Most of my writing here is about fictional heroes, and sometimes those heroes find ways to fight the good fight in the real world, too.
During my travels as a writer about (and a fan of) such heroism, I’ve had the honor to befriend and often work with Adrian Paul, whom most of you know as Duncan MacLeod from the HIGHLANDER television series (and two of the movies). Truly one of the kindest and hardest working people I’ve ever met.
The most rewarding of that work has been for his charity, the PEACE Fund, which he founded to Protect, Educate, and Aid Children Everywhere.
Our newest fundraising initiative is called Celebs4Kids, and you can read more about it by clicking the link.
The concept is simple. Celebrities at conventions, concerts, or other public events can get their photo snapped flashing the “peace” sign, and fans can download the photos in exchange for a donation to the Fund.
So how do YOU come in? In most cases, YOU are the photographer. If you get a chance to meet your favorite celebrity, you can take a photo and submit it to the site (with their permission and the proper release form, of course) along with your story of meeting them and getting the picture.
It’s a quick, fun, easy way to raise money for children around the world who need it, and you can check out a gallery of all the celebrities who’ve contributed so far.
Spread the word! And thank you.
