The Season of Giving: Support BTVS Alumni Charity Causes

initiative banner

As a very large fan community, we have the power to make a difference towards a number of causes championed by our favorite BTVS actors and actresses. During the holiday season, it’s very easy to get wrapped up in your own affairs, because hey. the holidays are not easy! However, you need to remember to take a step back and put things in perspective. Yes, you may be stressed out about planning dinner and how you’re going to buy and wrap gifts on time. But think about the people on this Earth who don’t have the opportunity to partake in these preparations let alone the holidays themselves. People who live in poverty or suffer from circumstances or conditions out of their control. When you put yourselves in their shoes, it really makes you stop and consider all the things you take for granted, and forces you to count your blessings. When we are in a position of good fortune, it makes it all that more important for us to give some of that fortune to others who desperately need it.

As I thought of all the causes that our beloved BTVS stars support, it got me thinking. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is such a powerful cultural phenomenon that produced equally powerful and highly regarded actors and actresses. Along with great television and inspiring stars comes a devoted fandom. Cue us, a community of fans that is strong as ever years after the show aired. Because we are so numerous, I got the idea to band together this year and pool our resources for organizations supported by Sarah Michelle Gellar, Eliza Dushku and Joss Whedon. Thus, “Fans in Action” was born, along with the nifty tag line “As a fandom we stand, to give those in need a helping hand.”

By donating to a cause that speaks to you on this post, know that you are making a difference in someone’s life for the better. It doesn’t matter how much you can give – every contribution greatly helps your fellow human beings.

With that being said, I have no doubt that we can set our goal high this holiday season. (Keep in mind this goal reflects my audience reach – I can’t go setting $6,000 as a goal when I don’t even have that many likes on Facebook ;) ). I’ve selected 3 causes that would benefit greatly from some support from our fan community. If we raise a total of $200 for each cause, we can collectively give $600 to those in need before the end of the year. If we are successful, then that will be a sign to me that we can do more great things like this in the future! Lastly, anyone who donates (to either or multiple of the causes) will get a little virtual stocking with their name on it on the “All Star Scoobies 2014” page on this website! Continue reading

The Essential Buffy the Vampire Slayer Holiday Wish List

‘Tis the season everyone! Since we can’t all have Angel popping out of gift box,

lulzangel

I’ve decided to create a wish list for Buffy fans for the holidays. Since mostly every item can only be purchased online, rather than make a document for you to print I made a shareable online wishlist including links to all the items listed in this post so you can shop and share with friends easier. You can find it here, the button will take you to a new window:

My wishlist

When compiling ideas for this post, I tried to find unique items that most fans might not have. This list would be useless if I just listed things like “Buffy DVDs” or “Season 8 comics”. Hell no, man. I’m including 23 different gift ideas that absolutely any Buffy fan will love. I’ve sorted them into 3 price intervals for your convenience. (However, shipping and handling is not included in the cost because it varies by area.) Happy browsing!! Continue reading

The Best of Buffy on Facebook #2: Peace, Love & Sarah Michelle Gellar

buffy on facebook

One may think that running this website, running a Tumblr and Facebook page for The Cynical Slayer, and almost daily re-watches of Buffy would be enough Slayer goodness for me. But as all fans know, you can never have enough Buffy. That being said, I count on a number of Facebook fan pages to provide me with my daily dosage of Buffyverse goodness. Running a Facebook fan page is no small feat, and there are so many quality Buffy ones out there that I want to share with my followers. These posts are dedicated to giving you information about the page administrators, the content that the page entails, and how to follow the page.


Today’s second installment of The Best of Buffy on Facebook is:

Peace, Love & Sarah Michelle Gellar
