Immortal Con 2015 is an amazing Anime and Fantasy Convention created by Elsie Ginsberg not only to share your “super human spirit” but to also raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer as well as Metastatic Cancer. This is a convention with a cause and it is Mrs. Ginsberg’s way of “starting the reach with others to spread hope through positive thought, share personal experiences and hardships, support groups” as the tickets you purchase to attend the Immortal Con Convention also donates dollars, as well as money from the vendor purchases to the Stony Brook Breast Cancer Center to help patients directly. Elsie Ginsberg has done a remarkable job with this fundraiser as she too is fighting this menacing disease but still finds the strength and selflessness to help others.
Ginsberg’s creativity has brought the wonderful, colorful world of the Anime’ characters to life for such a beautiful cause, taking that pain and redirecting it into something positive, showing colors in the characters with glimmers of hope for patients and their families because of one special lady whose caring runs deep for those who suffer the pain as herself.
Immortal con Anime is most definitely the “Convention for a Cause” bringing Anime and Fantasy worlds clashing brightly together. This is event is a light hearted anime and fantasy environment that is meant to take away the burden of gloom that unfortunately with this disease.
As Elsie Ginsberg puts it; “No one can nor should go through a cancer battle alone. This event is not claiming to save the world but instead hoping to possibly save a life one at a time or lend a healing/helping hand to someone who may feel alone while we roam in delightful costumes, enjoy some music, vendors, panels and more at ImmortalConLI”. “Together we are invincible”
There will be special events, guests, vendors, panels, prizes and so much to do! “We will all wear our gear of strength and cheer on for LIFE as we enjoy panels to both entertain as well as educate, meet special guests, take in a game or 2, win a costume contest, capture memories with all the pics to be taken with friends, shop the dealer’s floor, and most importantly take with you all the empowering elements the event will offer so that you can face tomorrow like an IMMORTAL.”
This is a fantastic event with an amazing heart at the core of its creation. Let’s do what we can right now, to help fight the cause, and help out all that we can right now. You never know when this affliction with strike someone you know, a family or friend heaven forbid or even yourself. You would not want to go through this alone; thinking no one in the world cared or even knows how horrible it is. Well, there are people that care, and are fighting every day to make a difference, one life at a time! Thank you Elsie Ginsberg you are an incredible lady!
