Happy New Year, Fanboy Comics readers!  As 2015 is already off and running, the FBC staff is eager to bring you its weekly listing of amazing and worthwhile organizations and events that offer opportunities to give back to your community.  In the first Geeks Care: How You Can Help installment of the year, we once again shine 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 Movember Foundation, 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!

As many parents and children heading back to school this week, the importance of childhood education is on the minds of many.  For this reason, this week's installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help will highlight the great work being done by the folks at Raising A Reader, a non-profit organization that engages families through literacy.  With programs available across the United States, Raising A Reader offers tangible opportunities and solutions for families and education agencies to develop, practice, and sustain home literacy routines.  Likewise, the widespread availability of the organization provides you with an even greater opportunity to learn how you can help!

As folks are still unwinding and catching up from the post-SDCC madness, it brings me great joy to highlight the amazing and compassionate work that many geeks are doing in spite of their hectic schedules.  This week, Geeks Care: How You Can Help would like to call attention to Geeks 4 Kourageous Kids (G4KK), a group of cosplayers that partners with non-profit organizations to bring light and laughter to children in need. Recently, G4KK partnered with The Orange County Ronald McDonald House to celebrate the Orange County chapter's 25th anniversary with a pancake breakfast that was stacked high with costumed superheroes!

This week's edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help will focus on the great folks at Whedonopolis and Fandom Charities, non-profit organizations established for the purpose of raising funds and awareness for charitable organizations through fandom events, conventions, and other geek-related activities.  On August 9, 2014, these two great organizations will be hosting An Evening at Caritas: A Night of Karaoke to honor actor Andy Hallett.  Fans in the know will remember Hallett as the actor behind Lorne, the lovable and gentle Deathwok Clan demon on the TV show Angel who ran the karaoke bar Caritas, where all patrons - good and evil - were welcome.  The proceeds from this event will benefit Kids Need To Read, and there will also be a canned food drive to benefit SOVA Community Food and Resource Program.  The Fanboy Comics staff hopes that you will join us in celebrating the memory of Hallett while having a great time and lending your help to two incredible charitable organizations.

The focus of this week's edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help was brought to the attention of the Fanboy Comics staff by Dave Kellett, the extremely talented creator behind the web comics Sheldon and Drive and the recent documentary STRIPPED.  Kellett is one of hundreds of cartoonists across the country to have participated in a collaborative fundraising art book to benefit Team Cul de Sac (TCDS), a fundraising effort led by professional web designer Chris Sparks in honor of his friend, Richard Thompson, the cartoonist behind the Cul de Sac comic strip. Thompson has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, and Team Cul de Sac is endeavoring to raise money and awareness for Parkinson's disease research.  Through both the purchase of the fundraising art book and the upcoming Team Cul de Sac Drink and Draw event taking place in Charlotte, NC, you can help to find a cure for Parkinson's disease.

In this week's edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, there are so many great opportunities for giving back in the comic book community that I will be highlighting TWO great charitable causes.  Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP), DC Entertainment, and Top Cop Publishing are celebrating heroes in a variety of ways this week, honoring those individuals who have had a positive impact on our lives by encouraging others to become heroes in their own right.  These organizations have offered their support to Superman Hall of Heroes and the Wounded Warrior Project, and Fanboy Comics wants to join them in educating its readers about these important organizations and how you can help.

In this week's edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, we would like to turn our attention to Sina Grace, the co-creator (along with Daniel Freedman) and artist of Image Comics' new comic book series, Burn the Orphanage: Reign of Terror. Grace has teamed up with The Lustgarten Foundation to donate all 20 pages of art from the series’ first issue to support pancreatic cancer research. The series of auctions, titled Compassion vs. Cancer, will go entirely to The Lustgarten Foundation’s efforts in raising awareness for the under-funded and highly-deadly cancer.  Fanboy Comics, having lost a dear friend to pancreatic cancer, wants to join Sina Grace in educating its readers about this important organization and how you can help.
