Our Huge Charity Effort This Year!
One of SoDak Con's amazing attendees (Eileen Mullican) approached us to an amazing thing. The effort is called Can Town, which is inspired by the Homestuck fandom. It is going to be amazing and we are involving all fandoms! This is how it works. Through out the weekend you can donate to Can Town, which will have it's own page here on the website. Each Fandom has a section that is for donations. Through out the weekend there will be rounds for attendees to nominate a Mayor of Can Town, and on Sunday the Mayor and whoever that want to help will take the donated items and create/build a town/castle out of them. Here are the fandoms and their charities that will be donating to. All info on what those charities need will be listed on Can Town's page. Every person that donates four or more items will receive $10 off of 2015's preregistration!
Can Town- Donate canned and non-perishable food for the local Feed South Dakota branch.
The Doctor's Library- Doctor Who Fandom's book donations are for charities that bring books those who don't get a chance at books.
Rarity's Generosity- Inspired by My Little Pony's Rarity this charity is for Project Warmth. Cosplayers bring your fabric scraps and pieces and donate them so they can be made into quilts for families that have lost homes, have suffered a loss or have a family member with cancer.
The Red Butterfly's Refuge- This is inspired by the anime Fruits Basket. Donate things for W.A.V.I to help families and spouses that have escaped abusive homes.
