EXPIRED 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.

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…)
