Things have been quiet on the Fandom Rocks front as we wound down Campaign Four and began preparing for Campaign Five. Today, I am happy to announce the charities you selected for Campaign Five.

The top charity, with 57% of your votes, was the American Cancer Society. Given the recent passing of Kim Manners and undoubtedly the personal connection cancer prevention and treatment has for many people, Fandom Rocks is proud to support this organization with our fellow fans.

“With chartered divisions throughout the country and over 3,400 local offices, the American Cancer Society (ACS) is committed to fighting cancer through balanced programs of research, education, patient service, advocacy, and rehabilitation.”

The second charity was the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

“The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide.”

While the charities for this campaign seem to differ greatly from previous campaigns, I believe they are both strong proponents for improving human life and addressing relevant health issues. Through these choices, our fellow fans demonstrate that Fandom Rocks is willing and able to acknowledge and tackle challenging problems with personal connections.
