Two Great Causes! Both Worth Your Time and Effort!

Hey Everybody, Rick here with something pretty cool.  Want to help someone get a much deserved recognition?  Of course you do!  Especially when that someone is ADAM WEST!  For those of you who don't know, Mr. West has been best known for his portrayal as Batman in the 1960s TV series of the same name and also plays Mayor Adam West in the FOX show Family Guy.  However, the man's career is WAY more distinguished than that.  He has a career that spans more than 50 years and this year, he finally gets his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

However.....

There is a caveat.  The people who earn this recognition have to pay for their star and the price to get your name on the Walk of Fame is Thirty Thousand Dollars, something that is unfortunately relatively out of the price range of the esteemed actor.  But there is hope because Ralph Garman of KROQ's Kevin and Bean Show and the Hollywood Babble-On Podcast has been one of the individuals trying to get Mr. West this recognition for several years now and has given us fans a little extra incentive to help with these efforts.  But Ralph and the intrepid group of people cannot do it alone which is why they decided to give us a little extra incentive if we help with the cause.  On January 28, 2012, Ralph recorded a chat with Mr. West chronicling his 50 year career and has made it available for us to listen to and enjoy for small donation in the amount of two dollars. 

Obviously, you can donate more, but the minimum they are asking for is two bucks.  All proceeds go directly to the bill for paying for the star on the Walk of Fame.  I had the opportunity to listen to the interview and it is not only very entertaining, but very informative because Ralph covers many different aspects of Mr. West's life.  If you are or ever were a fan of the 1960s Batman show, you owe it to yourself to listen to this podcast show. It really is that good, and it is for a great cause too!  Here is the link to the recording and where you can make your donation

Speaking of  great causes, our friends from Can't Stop the Serenity have a small request for you.  They are trying to raise money to order Browncoats T-Shirts for an upcoming convention here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.  Check out the graphic for where you can send your donations for this wonderful cause.  All proceeds go to the Equality Now charity which benefits women and girls who have been subjugated and denied their right to equality.  It is an excellent cause and one that definitely deserves all the help it can get!

That's all we have for now! Thank you and stay geeky!
