This is the second year of the charity event, Can't Stop The Serenity and it's not too late to help!
On or around Joss Whedon's birthday (June 23) Serenity screenings (the best move ever) are held around the world for his favorite charity, Equality Now. It's a great chance to see the Big Damn Movie on the big screen again and to support women's rights.
From the website http://cantstoptheserenity.com:
"Equality Now is doing amazing work around the globe, bringing the vision of gender equality closer to reality every day through campaigns against issues such as rape, female genital mutilation, spousal abuse."
Last year over $65,000 was raised by screenings in 41 cities worldwide. This year the goal is to reach $100,000. With 51 cities participating and over $75,000 reported in so far we may just reach that goal!
The Austin screening sold out quickly so don't feel bad for missing it. But there are still ways to participate!
Magnets, T-Shirts, Posters and goodie bags are still available. And since not all the really cool stuff was raffled at the event due to time constraints, each purchase of $10 earns 5 raffle tickets!!!!!!!!!!!
To view and purchase go to: http://austin.cantstoptheserenity.com/merch.html
Items still available for purchase:
Program + Goodie Bag $10
Book, Finding Serenity $18
Some of the items up for raffle include:
Props from the Movie, "Serenity"
You can support charity, buy cool stuff and maybe win even cooler stuff! Why wait?
