The Too Sweet Fundraiser is a project for Jarod’s 32nd birthday on the 9th of October. It’s a way for his fans and fans of the 100 to come together and support a good cause and to spread some positivity.
The charity we’ve chosen to raise funds for is Rainbow Railroad, a Toronto-based charity that helps LGBTQ people escape persecution and violence. In many countries across the globe, sadly, people still live in fear and real threat from institutional, government sanctioned violence simply for daring to be who they are and Rainbow Railroad helps bring people to safety and freedom.
This charity does incredible, life changing work and has been endorsed by Jarod for this campaign. Jarod has portrayed LGBTQ characters at several points in his career, and Nathan Miller stands out as one of The 100’s most unassuming, intersectional LGBTQ characters. But more importantly The 100 fandom is full of people who find representation in the show’s themes and characters, characters who are as diverse as the fans who love them. The 100 fandom has shown up time and time again for the causes that inspire them, and together, through positivity, we can help where it matters.
