Please join Kids Need to Read as we celebrate the official opening of our new headquarters!
As many of you know, one of our charities is Kids Need to Read (KNTR for Short), and they're expanding at a crazy-awesome rate this year. So much so that they need a few extra folks to pitch in and help out on their upcoming special events.
If you're able to help, please give Lori a call at 480-256-0115 or by emailing info (at) kidsneedtoread.org
We Browncoats enjoy participating in charity events! Well here's a nice easy one that you can join in on from the comfort of your own computer (or even phone). One of our original members, known online as GermanCityGirl, and her counterpart, the aptly named GermanCity, moved to Seattle several years ago and have since become very involved with GeekGirlCon (worth looking up).
On October 25th, GermanCity will be representing GeekGirlCon in a 24 hour marathon to raise money for Seattle Children's Hospital. You can watch him (and the D&D team) play through Hoard of the Dragon Queen in a livestream on the D&D Twitch TV channel. You can donate to their efforts on their Extra-Life.org page any time.
There was a time, folks who openly admitted themselves to be nerds were ostracized. Not so now. Nerd culture has become downright cool! Naturally, the original nerds at PBS are looking to unite with the local nerd community. The ASU Homecoming Parade will once again play host to the PBS Nerd Walk, where geeks from all corners are invited to come show their colors.
