Talking Charity Drive! I Need Your Help!

Hi everyone! My name is stinkulousreddous, and I cosplay as Seto Kaiba from Yu-Gi-Oh, all over the place. I've made a bunch of videos where I pretend to be Seto Kaiba, the news reporter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRwB2PKwhFA ; and, taken a bunch of pictures and just have... essentially, way too much energy and optimism to actually be Seto Kaiba. Heheheh.


Anyway, I need everyone's help! :O

My mom is working with a charity at the high school where she teaches. A pastor who is trying to rebuild schools in Haiti: http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b1...718_093143.jpg after the earthquake six months ago is desperate for school supplies: merely, regular three-ring or pocket folders, pencil pouches, binders, pencils (mechanical or not), rulers, markers, crayons, colored pencils, calculators, pens, glue, composition books, notepads, highlighters, printer paper, loose-leaf paper, white-out, spiral notebooks- you name it; if you use it in a classroom, this man wants to ship it overseas to the schools that he’s helping fund. These schoolchildren, he says, literally have nothing- they want wholly to be able to go back to school, but the schools can’t provide any materials for them, and they have no means of getting materials, themselves.


So, I ask bequest of all of my con-going home dawgs: do you guys have any extra school supplies lying around that you would be willing to bring to Metrocon and give to me? I don’t care if the items are used, as long as they’re still in pretty good shape (like, pencils can be sharpened, but still be a fairly large, functional size, or whatever- these people aren’t picky, you know; my mom’s partner is very grateful for anything).


Anyone who brings me anything at Metrocon in return will receive:


-----------A BAGGIE THAT CONTAINS A HOME-MADE BROWNIE. --------------


Trust me: you want this. My homemade brownies have a 100% satisfaction rate with a 99.99% chance of you wanting another one. In high school, they were solely responsible for me being able to attract three of the boys that I dated (that’s a big deal: I’m exceedingly insufferable in relationships; and, normally, boys don’t come within a 50-mile radius of me); since then, I have developed tons of recipes full of candies and mints and chocolate chips and, essentially, anything that you can possibly dream up when it comes to baked goods. I generally fill even the space between the atoms that make up my brownies with more chocolate. A packet of loose-leaf paper is a tiny price to pay for a Legendary Happy-Reporter-Kaiba Brownie.


I've given brownies to legendary people like LittleKuriboh: http://stinkulousreddous.deviantart....ents-162259938 and often use them in my cosplaying skits: http://stinkulousreddous.deviantart....Eyes-167390873 BELIEVE IT. THEY'RE GOOD. THIS IS WHERE MY KAIBA EGO TRULY SHINES, YO.


I greatly appreciate any help that you guys are willing to give. I hope you know what wonderful things you would be doing for the futures of these children who need the hope and encouragement. I’m more than thrilled to bake rewards for you all, too; I hope that you poor, starving, don’t-have-enough-time-or-money-to-eat-during-the-convention-weekend congoers enjoy my brownies at least a third as much as these children will enjoy your pencils and folders.

-------------------------
EDIT:

I seem to be getting a lot of the same question, and I think it'll be helpful for me to mention this here too: "Where can I find you, to give you things?" XDDDDD


Even though I don't really know where I'll be, when, specifically, I will be very.easy.to.find. I'll be with my Blue-Eyes White Dragon the entire time; and, he's ...um, seven feet tall, covered in blinding white foam, and has wings with a span of about seven feet. So, our group will be eeeeeeeasy to spot in the dealer's room/in panels/while we're out by the river taking pictures.


I'll be wearing my Seto Kaiba big white trench coat. I'll have a duel disk and a big metal briefcase at all times. I may for a little while be the blue manga version of Priest Seto (but, even then, I'll still be with my giant Blue-Eyes). I'll always have brownies with me, so as soon as you see me, if you have stuff for me, it's the right time to make the exchange!


I am amazed by how many of you are kind enough to be willing to bring supplies for my mom's charity. Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuu.

I might be able to find something to bring. Lord knows I have enough binders lying around and I might be able to get some other stuff too when I go to WalMart for some cord.

Same here! I know there a ton of brand new stuff lying around our house (my dad's a packrat and buys EVERYTHING in bulk), so I'll be happy to bring some of it. Is there any specific place you'll be at the con so we can find you easier, or will you just be roaming around? xD

Yaaaay! I'm going to be in a billion places so I can't really predict my movements, but I'll be at the convention center all day, all three days- and, I'll actually be very very easy to spot: I'll be with my Blue-Eyes White Dragon the entire time. That boy is- I'm not kidding- seven feet tall and covered with white foam and seven-foot-wide wings.
