This is a very special installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, as it marks our very first interview, showcasing the incredible charitable work that is being accomplished throughout geekdom.  In addition, with Free Comic Book Day just around the corner on Saturday, May 2nd, the following interview will provide our readers in the Southern California area with an extremely fun and exciting opportunity to give back to their community on the annual geeky holiday.  Below, Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon chats with Kelly Spector, Librarian for N.E.W. Academy Canoga Park, a charter school in Southern California that provides fantastic literacy programs for its students while also educating them as to the many ways that they can become involved with their community.  In this interview, Spector discusses the available programs through N.E.W. Academy, her partnership with Blastoff Comics' Jud Meyers and Rocketdyne's Tony Magee, and the impact that her students' work will have on charitable and non-profit organizations this Free Comic Book Day.

In this week's installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, Fanboy Comics would like to highlight the incredible efforts of independent comic book publisher Minky Ink, which publishes books written by children for children, working closely with non-profit organizations, including Children's Institute.  Minky Ink not only publishes the children's books, but the wonderful staff also educates inner-city students how to create the books and hires local artists to illustrate them.  By encouraging literacy and a love of learning in young readers - and also donating the profits of its work to charitable organizations, Minky Ink is setting a fantastic example to which we should all strive.  We at Fanboy Comics want to spread the word about their work to let you know how you can help.

For many of our Fanboy Comics readers, the love of a furry companion can brighten your day, ease your worries, or simply give you that wonderful warm-and-fuzzy feeling when you need it most.  Our pets mean the world to us, and their mere presence can affect our day by leaps and bounds.  For that reason, this week's installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help will focus on CATFE, the cat café phenomenon that is taking the world by storm by combining the rescue of stray cats with a comfy coffee wonderland.  In conjunction with Best Friends Animal Society and NKLA Pet Adoption Center, CATFE will be coming to Los Angeles on April 10, 2015, for a one-day, pop-up celebration that will offer delicious coffee and the chance to take home a new forever feline.

Geeks Care: How You Can Help once again shines a spotlight on 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 Crossover International Academy, and we want to join Blastoff Comics in educating our readers about this important organization.

In this week's installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, Fanboy Comics would like to highlight the incredible efforts of publisher Northwest Press, which recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for the comic book anthology series, Rise: Comics Against Bullying.  Partnering with organizations including Stand for the Silent, GLAAD, and Prism Comics, Northwest Press is endeavoring to create a comic book series that will not only feature some of the comic book industry's leading writers and artists, but the stories contained within will combat bullying through a variety of voices and tones.  Once published and printed, the comics will be distributed for FREE to Stand for the Silent, GLAAD, and Prism Comics (as well as schools and libraries) to spark conversations and provide resources for at-risk youth in an accessible and engaging format.  With the Kickstarter campaign having already launched, Fanboy Comics wants to provide its readers with information on how you can help to bring this amazing project to fruition!
