We sold nearly every one of our 2016 T-shirts, thanks to the amazing artwork contributed by our honored guest Tracy Butler.  We had a number of 2015 shirts and a few 2014 shirts that were destined for our Con Store next year, but with the catastrophic flooding that has occurred in North Carolina due to Hurricane Matthew, the Board of Directors felt that it would be more appropriate to donate our remaining stock of shirts to disaster relief efforts there.  Thus, our full stock of prior-year shirts has been delivered to local Emergency Services representatives for distribution in the hardest-hit areas.

Please accept our apologies if you were hoping to purchase one of our earlier shirts at the next convention.  We believe, however, that our attendees will understand our desire to help out those who have lost everything to the floodwaters.

What a great and noble decision to make!  I think it was a wonderful idea to donate those t-shirts to those affected by Hurricane Matthew.  Classy as always!  Highfive

*Adds this to list of why furries are Grand* 

 

I dunno.. I can't imagine many fandoms being okay with their 'merch' being given away. Even for a noble cause.*

Yes! This is very good PR. I'm sure the people affected by Hurricane Matthew will be very grateful for these shirts! This definitely helps shed a positive light on the fandom!

Great, wise, noble, selfless... These are some of the words that come to my mind when I describe the Anthrocon Board of Directors and their decision to help those with immeasurable, but heartbreaking losses from the devastation left in Hurricane Matthew's wake.

My heart goes out to all of those affected by Hurricane Matthew. A t-shirt may not seem like much at first, but to those who may receive the t-shirts of conventions past, it can be their beacon of hope.

Agree one hundred percent that this was absolutely the Right Thing to Do.  This fandom is all about having fun with our hobby, but what happened in NC was Real Life, hitting a lot of people hard, and making the simple sacrifice of unsold shirts to folks who've lost so much really puts it all in perspective.  Plus, anyone who's been in the fandom for awhile is only too well aware that our eccentric community is full of wonderful, caring, generous individuals who will often go the extra mile to help those who need it, and this is just another example of that.  Good work, Kage/Directors!

Well I'm understandably disappointed, I had hoped to purchase one as a Christmas gift, my son's girlfriend is a huge fan of Tracy Butler's.  But I certainly can't yell about a humanitarian gesture.
