Schedule & Guests Announced For Anime Fans Give Back 2 Japan

3 min read

With the one year anniversary coming up in just a few days, events are going on around the world and especially in Japan in regards to the disaster that happened there. One of the more interesting ones for anime fans is a twenty-four hour podcasting marathon with some of the best folks out there in the English speaking anime and manga community. I wanted to be a part of this as well, but my Bell’s Palsy and inability to speak for more than a few minutes at a time made it hard since the last thing you need to hear is me slurring my way around. But we do encourage everyone to take time to check it out and to help raise money to help as there’s still an incredible amount of work to be done there.

NEW YORK, NY – March 8th, 2012 – The anime community came together one year ago and raised over $30,000 to support the people of Japan in their time of need. This year the anime community is coming together again for a second “Anime Fans Give Back” marathon to raise awareness for the victims of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. We will be running a 24-hour podcasting marathon live on UStream and on the website (http://animefansgiveback.com) starting March 10th at 5:00PM EST and running through 6:00PM EST on March 11th. We are looking to raise over $20,000 for a $50,000 total over the last year through GlobalGiving (http://globalgiving.org) for those in Japan. The event begins this Saturday, March 10th, at 5:00PM Eastern Time.
