Just a quick miniature roundup for some anime freebies and bargains.
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?
To the deals! (more…)

For some, it’s the last day of summer vacation. For others, it’s the last day off until November. And for you non-American readers, it’s a random Monday. Either way, take a moment to remember all the hard-working men and women that have helped improve working conditions all across the globe.
And on to the deals! Some good deals end today, so check them out! (more…)
“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

Celebrate Mountain Day with Japan’s own Fujisan! Or if you’re not up to seeing Mount Fuji in person, perhaps you’ll settle for its depiction in an anime or manga?
To all my friends out there, happy International Day of Friendship!
And no one sings about friendship better than Umi:
“People who have real dreams
Are so dazzling that they shine.
You’re so earnest that you end up getting hurt.
Yet you always pretend to be strong — that’s why I worry.
When you want to cry, cry! (At any time)
You don’t have to hold yourself back
Since I’ll always be here.
With a little with a little with a little help. When things are difficult, call for me.
With a little with a little with a little help. We’re friends, aren’t we? Don’t hold back
Do your best! I want to be your strength”
