We do help Chiefs charities,I helped Will To Succeed last year, I was very involved with TeamPriest for a year,our calender is going to help Ronald McDonald (Trent's charity) and Eddie Kennison's Quick Start. We have helped Casey's First Down For Downs Syndrome, JA's Diabetes Walk. We helped out Hicks For Hearts this Tuesday. We are in constant talk with the players on helping out their events and taking helping them to the next level. We help charities that aren't tied to the Chiefs,to get players out to their events to help raise money, challenging players to do more in the community. That isn't the main mission of this organization though, it is to reach as many children as we can, to teach them how to be a great Chiefs fan and more importantly how to give back to the community in a totally positive way. Here is a link so you can see how we are trying to accomplish these goals-http://kcsuperfans.com/site_pages.cfm?pageID=963
We are literally killing ourselves to help out the communities throughout the Chiefs Nation and I challenge every fan to get involved to do the same,even if it just one little thing you do. Together as the greatest fans in the world, we can truely build mountains in our communities!!!

As far as them being "superfans" I have already stated my opinion on that. For me it is simply a way for these guys to gain some semblence of fame, I would bet about anything that when they meet people out of "costume" that they will mention "who they are" within minutes. So it is simply a case of them wanting to draw attention to themselves. And as far as their charity work goes...... great for them, really I admire anyone that does that. But if they REALLY wanted to help the Chiefs and be a "superfan" why don't they devote more time and energy to volunteering at some of the players charities instead of someday dreaming of having their own special little sign down on the field besides Wil Shields "Wil to Succeed" charity banner. Personally I am irritated by people that are constantly "needing" the attention they are seeking. I have often heard the better person you are the less you have to talk about it for people to realize it. I think it is pretty similar for fans as well.
