In the spirit of our 2017 theme of "Under the Sea," Zenkaikon has chosen to support the Ocean Conservancy as our official charity for Zenkaikon 2017!
Ocean Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) organization working with their supporters to protect the ocean from today’s greatest global challenges. Together, they create science-based solutions for a healthy ocean, and the wildlife and communities that depend on it. They focus on a number of widely important ocean issues, such as sustainable fisheries, ocean acidification, marine debris and Arctic and Gulf health. For more than four decades, they have supported efforts that benefit wildlife and habitats, as well as the people who depend on the ocean for food, jobs and recreation.
On Sunday of the convention, Zenkaikon will be holding its third annual Charity Auction, hosted by Zenkaikon 2017 guest Uncle Yo. 100% of funds raised at the auction will be donated to Ocean Conservancy. If you are interested in donating an item to our auction, please complete our donation form by April 21, 2017.
We will also be collecting monetary donations at our merchandise booth, with donors who contribute $3 or more receiving a "Zenkaikon 2017" button.
We hope you will join us in making a difference for our ocean.
