As geeks, our fictional worlds are filled with brightly-colored heroes that swoop in to save the day when tragedy strikes. However, in this reality it’s up to us to lend a helping hand to those affected by natural disasters and circumstance. Our friends at Kotobukiya, makers of some of the finest comic and film-based statues around, are stepping up (with your help) to send some aid to the victims of the recent tragedy in Japan.
Here’s all the info and links for Kotobukiya’s planned charity auctions:
On March 11th 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake struck near the East Coast of Honshu, the largest quake in Japan’s recorded history. Followed shortly thereafter by a series of ravenous tsunami waves, this catastrophe is expected to rank amongst the costliest of natural disasters with a vast number of people displaced from their homes and separated from their loved ones.
To assist in emergency relief efforts, Kotobukiya will be offering a series of charitable eBay auctions during the month of March. A selection of collectible items will be made available for bidding, many of which have been graciously signed by top industry talents. 100% of all final auction proceeds will go to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund spearheaded by GlobalGiving.
With your support we can make a difference in the recovery process!
