This past weekend I visited New York City to record for Squee!! The Fangirl Documentary Project. We had a blast talking about the origin of the #fangirlflair on Fangirls Going Rogue and the many ways female fans create such a great community. Everyday Fangirl interviewed Hansi Oppenheimer from the documentary if you want to know more. Right now the documentary is raising funds to get the editing done. Movies like these raise awareness and so I was happy to support it. Check out the Squee! Go Fund Me page. Even a small donation can make a difference.
Jen Heddle at Lucasfilm is competing in their company Trivia Night, and is trying to raise funds for two good causes. I’ll let her explain:
Hey guys, I am participating in Lucasfilm's annual Trivia Night, where we raise money for low-income AIDS and breast cancer patients.— Jennifer Heddle (@jenheddle) March 26, 2015
My team is called "A Little Short for Stormtroopers," hee hee. Anyway, each team has to raise $500, so I'm reaching out to you good folks!— Jennifer Heddle (@jenheddle) March 26, 2015
The money goes to the AIDS Emergency Fund and Breast Cancer Emergency Fund of San Francisco. They have a long association w/ Lucasfilm.— Jennifer Heddle (@jenheddle) March 26, 2015
If you'd like to donate, you can do so here: http://t.co/hTws4jI75b They are wonderful organizations that could use your support. Thanks!— Jennifer Heddle (@jenheddle) March 26, 2015
Oh! Also, for the first time ever, this year Lucasfilm is playing Trivia Night against Pixar. So help us beat them in fundraising! ;)— Jennifer Heddle (@jenheddle) March 26, 2015
