Charity Auctions by U.S. Anime Firms, Cast Ending Soon
posted on by Egan Loo
The charity auctions of 11 items donated by the American anime industry and signed by American anime voice actors are ending within the next two hours. The effort supports a seven-year-old boy named Ian Hoy who is recuperating from a traffic accident at a pedestrian sidewalk that had left him in a coma with traumatic brain injury. 100% of the proceeds go directly to the fund for Hoy, whose family is friends with longtime American voice actress Tiffany Grant. FUNimation Entertainment, New Generation Pictures, and Grant donated the following 11 items on auction:
