The totals are in and we will be donating a grand total of $16,061.77 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Thank you so much to everyone who donated and helping make this year’s auction the most successful to date!
This year the AnimeNEXT Charity Auction will be supporting childhood cancer research and our chosen charity is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (https://www.stjude.org/).
Currently, cancer is the leading cause of death from disease among children and adolescents in the United States1. In addition, a challenge in dealing with the issue of childhood cancer is that most causes are unknown. Due to its enormous impact and the little-known causes behind childhood cancer, the importance for funding research cannot be understated. All proceeds from the auction, and donations during the convention, will go towards this vital cause. We thank you for your support.
