If you want to help Texans and Louisianans devastated by Harvey, please join us this weekend at San Japan. San Japan has made it easy to help with multiple ways to contribute: 1. If you are healthy and able to donate blood, please consider the Blood Drive. 2. San Japan Cares will be collecting nonperishable food, baby food, hygiene items, flashlights, batteries, cleaning supplies, and pet supplies during the convention. If you have extra helpful supplies around your home, please drop them off at the "San Japan Cares" booth. 3. The San Japan Charity Auction will raise money for 2017's charity (disABILITYsa) AND San Japan will match up to $2500 in contributions to disaster relief efforts. The Texas con community has a lot of love and incredible strength. Let's unite this weekend and pledge to help; however we can!

We want to reach out to our community tonight and sincerely apologize to you all. We realized too late that our scheduled post about hotels was incredibly insensitive to the current disaster happening in our state and the thousands of people in need of rescue or being displaced from their homes. Our hearts, well wishes, and prayers go out to everyone affected. Many of our own staff, friends, and families are also being impacted by this disaster and in the following days we encourage everyone to stick together and support one another. We care deeply for those affected and are genuinely sorry for the tone deaf post we made earlier today. This is a time for us to be united as a community in focused support of those who need us. Sincerely, The A-Kon Executive Team

Neko Squared is a group of dedicated performers who present interactive escape rooms, theater and games to conventions, such as Project A-kon, as well as independent events. Currently we are looking for more actors and actresses to perform alongside our current cast for our third year in a row! We will be meeting together for in-person rehearsals and fun get-togethers as well as web rehearsals leading up to each performance date. In addition to this there will be online challenges, quizzes, online events, and updates to keep you involved! To audition please answer the following questions in video format (avi, wmv, mpg and mp4 files only please) as well as present your chosen monologue (of 1-2 minutes in length) and e-mail them to email@example.com by August 22nd, 2017. 1. Introduce yourself! 2. Are you 18 years old or over? 3. Which city and state are you located in? 4. Are you willing and able to travel to the DFW area for rehearsal and performances? 5. Please tell us a bit about your previous theater experience. 6. Do you have any interesting or unusual talents, speak any languages other than English, have any skills you would like to tell us about ? 7. Keep in mind that while a lot of fun Neko Squared requires dedication and effort so we would ask that during cons you will be performing with us that this will be your first priority. Do you agree and understand? 8. Do you understand that this is a volunteer position and therefore unpaid? 9. Please present your chosen monologue of 1-2 minutes in length. Break a leg!"
