Hello FanimeCon forum members! I've been away from here for quite a while, looks like a lot of changes and new faces around. Lots of new forums since I was here last, this one sounds like the best place for me to be posting this. If not, please go ahead and relocate it.
Yesterday I decided that I'd had enough and could no longer just sit and watch what was happening over in Japan, so many "click here to support" or "repost to show your support" types of things showing up, but no one actually doing anything.
So I've put together "A Little Something More," a fundraising site through Crowdrise to collect donations for Network for Good that will go towards tsunami and earthquake relief in Japan.
I know the first thoughts of a post like this will be along the lines of "must be a scam or spam," but this is 100% real. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crowdrise
I figure, where better to share what I am doing than among my friends and family of FanimeCon. I hope that you will all check it out, and if possible give a little something to the cause.
As a bonus incentive to donate right now, Crowdrise is having a promotion where any donations for $16 or $26 before March 31st, 2011 will get you entered into a drawing for an iPod Nano. Drawing is to be held on April 8th, 2011. I have nothing to do with the results of this drawing. http://www.crowdrise.com/uploads/promos/rules/Rules_10035.pdf

Thank you for taking the time to read, and please don't delete or lock this, it really is something important.
