I’m sure a lot of T&B fans have heard of the hardships that Galiko of Chuu Translations and Red String Productions has been going through. Just in case though, here is a short summary – In addition to being a wonderful fan, Galiko is a professional cat breeder. Over the last few weeks, she has lost four kittens destined to new homes due to tainted Blue Buffalo Cat Food and several other of her cats are still recovering. She has spent thousands of dollars and many sleepless nights doing everything possible to save these kittens. Even after all of her hard work, she’s still had customers request their normally non-refundable deposits back. All of this going on as she’s trying to find a new home for herself and her cats.
As Galiko has previously headed donation drives to help other fans in need – most notably Beardorado – there has been an enormous outpouring of support for her from the fandom with writers, artists, and crafters stepping up to help. And I’m very happy to be adding in my own support.
Followers may remember my dual-color Tiger & Bunny symbol bookmarks from the Chocobo & Bunny give-away earlier this year. I’m making them available for purchase for the first time with all proceeds going directly to help Galiko and her cats. So here’s the break-down -
Bookmarks are $5 each.
US shipping is $2.50 for one, $3.25 for two.
International shipping is $3.60 for one, $4.70 for two.
Paypal fees are built into the shipping prices.
Additionally, I’m more than willing to offer any of my other pieces of T&B fan merchandise to this cause. Feel free to ask me!
My ask box is open and currently even accepting Anon submissions but best way to reach me is via E-mail – firstname.lastname@example.org
Even if you can’t afford to commission me or the other amazing people who have stepped up to help Galiko, I ask that you help by signal boosting for her. Every little bit helps right now.
