As a special feature of The Fanbase Weekly podcast, the Fanbase Feature focuses on and celebrates a specific element of geek culture. When Fanbase Press is not providing you with the latest in geek news and entertainment, the Fanbase 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 #GeeksCare: How You Can Help, Fanbase Press will provide you a variety of causes that would greatly appreciate your time.
In this joint Fanbase Feature / Geeks Care installment, Fanbase Press Editor-in-Chief Barbra Dillon chats with actor and NerdHQ co-found Zachary Levi regarding NerdHQ‘s partnership with Operation Smile, the largest volunteer-based medical charity that has been providing free cleft surgeries since 1982. Nerd HQ is a FREE, four-day event held the same weekend as San Diego Comic-Con and offers exclusive gaming and tech activations, nightly events, and intimate celebrity panels benefiting Operation Smile. The event is scheduled to be held July 21-24, 2016, at The New Children’s Museum in downtown San Diego, California. Dillon and Levi discuss the genesis of The Nerd Machine and NerdHQ, how he became aware of Operation Smile, and how fans can get involved and give back to Operation Smile to help children all across the globe.
For more information on Operation Smile and for opportunities to volunteer and donate, please visit the official Operation Smile website at www.operationsmile.org. 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) fanbasepress (dot) com.
