Geeks Giving Gifts

MISSION STATEMENT

Geeks Giving Gifts is a fundraising effort comprised of video game professionals, cosplayers, and fans coming together Voltron-style to affect positive change in the world. We are geeks first and foremost, and believe that if we harness even a fraction of the power we put into getting the best speedrun times and collecting every last trinket in all our RPGs, we can make a real difference to those in need.

The Calendar


The 11″x17″ calendar is twelve months (July 2014 – June 2015) of the finest geek celebrities and cosplayers doing science while defying the laws of physics. Shot by Greg De Stefano and produced by Strangely Compelling Multimedia, it features genuine geek girls such as LeeAnna Vamp, Chloe Dykstra, Alicia Marie, Cristina Vee, and more like you’ve never seen them before – in zero gravity!

Our inspiration comes from the puzzle-platformer video game, Constant C (Xbox Live Arcade and Steam) from publisher 5pb/Mages. Constant C’s gameplay revolves around physics-based platforming and puzzle solving by manipulating time and gravity. Someone had to invent a way to control time/gravity, and copious amounts of research have concluded that the scientists looked like our calendar girls.

5pb/Mages’ most well-known title is Steins;Gate, a visual novel game turned manga turned anime about time travel, so protagonist Makise Kurisu makes a special appearance in the calendar.

Limited quantity available – order NOW or miss out.

The Charity

100% of calendar proceeds go towards supporting the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan via Doctors Without Borders.

Typhoon Haiyan is the deadliest Philippine typhoon on record, killing over 6,000 people in that country alone. As of January 2014, bodies are still being found.

Doctors Without Borders is an association made up of doctors and health sector workers providing assistance to populations in distress, to victims of natural or man-made disasters and to victims of armed conflict. The organization operates efficiently with minimal fundraising and administrative costs, meaning more of your dollars go directly to those in need.

“It’s simple really: go where the patients are.” – Bernard Kouchner, Founder
