Anime & Manga Deals: Global Handwashing Day Edition

Global Handwashing Day

It’s Global Handwashing Day. You might think of this as, well, an obvious thing to do, but when you have areas like Puerto Rico where currently 30 to 40% has no running water, handwashing is a premium. How incredibly sad that one of the easiest and most effective ways to prevent disease is unable to be done in places like Puerto Rico without potentially exposing yourself to contaminated waters.

On a side note, aren’t the mascots cute?

Anime & Manga Deals: October 2nd Edition

Peace

This was supposed to be dedicated to the victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and elsewhere, and I hope we don’t let the latest news make us neglect that almost the entire island is without power and over 50% of people don’t have drinking water. It’s National Child Health Day, and, unfortunately, children and adults are suffering. It’s also World Habitat Day, and many people are without homes.

But… I can’t even… 50+ dead, 400+ injured in a mass shooting in Las Vegas? Today is supposed to be the International Day of Non-Violence, and now we have the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Just go hug someone today. Your parents, your friends, your pets, someone. If you can read this, remember your blessings.

EXPIRED Anime & Manga Deals: National Day of Service and Remembrance Edition

Peace

Many of you probably associate today with the 2001 terrorists attacks and its observed holiday Patriot Day. But I feel it’s important to highlight the fact that volunteers and donations are sorely needed right now. Texas has been hit hard by Hurricane Harvey, Florida is now being hit by Hurricane Irma, and several islands in the Caribbean are just devastated. Many people have lost everything. Of course, there are still 9/11-related charities who need money for memorials and outreach program. Even if you’re in no position to donate money, please consider donating blood or even helping out in your local community.

Sorry for another soapbox opening. On to the deals! (more…)

And on to the deals! Some good deals end today, so check them out! (more…)

EXPIRED Anime & Manga Deals: World Humanitarian Day Edition

World Humanitarian Day

“Every year on World Humanitarian Day, we shine a spotlight on the millions of civilians around the world whose lives have been caught up in conflict. On this day we also take a moment to honour the brave health and aid workers who are targeted or obstructed as they set out to help people in need, and pay tribute to the government employees, members of civil society and representatives of international organizations and agencies who risk their lives to provide humanitarian aid and protection.” — UN Secretary-General, António Guterres

So if you save a few dollars this weekend, please consider donating to a charity of your choice, such as monies to help the victims of the Charlottesville and Barcelona terror attacks. And if you can’t donate money, donate time at a local organization or donate blood at a local blood drive. #lovenothate
