Beaucoup Pop Sponsoring Benefit for Aurora Shooting Victims THIS SATURDAY

Hello Poppers! Um, I mean, welcome loyal Kentucky Geek Girl readers. This Saturday, September 1, my good friends at Beaucoup Pop are sponsoring a benefit for the victims of the shooting which took place in Aurora, Colorado the morning of July 20. As someone who attended a midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, my thoughts and prayers are constantly with the victims as they remember their loved ones, recover from their injuries, and try to put their lives back together. Though I am not able to be a part of the event, I encourage everyone to head out to Collectibles etc this Saturday and buy a commission from some great local artists or bid on something in the silent auction.

Artists from all over the country have stepped up to help make this event a success. Similar fundraisers are happening nation-wide and Collectibles Etc and Beaucoup Pop are working with All C's Collectibles in Aurora to ensure that the money raised makes it to those in the city who were affected by the tragic events of July 20. If you're not local to Kentucky, you can still make a donation by clicking Donate on the podcast's website!

Beaucoup Pop is comprised of Matt, Tressa, Justin, and Kerry who bring you your weekly dose of geekery. Among the guests that they have had on the show is Return of the Dapper Men artist Janet Lee. They've just released Episode 70, so head over to their site to check it out. Subscribe on iTunes and listen on Stitcher Radio for your smartphone!
