Linda Blair and the World Heart Foundation

I have met Linda Blair several times, but last year at the Motor City Comic Con was the best encounter.  It's not that she was unpleasant on the previous times, but she was just so lively this time.
As always, Blair was promoting the Linda Blair World Heart organization.  Blair had several pieces of merchandise for purchase with the proceeds going to the foundation.  There was also a simple "donations" jar for the cause.  She gladly discussed the organization, without being overly pushy or obnoxious about it.  If you asked, she gladly started talking.
All monies collected went to the LBWH foundation, which fights animal overpopulation and animal cruelty.  It's a great cause and Blair is a great ambassador, publicizing the cause at every signing she does.
She also bounced back and forth, taking photos with her fans.  She was extremely accommodating, insisting that everyone check their photos to make sure they were good enough.  It is that type of dedication that really makes an impression on me (and most fans).
