Every year Anime Detour hosts a charity auction to raise funds for the American Red Cross charity, as well as helping out our local community. Last year through the American Red Cross's Disaster Relief fund, many of you donated to help the Tsunami Victim's in Japan, and Detour was able to raise $36,243.84. Considering the age group of the average Con-goer, that is Amazing.
 
The better part- This year we're doing it again. Not only are we helping people, we're showing the rest of the world what a caring and giving community the Anime community really is. We're not just fans, we're a family.   So this year if you have something special that's been collecting dust, or some special piece of artwork you personally would like to donate to the cause, please do so. Our Charity Auction staff is taking donations this year. Every dollar counts.
 
You can help people affected by disasters like the situation in Japan as well as countless crises at home and around the world, by making a donation to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief.  Your gift enables the Red Cross to prepare for and provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance in response to disasters.
