Die-Hard Star Trek Fans… Your fandom needs you!

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!

Miley Cyrus And Her Backyard Sessions

One could be forgiven for thinking the worst when you talk about Miley Cyrus and what is going on in her backyard. When her 2013 smash hit Wrecking Ball had her swinging around mostly naked and twerking in people’s faces, you could certainly believe what was happening  back there was untoward and newsworthy. In fact, it is newsworthy, but not in the way you might think. HAPPY HIPPIE

Miley Cyrus, daughter of country star legend Billy Ray, has a great talent and a big heart. She is using her backyard sessions to raise money for The Happy Hippie Foundation.

“These last 2 weeks have been magical! But this is just the beginning not the end! I can’t believe this was just a dream and now it’s a reality!!!!”

As the founder, she didn’t think it would ever come to fruition, but it has and she is working hard  to help fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBT youth and other vulnerable populations.

Teaming up with other superstars, past and present, her Backyard Sessions involve singing duets, solo performances and having a bit of fun with her band. After watching her on a wrecking ball, who knew how cute she’d look in a Unicorn Onesie.

Check out the video below and if you can, make a donation HERE to this inspirational cause. Way To Go Miley!
