In a previous blog post titled “Charity On Two Fronts” I talked about how Crystal Allen was running a GoFundMe page for her charity to cook meals for the medical staff and frontline workers who are helping with the pandemic.
Ms. Allen wanted to give back by preparing healthy home cooked meals for nurses, firefighters, paramedics and more. I thought this was a wonderful idea and sent in some money on the GoFundMe page. For those of you who don’t know, Ms. Allen is an actress that has appeared as the Orion, D’nesh, on the Star Trek: Enterprise episode, Bound. She also appeared in the Star Trek fan film, Of Gods and Men, directed by Tim Russ. She was willing to send autographed pictures of her character to anyone that donated $40 or more. Donating for a good cause was the primary reason for contributing, in my mind the autograph was just frosting on the cake.
I was having a bad day before I opened up the mailbox and discovered that my signed photo had arrived. Since this brightened up my day, I decided that I should post about it on the blog. Plus I also wanted to show to others that gifts for donating were arriving as promised. If you think that this type of charity event is a wonderful idea, I’d encourage you to send in a few dollars.
