Takei's first post, shown above, went up over the weekend and was a repost of an image he first shared on his Facebook page. He captioned the bumpersticker photo: "I’m trying out this new 'Tumblr' program my intern told me about. Anyone out there in the blogosphere? From my Facebook page earlier today, 'How would it be if things were reversed?'"

Expect more than just well worn memes on Takei's page -- he has teamed up with Tumblr and Humans of New York to promote an Indiegogo campaign for people affected by Hurricane Sandy. The fundraiser has already collected more than $215,000.

1. KONY 2012
Invisible Children, a movement seeking to end the conflict in Uganda, created the film Kony 2012. They hoped it would accelerate the arrest of Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) leader Joseph Kony, who has been kidnapping and abducting Uganda’s youth for nearly three decades. With more than 100 million views in six days, Kony 2012 became the most viral video in history. The movement, however, ended quite strangely. The video's creator, Jason Russell, was detained in the Pacific Beach neighborhood, with charges of public drunkenness and lewd behavior.
