[gif of a chubby light-skinned man with a Mohawk-like hairstyle dancing sensually. He is wearing jeans and a black tank top. He is confidently smiling while singing along to the song he’s dancing to. As part of his routine, he moves his hips side-to-side, pulls in his shirt to reveal his chest, and glides his hands over his body.]I wanna dance now

AND AND AND! Look how happy that kid is petting the soft, big puppy! You can raise all the money in the world, but that kid will NEVER forget being able to pet the big puppy. THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is why I stay a furry, despite all the negative connotations of the group. And yes, that money for charity, it’s amazing stuff.
Thought it was interesting to reblog all these listed charities. I was wondering which specific ones conventions had donated to.
This makes me happy.
Cute suit, cute moment, great cause, great fandom
It’s worth noting that the donations listed up there came from just one (Further Confusion) of the great multitude of conventions spread across the US and if I’m not mistaken, they -all- donate to charities.
People already talked about the charities for kids and animals an’ all that so I’m just gonna give a little commentary on the suit: THAT is the first fursuit that I had to just gush over. It’s also one of the earliest pictures I saw on FA that I really liked when at the time I mostly used the site to look for Jirris’s and Hoodah’s work. It’s so damn fluffy, and pretty, and when I first saw it I thought it was really a huge ass giant dog and not a fursuit. The picture for that thing has got to be like, what, six, maybe seven years old or so by now? I do hope it’s still in good condition.
