Geeks Doing Good is doing GREAT!
The 2017 Geeks Doing Good summer fundraiser is in full swing, featuring a bunch of new products from new and returning partners. We're stoked to be working with Kevin Hearne, Myke Cole, Karen Hallion, JoCo Cruise, Rat Queens, Bitch Planet, Holly Black, Jim Butcher, Sex Criminals, Wyrmwood Gaming, and more! Stop by the fundraiser before it ends on June 12th at 11:59 pm, PT and check out the cool stuff--some of which has already sold out.
In the mean time, we figured once the fundraiser was underway, we'd have the chance to rest a little from all the work we've been doing getting it all organized, but nope. Getting some of this cool stuff produced is an ongoing process, and we've been talking with manufacturers, creators, and designers to get everything ready to order as soon as the campaign ends. We're also planning trips to a few conventions this summer (more on that soon!) and answering questions on the GDG campaign itself.
Maria hit a wall the other day at about 2 in the afternoon. We could tell she was tired, so when she said, "I'm just going to close my eyes for a couple minutes" we knew we'd lose her. Sure enough, she passed out for about 20 minutes. And Rachel took photos.
Working on campaigns like this is completely worth it. Everyone has been crazy supportive, and we're constantly delighted and amazed by how many people jump at the chance to help others (and maybe pick up some geeky goodies while they're at it). We have jobs where we constantly see people at their best, and it's fantastic.
Having said that, how about a video of us at our worst?
