AnimeIowa would like to announce the total of its charity drive for this year’s convention! We raised $3,000 for the We Heart Japan charity! We Heart Japan is ran by voice actress Stephanie Sheh, translator Satsuki Yamashita, comic book artist Pinguino Kolb, Japanese film promoter Rhona Medina and Steve Yun who works at Harmony Gold on Robotech and Macross. AnimeIowa gladly donates the funds we raised to this organization, whose proceeds go to relief efforts for the areas effected by the March 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami. Check them out at weheartjapan.com and feel free to keep on donating! AnimeIowa would like to give the greatest of thanks to all those who donated and wish the We Heart Japan charity the best of luck in their endeavors!

Our hearts go out to those in Japan affected by the recent Earthquake and Tsunami. Do you want to help Japan’s disaster relief efforts, but don’t have a lot of money? For a limited time, Crunchyroll is matching every dollar donated through its website. Find out more in the forum.
