We were so fortunate to have a table at Comic Con and had a wonderful time meeting so many amazing people. Lots of cool and great ideas were discussed to improve the community.
We met a woman who talked to us about small homes to help individuals living on the streets. These are small houses that can be moved around and look nice in any section of a city. We heard from police officers, EMS personnel, medical professionals, and more about the lack of resources and knowledge to help individuals in crisis or who have a mental illness. Our CARE Cards were on display and we were able to get a bunch of people cards to help them in their daily lives.
We were able to raise $1123 for our Helping Hands Cruiser Bag program! Amazing people competed in our pick a brain challenge and donated to our charity. Thank you all who helped out. Great businesses that were present at the convention donated items for our raffle drawing. Please check out the Helping Hand page for links to these great businesses.
There were amazing people at Comic Con and if you have never been to one I suggest everyone attend their local Comic Con. The costumes were amazing and the fans are like none other.
I cannot express enough how thankful I am for everyone who helped us. The community came together to help others who are in need.
