Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I volunteer multiple times a year as a blood drive recruiter for the Heinlein Society. We participate with multiple hospitals in the metro Boston area, collecting donations from Science Fiction, Fantasy and Steampunk fans alike.
Why are you participating?: 

When people hear the terms "widow" or "disabled" they think "Oh, what a shame." I've never considered either status a reason to be pitied. These are things that have happened to me but do not define who I am.

Why are you participating?: 

As a Latina woman I grew up around racism and I want to make a difference by joining this organization and making the public aware that racism still exists, still hurts, and is just a misunderstanding about the different cultures that live in our society. The three L's.

I am the President of the Community Service Club at my school!
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating because my goal is to make our community a better place! I strongly believe in individualism and free expression! As an artist I am inspired by everything and anything! I write music because I want to communicate with others and annihilate labels that are put on us!

Why are you participating?: 

I have been bullied for everything from being overweight to being in a wheelchair. Instead of firing back, you need to do something about it.
