Fandom4Good follows and promotes causes usually spearheaded by public figures. If it’s not a T-shirt campaign to raise money for a particular charity or good cause, it’s a Skype chat, or a signed script, up for grabs. The well-known person invokes a passion in the fandom that encourages us to by the item or give a donation. This particular donation drive is also about passion.
For fans of Star Trek, I can’t imagine anything more important than keeping the franchise that is Star Trek, alive. With several attempts to go beyond Next Generation and Enterprise, nothing has really graced our small screens. That is, until a couple of web series came together. I remember being so excited when I found them on YouTube. This web series recreates the one and only, original, Star Trek. More realistic, but still so simple. Fresh, but yet, so familiar. The actors and the crew who bring this together, work very hard on authenticity. Thing is, though, authenticity is not cheap. The show relies almost completely on donations and especially, Kick Start Donations.
So here is the challenge Star Trek Fandom. Can you outdo Supernatural or Arrow fans? How about, even, Miley Cyrus fans? As a fandom, can you help Star Trek: New voyages/Phase II to complete it’s current episode?
Check out the vid below and click the Kick Start link to help out and be apart of this. In my book, definately a ‘good cause’. The team at New Voyages, have real passion and so do Trekies!
