Causes Fangirls Can Get Behind

JohnamarieThis 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:

I have lost a friend to AIDS and my mother is a breast cancer survivor, so these causes are personal. You can support Heddle’s fundraiser here.
