TFcon Toronto Raised Over $10,000 in Charity for Make-a-Wish Canada
Congrats to the folks at TFcon Toronto who raised $10,417.40 for Make-a-Wish Canada at their charity auction over the weekend! I love seeing when the Transformers fan community can come together and help improve the lives of children, and am always really proud to see when there’s a real difference being made in the world. As a sign of appreciation, I won’t even make a joke about whether or not that dollar amount is in Canadian or “real money!” Good work, Canucks! Read on for the link to the full announcement.

TFcon Update featuring the charity auction total.
TFcon is very proud to announce that our 2015 charity auction was able to raise $10417.40 for Make-A-Wish® Canada. We are very proud of everyone in our community that contributed to make this amazing feat happen.
Make-A-Wish® Canada creates magical moments for children between the ages of 3 and 17, living with life threatening medical conditions, through granting a child’s one true wish. Make-A-Wish® strives to create hope, strength and joy by giving a child a much needed respite from being sick, allowing them to experience the wholesome enjoyment of just being a “kid” again.
Because the entire family experiences the diagnoses, treatment and day-to-day challenges of caring for a child with an illness, the entire family is included in the wish experience. Make-A-Wish® likes to make sure their families do not have to lift a finger or spend a dime. So if you think of the cost of sending a family of 4 to Disney for a week from the car that picks them up to park activities, souvenirs as well as food and medical insurance the average cost of a wish is $10,000. So that means, because of the TFcon Toronto 2015 charity auction a child will have their wish come true!
