Why Fandoms are Good Things (aka, Geeks for Charity)  
So, "Loki's Army"--which is basically an enormous Loki-based fandom admittedly made up mostly of girls--started something called the Free Loki Campaign. The original purpose of this was to petition Marvel to make a movie in which Loki was the protagonist. Yes, it is geeky, and even I didn't bother to sign it.  Mostly because, with Disney holding the reigns, I can't see them ever letting Tom Hiddleston go, what with the enormous amounts of money that he alone has made them. Yeah, Disney has a way of tying people into contracts that they can't get out of.

Anyway, one day, one of the original instigators of the Free Loki Campaign realized that, with well over a thousand people who signed this petition--and thus showing their ultimate geekiness, loyalty to Loki and Tom Hiddleston, and giving over their email addresses--they could do some good with it. Therefore, they have decided to attempt to run a charity drive for Operation Smile in the name of Loki/Tom Hiddleston fans, naming Tom Hiddleston (who really is a wonderful, charitable person himself) as their inspiration.

I would love to donate to anyone who asked me, I really would. However, I am poor. Like...can't make my rent poor. However, I feel like I can do a little good, at least, by passing this on to anyone who can.

And I'll do a more complete life update in a little while.
