Geeks Care: How You Can Help the National Space Society with Blastoff Comics

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.


As another week draws to a close, 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 National Space Society, and we want to join Blastoff Comics in educating our readers about this important organization.

The National Space Society (NSS) is an independent, educational, grassroots, non-profit organization dedicated to the creation of a space-faring civilization.  The NSS works to promote social, economic, technological, and political change in order to expand civilization beyond Earth, to settle space, and to use the resulting resources to build a hopeful and prosperous future for humanity. Founded as the National Space Institute (1974) and L5 Society (1975), which merged to form NSS in 1987, NSS is widely acknowledged as the preeminent citizen's voice on space. NSS has over 50 chapters in the United States and around the world. The society also publishes Ad Astra magazine, an award-winning periodical chronicling the most important developments in space.

For those interested in lending financial support to the National Space Society, readers may visit the NSS' giving page on their official website

In addition, please remember that Blastoff Comics will donate a portion of their proceeds to this worthwhile organization this month. If you have the opportunity, I would encourage you to stop by Blastoff, meet the incredibly personable store owners, and assist in helping both the National Space Society and local business owners by picking up a few comics. As the Blastoff website says, "Comics can make saving the world look easy." By shopping at Blastoff, it has never been easier to save the world (and others!), one comic book at a time.

 




If you have a volunteer opportunity or an important cause that could use the assistance of a few geeks, please email the details to barbra (at) fanboycomics.net.
