Last month the Philippines was hit by horrible flooding, leaving many in serious need of help. I was deeply saddened by the footage circulating the news. In an effort to help, I put up charity auctions on ebay. 100% of the proceeds for the 10 signed prints and cosplay costume I listed went to the Philippine disaster relief. I was elated to see the prints sell out in minutes and the cosplay costume bring in over $100. In total the donation was $202. I’m so grateful for everyone who made this possible, and hope the money went on to help people who really needed it.
I also sent prints with fellow cosplayer Jerry Polence to the Philippines, and she was kind enough to put them in a charity auction. I have the final tally from Fantasy Quest II for the donation total- 11,000 Pesos or roughly $265 US! I was so blown away by this! Just 3 prints! There are big hearts in the anime community.
That’s a grand total of $467!
Way more than I could have donated on my own. Big thank you to everyone on my facebook who rallied around the charity and lots of love to those who donated.
