George Takei has joined Tumblr in aid of raising funds for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
It all started when Takei’s nephew asked the actor why he didn’t have a Tumblr account, given his “love of goofy pictures.”
Takei thought about it and decided that in addition to creating a dedicated place to share his “goofy pictures,” he wanted to do a good deed for others. “Friends, I’ve begun a Tumblr account! I’ve paired up with Tumblr and Humans of NY to raise funds for victims of Hurricane Sandy,” he said.
“Check out my Tumblr at the link below, and click on my image to offer your help. I’ve even provided some special Takei swag for certain levels of donors. Many thanks.”
The Tumblr site, located here, includes a link to the HONY (Humans of New York) & Tumblr Hurricane Sandy Fundraiser.
The HONY & Tumblr Indiegogo site explains their mission: “Tumblr and Humans of New York are teaming up to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. For ten days beginning November 11th, we will be documenting and sharing the stories of those affected by the storm. We hope to show all sides of the story, featuring not only the victims of the storm but also the first responders and volunteers who are helping them recover. Hurricane Sandy revealed the power of nature, as well as the power of humanity. We aim to document both. By doing so, we hope to encourage YOU to contribute the relief efforts.”
