about the community
This is a community where fans of Amanda Tapping and her charitable initiatives can come together to make big ripples. Amanda herself is a natural giver and leader, inspiring others to lead a life of service, without ego or bravado. Amanda's fans are truly some of the most generous people that you could ever meet. One of the most wonderful things about being a part of her fandom is that it doesn't matter how late you get there, people will always be ready to welcome and embrace you. You might start out feeling that you can't make a difference but one thing I've learned is just how much being a part of this fandom shapes you. It has the power to transform your sense of self, to realise your potential, or to inspire you to greatness just through the sharing and the giving that goes on around you. You see something in someone else and it makes you want to take up that baton and run with it.
taking up the baton
Anyone is welcome to join and post within the community. You can expect news updates, fundraising ideas and events and hopefully - personal stories from those wishing to share what they're currently doing for the charities. You can bring anything to the table - because the more people you can encourage to participate, the better!

"Live Peace, Speak Kindness, Dwell in Possibility."
" I have children curled up against me. They touch my skin, my hair. I get kisses and children come flying at me for quick hugs. I look over at Jill and she is equally embraced. It is beyond magical. This is what it means to fill your soul."
"I think if I were to describe myself in pure feminist forms, I would say I want equality. We want respect not because we're women, but simply because we're human beings."
