#GeeksCare: How You Can Help ‘We the Women’ and Planned Parenthood

When Fanbase Press is not providing you with the latest in geek news and entertainment, the Fanbase Press 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, Fanbase Press will provide you a variety of causes that would greatly appreciate your time.

For the latest edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, the Fanbase Press staff not only brings you a new opportunity to get involved and give back to an organization that is helping women all across the country, but we also provide an opportunity to attend a wonderful theatrical performance, fine art exhibit, and film screening.  On March 10th and 11th, 2017, from 7 p.m. to midnight, the collective We the Women will present John Patrick Shanley’s production of Women of Manhattan, followed by an art exhibit and film screening at the Palace Theatre in Los Angeles, CA, the proceeds of which will go to Planned Parenthood.

Frequent collaborators and close friends Samantha Ressler and Nathalie Love co-founded We the Women to create a safe and nurturing community for women in the arts and entertainment to share their voice and nurture their creativity.  Through their upcoming event, Ressler and Love will provide an incredible opportunity for creative women to share their talents with audiences of various mediums, including the stage, film, and visual art. In addition, they will provide a platform through which creators and audiences alike will be able to help the non-profit organization Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood was founded on the revolutionary idea that women should have the information and care they need to live strong, healthy lives and fulfill their dreams — no ceilings, no limits. Today, Planned Parenthood is a trusted health care provider, an informed educator, a passionate advocate, and a global partner helping similar organizations around the world. Planned Parenthood delivers vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of women, men, and young people worldwide.

Tickets for the upcoming event art currently available on the We the Women website, and there is also an option to provide direct donations to Planned Parenthood.  The website also provides additional information regarding the production of Women of Manhattan, as well as the art exhibit and the artists who will be presenting their work.

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.
