The Outlander fandom is powerful. It brings people together, who without the book or television series, may have never have met. Outlander is a medium to form friendships, share experiences, and most of all build comradery through our love for the book and television series. There is no doubt that Outlander fans are passionate. However, when you combine passion and purpose, it can generate change that expands well beyond any border. There is no better example of the level of impact one group can have, in and beyond their community, than the Southern Sassenachs. Driven to create a positive impact in the lives of others, they have come together to support the charities of Bloodwise and World Child Cancer – successfully raising money for each of these organizations. It is with great pride and pleasure that Sass3 share their story: from their early beginning of coming together to share their enjoyment of the Outlander series, creating a strong sense of community within their group, to ultimately transforming their passion for a greater purpose.
Have you ever found yourself exploring a new city and then become awestruck by an unexpected finding? That is what happened to me on my most recent trip to San Francisco, California. This trip was meant to be a getaway to a big city, introducing my children to all the joys of San Francisco. I relished the opportunity to share my favorite activities and expose them to new experiences. From cable car rides to appreciating architecture and art – we found ourselves making memories that would last a lifetime! However, it was our interest in exploring a quaint street in the heart of Union Square that led me to one of my most memorable experiences. I found myself facing the back entrance to the world-renowned Britex Fabrics!
