Fandom Rocks Helping people, changing things: the fandom business.
Started in June, 2007, Fandom Rocks is a fan-run initiative to raise funds and awareness for charities around the globe.
The project is inspired by similar campaigns in the Firefly, Buffy, Angel, and Veronica Mars fandoms
The charities are selected by the fans, and every six months two new charities receive the donations collected on Fandom Rocks.
In July 2008 Fandom Rocks started their third campaign, collecting money for WriteGirl and InvisibleChildren (suggested by Sera Gamble) in form of an e-bay auction of fan goodies in August 2008. The campagin had scripts signed by Jensen and Jared, Eric Kripke, Sera Gamble, Ben Edlund and other writers, as well as a signed "Ten Inch Hero" script and the "Nobody knows I'm a Lesbian"-shirt worn by Jensen's character Priestly in the same movie. More about the campaign can be found here.
Fandom Rocks closed its doors and ended its campaigns Tuesday, Jun 15th, 2010.
