Anime Detour Charity Auction has been a part of the Anime Detour culture since 2005. Every year we invite all guests of Anime Detour to come and participate in the Live Auction, which is hosted on the Sunday of the convention. We welcome you to come and bid on unique autographed and non-autographed items and be entertained from our variety of Guest of Honors.
Anime Detour would like to welcome our new partnership with NAMI Minnesota (National Alliance on Mental Health)! We are very excited to affiliate with this amazing non-profit organization! All proceeds from the charity live auction, silent auction and charity raffle will help continue their fight to help promote education, advocacy and support for families and individuals with mental illness.
For over 40 years, NAMI Minnesota has been dedicated to improving and promoting the development of programs and services for children and adults with mental illness and their families, as well as helping create a pathway for changing the stigma about mental illness. NAMI offers a multitude of classes and support groups for children, teens and adults. As well as, support groups and classes for those who are involved in the faith community, LGBTQ community and multicultural community, just to name a few.

If you or someone you know is in crisis and in need of immediate assistance, the following resources can help:
In a continuing effort, Anime Detour will be providing canisters around the convention to help the American Red Cross with the National Sound the Alarm/Home Fire Campaign. Also, if you wish to donate online please visit https://www.redcross.org/donate/donation.html/
Since 2014, the National Home Fire Campaign has saved 474 documented lives, prepared over 600,000 households, installed over 1,500,000 smoke alarms and helped educate the youth. By supporting the Home Fire Campaign, we enable the Red Cross to provide critical services to individuals and families (such as food, clothing, shelter and hope), as well as providing lifesaving tools and information to support fire prevention.
The American Red Cross provides support on all levels to Disaster Relief, Health and Safety, Service to the Armed Forces, International Services and Blood Services. The American Red Cross is the premier emergency preparedness and response organization who are powered by volunteers and the generosity of donors like you!
