise monetary contributions for Toys for Tots' annual toy drive. In addition, the Southern California-based after-school group, Geek Girls Society, which serves to empower and encourage young women through geeky endeavors, is hoping to expand its borders and launch new chapters in cities across the country (at no charge to girls interested in participating); however, in order to do so, they must first raise the necessary funds to qualify for non-profit status. Fanboy Comics wants to support these incredible organizations in pursuing their worthy endeavors, and we hope to show you the myriad of ways that you can help.

For readers following along with my work through Fanboy Comics and The Katniss Chronicles audio drama, The Hunger Games series and the character of Katniss Everdeen have had a somewhat gigantic impact on my life, personally and professionally.  The themes and character portrayals created and depicted by Suzanne Collins serve to open a larger discussion with audiences about gender stereotypes, political discourse, economic disparity, the impacts of war, and the realities of mental illness - to name only a few.  While I have had the pleasure of discussing these topics at length with my Katniss Chronicles colleagues through the #TKCrevisited audio journal series, the talented folks at Project UROK and The Harry Potter Alliance - joined by Hunger Games actor Jack Quaid - are taking action to fight the stigma around mental illness and economic inequality by using the #MyHungerGames hashtag to tell their stories on social media.
