Anime Expo Charity Auction Proceeds to 9/11 charities

posted on 2002-06-04 10:23 EDT
Anime Expo has selected a number of 9/11 charities and are looking to narrow the filed to a final 1 or 2 organizations to give the proceeds of their charity auction to.

From Mike Tatsugawa of Anime Expo

We have looked through over 200 charities to try to determine the best cause to donate the proceeds of the SPJA 9/11 Charity Auction. We have narrowed down the candidates to a select eight. We have cleared these organizations with the Better Business Bureau to insure their status as a legitimate aid organization for the victims of 9/11. Because I'm not a local from the New York area, any comments on these charities is extremely welcome while we talk to these organizations to get it down to one or two recipients.
