Charity We are so very excited to partner with the Atlanta Affiliate of the American Heart Association as our 2019 official charity. This year’s charity selection is a very personal one, done in the honor of our Comics Director, Thom Trainor, who lost his battle with heart disease in July of 2018. Dragon Con will again match dollar for dollar, up to $100,000, any money raised for this charity at the 2019 convention.

We would love to show how much HEART our fans have by sending the total match to AHA!

The American Heart Association’s mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives and a catalyst to achieving maximum impact in equitable health and well-being. Around the globe and in the U.S., the American Heart Association helps all populations address overall health and well-being. Anchored in cardiovascular and brain health, they focus on breakthroughs in science and technology, changes in systems and policy, and engaging with individuals to transform communities.

To learn more about the American Heart Association, visit https://www.heart.org/en/affiliates/georgia/atlanta.

Each guest agreement requests two donations to our Charity Auction. This is your friendly reminder that YOU have the opportunity to make a difference and help us raise money for a great cause. We get a lot of questions on what to donate, so we are happy to provide some ideas to help you: autographed headshots from our Walk of Fame Guests, any show memorabilia they may own (this has brought in *huge* dollars in past auctions), signed artwork, autographed sides (episode notes from shows), autographed scripts, or autographed movie or television promo posters. Want to give something personal that fans would go wild for? Try auctioning off a meal with a fan while at the show. For the authors out there, signed books certainly work, but if you prefer a more creative approach, we’ve had great success auctioning off Tuckerizations.

Items can be dropped off in VIP Badge Pick Up or in the Charity Auction booth at the Marriott.

Tell Your Story. It’s Your Write!
