Nerd HQ is a fantastic fan driven event that happens in San Diego, California. Run by Zac's company The Nerd Machine, Nerd HQ is a mini-con that offers alternative programing to the hustle and bustle going on across the street. This unique event is known for connecting fans with their favorite actors in an intimate, and fairly unmoderated format. There are places to hang out, eat, recharge, test out some of the latest and greatest video games, play in a retro arcade, watch movies, listen to music, and dance the night away! The best part is that most of Nerd HQ is offered absolutely FREE! And - when the panels do have a fee it goes completely to charity.
Exciting programing like the famous Conversations for a Cause and Smiles for Smiles help to raise money for Operation Smile, which provides life changing surgery to children with cleft lips and palates. All this while giveing fans access to their favorite celebrities like no other event.
But what if you can't attend? Well that's where Nerd HQ really shines! Unlike many other conventions that offer a virtual pass for a price (usually the same cost as a full attendee badge), Nerd HQ offers all of it's panels streaming LIVE online completely FREE. That means that even if you can't be there in person you can still participate, and this year Zac has said the folks at home will have even more chances to interact with the actors on stage.
I'm supporting the #IWantMyNerdHQ campaign and today Zac and I will be hanging out so that you can learn more about it too! Every $5 contribution helps and goes towards making something magical to bring you together with some of your favorite stars. You can contribute at IWantMyNerdHQ.com we're a long way from the goal and we need your help!
