If you want to have faith in humanity, taking a look at Anime Fans Give Back should help. Last year the folks over at the One Piece Podcast organized the anime community and raised over $30,000 for the relief effort after the earthquake. The better news is that this was not a one-time event. This year on March 10th (just a few weeks away) there will be another 24-hour marathon of podcasting and guests. I am sure you are all thinking that AGC is making an announcement that they will be participating this year. I don’t think that will be happening, we’re small and they want people to tune in to hear people that are interesting
This does not mean that I will be listening to the event. I plan on listening for as much as I can that day and making a donation. Yes, this is to raise more money for disaster relief and with a new goal of $50,000 I hope that all our readers will at least put a little bit towards this massive goal. I look forward to this so far they have a great line-up ready with a number of big guests and I am sure that more will be announced as we get closer to the event. I hope that all of you follow this group and at least catch a little of this fantastic event. I will be sure to talk about this afterwards and if by some chance any of us end up in this I will be sure to make you know either with a post or via with Twitter feed.
