Vote on the CSTS charity donation split

We need your vote! CSTS Global was asked to revisit the question of how much money goes to Equality Now and how much goes to other charities. Currently, at least 75% of all money raised at an event is sent to Equality Now with up to 25% available for other charities. Many cites donate 100% to Equality Now. There were weeks of discussion on Facebook, twitter, Whedonesque, our website, and our forums. The question has two choices. You can only vote once although you can change your vote until the poll is closed. You've only got until October 12, 2013 at 11:59 PM PST to get your vote counted.

Why Done the Impossible Supports CSTS

One of an ongoing series about our Sponsors

Done The Impossible supports Can't Stop The Serenity for many reasons. Charity and worthwhile causes are very near and dear to my heart, and that's why I've always endeavored to make them part of my personal and professional life.

In our complex world, there are many negative things we should improve and lots of beautiful things worthy of greater recognition and support. CSTS makes it easy to help Equality Now with their critically important cause and Done The Impossible is honored to help. And what could be better than combining a love of Firefly with helping others?

Taking over the Weekend

The Rivers and Bridges Brigade of Pennsylvania just can't let CSTS go! In one last big hurrah, they are having several events at the Pittsburgh Comin Con. They have a CSTS Pittsburgh table on the convention floor at the Monroeville Convention Center all three days, where you can play the "Badger's Dodgy Dice" game from this year's Serenity screening to win wicked cool prizes, purchase CSTS 2013 t-shirts, enter a raffle to win one of three great prize baskets and sign up to participate on a team at Sunday morning's "Hammer vs. Horrible" games.

Immediately following the games on Sunday, they’ll be screening "Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog" at noon.
Admission to Sunday's CSTS events is free of charge, but those who wish to attend must purchase admission to the Pittsburgh Comicon. Of course, donations are welcome with proceeds from CSTS events and activities at this year's Pittsburgh Comicon benefiting Equality Now.

Leeds has joined the CSTS Family with a screening on Sept 27th. Doors open at 6:00 for a prompt 6:30 start. After the movie, there will be a shindig at the White Swan pub for an evening of quizzes, shiny prizes & music. Food can be ordered in advance and be ready around 9:00 (which is when they stop serving food). Costumes are encouraged!

Madison, Wisconsin is back with a double feature. First up is Dr. Horible's Singalong Blog followed by Serenity. Tickets are $10.00 in advance and $13.00 at the door.

Toronto is also showing Dr. Horrible but combining it with a shindig and all sorts of shenanigans. There will be prizes for the best Dr. Horrible Themed Tshirt & best ELE member as well as the opportunity to build your own freezeray.

The Atlanta Browncoats close out Sept with a screening of Serenity on Sunday evening. This year they're asking everyone to bring canned food items to donate for their Serenity Screening Food Drive to benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank.

A Busy Busy Weekend

It may be mid-September but Can't Stop The Serenity shows no sign of slowing down! And in our typical display of Globalism, events are in 3 countries this weekend.

We'll start with Nowra, Australia. The Shoalhaven Browncoats are back for their 2nd year with doors opening at 5:00 and the event starting at 6:00. There will be food, a best dressed competition, an auction and sales. The Shoalhaven zoo has donated a family pass, a $50.00 item right there & there will be other exciting items. The main features will be Serenity of course as well as Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog.

Speeding around the world, we land at Miami Springs who are holding their first CSTS event although the Organizers are old hands at making CSTS fun.The SRF BRowncoats will be opening the doors at 5:00 with a happy Hour and have no scheduled closing time! We are reliably informed that one attendee will be a rescued Pelican- demonstrating where the money goes for the 2nd Charity. If Serenity & Dr. Horrible wasn't enough, also on board is an outstanding raffle, costume contest and live music by musician and Browncoat Rick Fernandez.

Drifting northward, we land at St. Louis, Mo where there is the first CSTS screening since 2008! Doors open at 9:00. There will be an auction, a costume contest and of course, Serenity. See it on a big screen again!

Grande Prairie Alberta's event starts at noon to give plenty of time for all the fun.The 28 Fighting Swans are back for a second year, determined to have more fun and raise more money. There will be an auction, best costume contest, an evil laugh contest and of course Serenity and Dr. Horrible.

Back to the Pacific Coast, we find Orange County once again holding a CSTS event. Like the other screenings this weekend, this will be one to remember. They have gotten permission from Fox to show Out of Gas. Written by Tim Minear, this is Joss's favorite episode. As if Serenity and Out of Gas wasn't enough, there will also be a live auction, door prizes & shiny merchandise. Last but certainly not least, live music from The Fallen Stars who will be debuting their EP of Firefly inspired songs.Please note that ticket sales for the event are at the table in the lobby of the theater--Folks should not stand in line at the box office outside.

On Sunday we are pleased to welcome another new group to the CSTS family. Arcata, CA has an active Browncoat Club in Humboldt State Univrsity and now they are inviting the rest of Arcata to join the excitement. The Arcata Theatre Lounge even promises to serve Mudders Milk! There will be trivia contests, prize drawings, and a cosplay parade and of course, Serenity.
