Since Emru began to tell people about his situation and that of others, there has been an enormous amount of support in the anime and science fiction convention community. Many conventions have a history of fundraising for good causes, whether it is a guest of honour's fee being given to a good cause, a blood drive, a charity auction or an ancillary party. I and my friends were too busy raising awareness at Eastercon, Anime North and more recently Otakuthon to really post about it. As Anticipation has campaigned for people to register as members of the 2009 World Science Fiction Convention in Montreal, the chair and secretary have also encouraged people to register as stem cell donors.

However, I am going to try harder to let people know when and where we or our materials will be, because every person and organization who has helped should be commended. They've been vital to getting the word out about this important message that can benefit many people right now and in the future.

You can find our flyers this weekend at Diversicon, August 1-3. The science fiction convention is committed to fan, media and cultural diversity, and located in Minneapolis, MN. One of the most culturally diverse cities in the United States, Minneapolis is also the home of the National Marrow Donor Program.

You can get our flyers here. If you will have flyers in your registration pack or promotional table of a convention, festival or conference, let us know in advance and we will try to inform others so they can keep an eye out for them.
