While Whovians are gearing up for the big 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, one remarkable fan is celebrating by doing his best to do so by getting fans to donate to charity.
Craig Hurle, Whovian Extraordinaire and admin of one of the most popular (and by far the best) Facebook fan pages called The Doctor Who Hub, is reaching out to Whovians to donate to the Unite Against Cancer charity – an organization set up in 2012 to fund research into new cancer treatments.
Using the JustGiving.com site, which is like Kickstarter but for charitable causes, Hurle has set up Doctor Who Fans Unite Against Cancer, with a deadline of November 23, 2013, otherwise now forever known as the Day of the Doctor.
"I’m fundraising for Unite Against Cancer because of the passing of my Father in Law to Cancer," Craig states on the page. "The fundraising ends on the Doctor Who 50th – November 23rd, 2013! Plenty of time to donate as little or as much as you can, every little helps. Doctor Who fans against Cancer, Unite!"
Craig’s done A LOT in helping promote Doctor Who via fans on Facebook – and helped foster an extraordinarily strong community spirit among Whovians online. His charity run to Unite Against Cancer should be getting more attention, in my mind – and frankly, I’m surprised the BBC hasn’t reported about it yet.
That being said, YOU can help too. Join in the 50th celebrations by making a donation over at Doctor Who Fans Unite Against Cancer.
