Ever wondered what it would be like to be in a room full of 300 nerds asking questions such as “Can you imitate a Velociraptor for us?” from your favorite sci-fi celebrities? How about playing a selection of video games before they’ve even been released? Watching a movie like “Serenity” in a baseball field full of like-minded nerds like you? Checking out new gadgets before they hit the market? Does any of this sound like your kinda party?
Well than Nerd HQ 2014 is the place to be because these are exactly the types of things you can expect and so much MORE!
“Being nerdy just means being passionate about something, including everyone – the coolest people on Earth are passionate and therefore nerdy about something whatever it is, whether it’s sports, or gaming, or technology, or fashion, or beauty, or food, or whatever.” ~Zachary Levi
Since 2010, Zachary Levi, (aka Fandral the Dashing in “Thor: The Dark World”), has been putting on an event so epic in its concept that it can only be compared to Comic Con, which Nerd HQ just happens to coincide with every year in San Diego but has no affiliation with.
As amazing as this event is, last year Nerd HQ almost didn’t happen because the funding from sponsors didn’t cover most of the cost and Zachary Levi had fronted the money himself. It takes some serious amounts of drachma (money) to fund such an epic event. That is why Zac is turning to you the fans.
The problem is only a small number of folks can afford to give a lot, whereas many of us can only afford a little. Zachary Levi has set up this fundraiser through Indiegogo so that no matter how much or how little you can afford, everyone is given the same opportunity and appreciated for even the smallest of donation of $5.
“Fans will treat something preciously if given the opportunity to do so.” ~Zachary Levi
The best part is 100% of the money raised by celebrity panels, auction items, photos and signings at Nerd HQ will be donated to a very worthy cause “Operation Smile”.
Last year Nerd HQ earned $215,000 for the charity. This year they hope to earn even more!
Here’s Zachary Levi himself to explain it so much better!
Your donation will guarantee your name on the “Nerd HQ Wall of Honor”. In addition every cent donated will go into making Nerd HQ 2014 the best event possible. But it can only happen with your help. P.L.E.A.S.E consider making a donation and if you are flat broke, which I totally understand trust me, then help us by sharing this message through the social media buttons below these photos.
