Thank you to everyone who attended An Evening at Caritas on Saturday August 9, 2014! It was a small intimate event, and fun was had by all as we raised money for Kids Need to Read in honor of Andy!

On Sunday, July 27th in Room 6BCF, 3:30-5pm Fandom Charities™/Whedonopolis™ will be presenting our interactive screening of “Once More With Feeling” as the closing event of the con for the 8th consecutive year!
So mark it in red ink on your homemade SDCC schedules. (You all make those, too, right?)
If you enjoy getting your ya-yas out in a room packed with Buffistas and Scoobies, who put on their own light show with cellphones and light sabers, then this is definitely the event for you! And if you’ve never had the pleasure of such a thing, this is your opportunity.
Plus, you never know who may stop by! Such as Nicholas Brendan (Xander Harris), at this past screening!

On the Saturday before Halloween, fans of Dr. Horrible turned out to the 5th Annual Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and The Guild Charity Screening whichand featured many special guests that included… Jane Espenson, Brad “Cheeks” Bell, Doug Jones, Ben Edlund, Fran Kranz, Shawna Trpcic, Georges Jeanty, Greg Aronowitz, David Burns and Michael Canaan, among others. Newly added to the lineup of screenings were the web series “Husbands” and the Skyrim Parodies. Thanks to the generous support of the attendees and guests donation was made to Best Friends Animal Society of Los Angeles! We also gathered non-perishable food for the Sova Community Food and Resource Program.
Best Friends Animal Society of Los Angeles is a grassroots effort to place so-called “unadoptable” cats and dogs into good homes, and to “reduce the number of unwanted pets through effective spay and neuter programs”. They also collaborate with animal rescue groups and city shelters, promoting kindness and care for animals. Best Friends expressed their gratitude to Whedonopolis: “Thank you so much for your amazing and generous gift in support of Best Friends Animal Society of Los Angeles. With this incredible investment we will be able to continue to save the lives of many homeless dogs and cats.” The Sova Community Food and Resource Program is operated by the Jewish Family Service, and dedicates itself to preventing and alleviating hunger and poverty throughout the Los Angeles area through food distribution and supportive services. Attendees and staff alike had a fantastic time scaring up some Halloween Dr. Horrible-ness, while helping others through charity in the spirit of Penny. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone next year, as Whedonopolis will add even more fun!

This year the charity is Best Friends Animal Society/Los Angeles which is leading NKLA, a coalition of animal rescue organizations, city shelters and passionate individuals dedicated to ending the killing of healthy and treatable pets in L.A. shelters. The Homeless-ness problem is affecting pets too.
There will also be a canned food drive for SOVA Community Food & Resource Program SOVA’s mission is clear: to reduce hunger and poverty in Los Angeles. For each item brought in (Canned Tuna/Salmon, Peanut Butter and Canned Meat) you will be entered for a special drawing.
Previous screenings have raised thousand of dollars for charities such as The Mr Holland’s Opus Foundation, PATH Ventures (People Assisting the Homeless), The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation and Kids Need to Read (co-founded by Whedon alumnus, Nathan Fillion, CASTLE).
