ADAPTED FROM CREATION’S OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
No one has enough t-shirts. Ever. Let’s face it. If you’re in fandom, you have t-shirts. They’re comfy, they identify what you love, they shout what you believe, and they are awesome. And in some cases, they are also a way to help charities while showing off the fandoms you adore.
Nathan Fillion knows this, and right now he is counting on it. So he has partnered with Creation Stands for an online flash campaign to benefit his chosen charity, the Zimmer Children’s Museum. The flash sale kicked off on November 14 and runs through November 28, and Head Over Feels has all the info on how to get your shirt and help Nathan help children.
His campaign is called “Take Your Pick” –a vintage-style t-shirt priced at a mere $25. And it’s AWESOME. The t-shirt has Nathan’s headshot image over six different roles he has portrayed with the words “Take Your Pick.”
Umm, yes. Yes, we will.
“It’s brilliant that Creation Stands make is so easy for people to stand behind their fandom, and stand for a good cause at the same time,” Nathan said. “Best of all, I’m giving 100% of my proceeds to the Zimmer Children’s Museum. It’s a great local nonprofit, with programs that not only teach community values but that also helps students, empowering them with self-expression and leadership skills.”
The Zimmer Children’s Museum is on Museum Row in LA. It’s a museum and a youth development organization that believes in “playing our way to a better world.” The museum provides hands-on exhibits and free-play learning experiences that teach children from toddler to eight-years-old about social responsibility and community values. YouThink, the Zimmer’s innovative youth development program, provides middle and high school students from underserved schools with arts education, leadership and civic engagement programs.
Creation Stands, part of Creation Entertainment, works with actors from all over fandom and helps them work directly with their fans to raise money for their favorite nonprofit organizations through the sale of actor-originated designs from fan artists. William Shatner, Lana Parrilla, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, and Paul Wesley just a new of the names who have taken part and offered their designs for sale. It’s a tremendously awarding venture that has raised many thousands of dollars for a host of charities, and it gives us–the fans–a chance to join up with our favorite stars to raise money for worthwhile nonprofits.
And there’s a bonus, if you act fast. It’s not Nathan coming to your house for dinner, alas, but it’s still pretty cool if you live in or will be in the Los Angeles area: the first 100 people to get a shirt will also get a family four pack of free admission tickets to the museum.
