When Fanboy Comics is not providing you with the latest in geek news and entertainment, the FBC staff hopes to offer our readers a myriad of opportunities to give back to the community. We love reading comics, watching movies, and playing video games, but we are never happier than when we are able to help others in need. With Geeks Care: How You Can Help, FBC will provide you a variety of causes that would greatly appreciate your time.


In this special second installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help this week, the Fanboy Comics staff would like to highlight the generous efforts of Jason Inman (co-host of DC All Access and US military veteran) as he endeavors to send 10,000 comic books to troops overseas by January 1, 2016, in collaboration with Comics for Soldiers.  Dubbed as the Jawiin Comic Drive, Inman is hoping to share the gift of geekiness with troops overseas to give them a fun reminder of home.  Both new and used comic books are being accepted, and directions for how to donate the books are listed below.  Fanboy Comics is excited to join this holiday endeavor, as we will be donating 300 comic books and graphic novels to the drive!  We hope that you will join us in giving back during the holidays!

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.

As another week comes to a close, it's time for another edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, the weekly series that provides geeky readers with a myriad of ways to get more involved in and give back to their community.  In this week's installment, we return to the fine folks at Blastoff Comics, a top-of-the-line comic book shop in North Hollywood, CA. Blastoff stocks both current comics and graphic novels, as well as an astonishing collection of vintage comics for sale, providing customers with rarities that they just cannot find anywhere else. What truly makes Blastoff and its owners, Jud Meyers and Scott Tipton, stand out is their commitment to helping others in need. A portion of all of their proceeds are donated to charity, with the recipients changing on a monthly basis. This month, Meyers and Tipton have chosen to highlight the National Breast Cancer Foundation, and we want to join Blastoff Comics in educating our readers about this important organization.

Happy Friday, everyone!  In this week's installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, Fanboy Comics would like to highlight an incredible project with a wonderfully positive message that was initiated by photographer Renee Bergeron of Little Earthling Photography.  In 2012, Bergeron created The Superhero Project, where she would work with special-needs children who dressed up to show off their inner superhero in order to help them feel confident and strong while raising awareness about children with disabilities or other challenges.  In the following interview, I chat with Bergeron regarding her photography work, the inspiration for The Superhero Project, how more families and photographers can get involved, and more!

For fans of the VH1 show, Hit the Floor, many were excited to see the recently released teaser trailer for Season 3, which will launch in 2016.  Many fans may not know, though, that Hit the Floor's Devil Girl Dancer, Courtney Galiano, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.  Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. It affects people in the prime of their lives, between the ages of 20 and 50, and there is currently no cure.  Instead of letting it get her down, Courtney is fighting back with the help of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Team Hit the Floor.  By forming Team Hit the Floor, Courtney, her friends, and her supporters hope to mobilize people and resources to raise money to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS, and they hope that you'll join them to become a part of the solution!

For the month of May each year, organizations across the globe venture to raise awareness for mental health and well-being issues.  Given that one in four adults (approximately 61.5 million Americans) and 46.3 percent of 13-18 year olds experiences mental illness in a given year, an earnest effort is needed to provide these individuals with high-quality, lasting mental health care and also to end the inequalities that face people experiencing mental health problems. For that reason, this week's installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help focuses on the incredible efforts of Project UROK, a non-profit organization whose mission is to create funny, meaningful videos for teenagers struggling with mental health issues, made by people who have been there before.  Project UROK recently partnered with actor/writer/producer Wil Wheaton and The A.V. Club to share Wheaton's own experience with generalized anxiety disorder and chronic depression, and they offer a number of opportunities and programs for you to get involved.

This week saw celebrated the 40th anniversary of Steven Spielberg's classic thriller, Jaws, and fans nationwide were treated to select screenings of the 1975 summer blockbuster in movie theatres across the US, courtesy of Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies, and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.  For that reason, this week's installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help focuses on Shark Savers, an organization that recently merged with the non-profit WildAid to save sharks and mantas through building awareness, education, and action. While Jaws made the Great White Shark a household name, many remain unaware of the human dangers that threaten to further diminish their rapidly dwindling population.  With your help, Shark Savers' mission can reach greater audience and serve to greater impact the health and future of sharks!
