Geeks for Peace

Kids for Peace (KFP) recently held their inaugural Geeks for Peace event in early July during Comic-Con weekend. Hosted by Morgan Spurlock, Kevin Smith, and Gotham Chopra, and featuring other special guests including Giancarlo Esposito and Frances Fisher, the event saw tons of celebrities and industry luminaries gather together to enjoy live music, dancing, live art by Mr. DVice, art auctions curated by Natalie Kates and Lori Zimmer, an interactive photo wall, and delicous food and drinks. Entertainment was provided by Band From TV, a charity cover band comprised of actors from American television series including Greg Grunberg from Heroes, Scott Grimes from American Dad and Justified, Efren Ramirez from Napoleon Dynamite, Eddie Matos from Finding Carter, and Adrian Pasdar from Heroes and Agents of Shield. The idea of Geeks for Peace was conceived by Morgan Spurlock after he was presented with the Peace Hero Award by the youth of KFP in 2013. Funds raised during Geeks for Peace will help KFP support and expand their programs to underserved youth in the U.S., Iraq, Kenya, Liberia, and Pakistan.
