Connecting Humans:
other online fan groups using the internet
to engage in philanthropy

This information was published originally on July 5, 1999; some of the URLs are no longer functional. You can still find the information though -- simply type in the URL that isn't working into archive.org.

If you are interested in fan-based volunteering beyond what is compiled here, check out Transformative Works and Cultures, an online journal launched in 2009 that looks at various aspects of fan fiction (fan-created fiction inspired by their favorite movies, TV shows and books), comic book fandom, movie fandom, video game fandom, comic and fan conventions, and more. Specifically, see The media festival volunteer: Connecting online and on-ground fan labor," a 2014 paper by Robert Moses Peaslee, Jessica El-Khoury, and Ashley Liles, which uses data gathered at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, in September 2012.


This information is taken from the organizations' Web site. This is by no means a comprehensive list of fan-based activities in 1999, but it is a good sampling of what was happening. Not all of these groups are still active, but the Web sites, probably all archived at archive.org, provide a good record of their activities:
