Geeks Care: How You Can Help Girls of The Finest

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 honor of the 50th Anniversary of G.I. Joe, Geeks Care: How You Can Help has turned its attention to an organization that not only loves all things Joe but is also doing its part to help our Real American Heroes.  Several members of The Finest: A G.I. Joe Costume Club, the world's premier G.I. Joe/Cobra costuming group in the world (portraying the uniforms of the basic G.I. Joe and Cobra infantry troopers, the more specialized operatives of the Cobra Viper corps, and more), have banded together to create a Joe-themed 2015 calendar, the proceeds of which will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.  The calendar will portray all of your favorite female characters (plus a few twists on classic characters) and has aptly been named the Girls of The Finest 2015 calendar.  While the profits will be donated to charity, the members of The Finest need your help to make this terrific project a reality.

The team behind the Girls of The Finest calendar recently launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the production and printing costs of the project.  They have created exclusive content for this campaign that will only be available to those who donate, including Girls of The Finest trading cards, post cards, patches, and t-shirts! 

Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families.  With the mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors, WWP is the hand extended to encourage warriors as they adjust to their new normal and achieve new triumphs. Offering a variety of programs and services, WWP is equipped to serve warriors with every type of injury – from the physical to the invisible wounds of war.

Readers interested in learning more about Wounded Warrior Project or in making a direct donation may do so by visiting the organization's website. In addition, please be sure to visit the Girls of The Finest Indiegogo page. The campaign will close on Friday, April 11, 2014, so be sure to donate soon!

I hope that you will take a look at both of these worthwhile organizations, and I sincerely hope that you will enjoy the below video by a certain . . . familiar face.
