From Creation Entertainment (Los Angeles, CA) Nathan Fillion, best known for starring in eight seasons on ABC’s Castle and in Joss Whedon’s FOX science fiction series Firefly and its continuation feature film Serenity that earned him a cult-like following of fans, has partnered with Creation Stands for an online flash campaign. The campaign, benefiting the Zimmer Children’s Museum, will kick off November 14 and run through November 28.
Fillion’s campaign, “Take Your Pick” is a vintage style t-shirt priced at $25. It cleverly depicts Fillion’s headshot image over six different roles he has portrayed with the words “Take Your Pick.”
“It’s brilliant that Creation Stands make is so easy for people to stand behind their fandom, and stand for a good cause at the same time,” said Fillion. “Best of all, I’m giving 100% of my proceeds to the Zimmer Children’s Museum. It’s a great local nonprofit, with programs that not only teach community values but that also helps students, empowering them with self-expression and leadership skills.”
Located on Museum Row in Los Angeles, the Zimmer Children’s Museum — “playing our way to a better world” — is both a museum and a youth development organization. The museum provides hands-on exhibits and free-play learning experiences that teach children from toddler to eight-years-old about social responsibility and community values. YouThink, the Zimmer’s innovative youth development program, provides middle and high school students from underserved schools with arts education, leadership and civic engagement programs.
Creation Stands was created in partnership with Creation Entertainment to engage today’s top actors to work directly with their fans to raise money for their favorite nonprofit organizations through the sale of actor-originated designs from fan artists. Successful campaigns have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity and have featured several notable actors such as William Shatner, Lana Parrilla, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, and Paul Wesley. “It’s rewarding to see the fans come together with their favorite stars to raise money for worthwhile nonprofits,” said Michelle
Henning, President of Creation Stands, “and as a company we are committed to substantive support for social causes.”
The first 100 people to purchase a Nathan Fillion t-shirt will receive a family 4-pack of free admission tickets to the Zimmer Children’s Museum. To purchase a t-shirt or learn more about Creation Stands, visit www.creationstands.com.
