【副本】《挖掘正量月报》—— 七月毛兽慈善及正量新闻

南非毛兽网展Fursaverance 经过许多惊天动地的兽展之后,南非展South Afrifur当然也不能落后了。他们自发组织了Fursaverance(本地网展),并为慈善事业筹集了不少资金,至于细节,我想他们自己会解释的最好,艾维克·沃尔夫(Ivic Wulfe),过来吧! 各位好!我是从Fursaverance报道的艾维克·沃尔夫。 南非兽圈决定了,尽管他们的兽展South Afrifur被取消了,他们需要创造一个让毛兽们在任何地方都能享受的空间。考虑到这点,他们就开始工作了,以筹集善款为目标。 所以后来,我、Valerian、Sudo、Collie、Iron Wolf Tempest和Coyote Animosis联合起来创建了一个名为Fursaverance的空间,这是一个在线兽展,他们希望(本展)能够获得使其不仅仅成为一个 “一锤定音 “,而是为毛兽们创造不同让他们联合起来的渠道的牵引力。 该展的活动由D&D游戏玩法、珐琅艺术演示、直播演示、角色创建工作室、音乐套装、小问答、桌面模拟sim博览会、Jackbox游戏、三维建模教程、艺术直播和各种艺术家演示、Minecraft展示、以及和Ash Coyote的采访组成。所有这些活动都被录制或直播,可重看。 当然,这首先是一场慈善活动,它超出了我们自己的预算。观众中有来自南非,美国的奥马哈团体,甚至还有来自肯尼亚和欧洲的毛兽们。我们已经为Husky Rescue在(听不清)筹集了1150美元,他们是个我们已经支持两年的一个慈善组织。很高兴知道我们的捐款是有意义的。 艾维克·沃尔夫(Ivic Wulfe), 南非展SAFC主席,Fursaverance其中举办者 Fursona Pins 兽圈最大的收藏品制造商Fursona Pins上个月推出了一个特殊的献给Black Lives Matter的别针,这些正在热卖当中。到目前为止,他们已卖出超过1,100枚徽章,及捐赠了16,080美元给这项事业。 Peacewolf 在美国俄克拉荷马州,Peacewolf正在制作精美的兽装。但你知不知道,每卖出一件兽装,有一小部分将会被捐给俄克拉荷马州当地的慈善机构Safari Sanctuary吗? 这是一个为被丢弃的外来动物提供庇护的组织,其中许多动物之前都被当作宠物饲养。除了这项崇高的事业,他们还通过他们的 “Zoo2You “计划,教育人们照顾异国野生动物的困难,帮助防止将来需要救助的动物。Peacewolf也曾亲自到他们的场所参观,看到那里的动物都很可爱、健康和快乐。到目前为止,Peacewolf已经捐赠了760美元,随着每件兽装的售出,这个筹款数字还会增加。 帮助小贝和小塔 墨西哥坦皮科市的意思是 “水獭的地方”。不幸的是,由于城市化和污染,这些小动物正面临着灭绝的危险。为了帮助这些水獭,COBEA的环境教育者和救助者们在该地区建立了一个动物救助中心,他们正在建造一个康复栖息地,让小水獭在那里学习如何游好泳,如何获得食物。 遗憾的是,他们并没有得到政府的帮助,阿尔米塔决定举行一次抽奖活动。如果你向他们捐款,你不仅能得到一张可爱的画,还能帮助COBEA的两位新居民:小水獭Bey和Tar。在我说话的时候,300美元的初始目标已经过去了。不过,以Almita的高超技艺,我并不感到惊讶。 好兽奖2020(Good Furry Award) Ask … Continue reading 【副本】《挖掘正量月报》—— 七月毛兽慈善及正量新闻

疫情与兽圈:兽展的取消助长了在线毛兽活动趋势

English article: /2020/07/01/covid-19-and-furries-june-furcon-cancellations-fuel-trend-for-online-furry-events/ 在这个月里,由于新冠病毒继续发展,来自美洲、欧洲和亚洲的12个兽展被取消并推迟到明年。 加拿大:Canfurence 美国:Golden State Fur Con、Denfur、Furrydelphia、Western PA Furry Weekend、Furry Migration、Furvana 俄罗斯:Rusfurence 英国:Furcation 奥德利:Golden Leaves Con 中国大陆:Fuzzy Oasis Party(绿洲派对) 澳大利亚:West Aussie Frenzy 全球目前(于七月二日)有73个被取消,4个被推迟,23个未影响。 随着越来越多的兽展取消,线上毛兽活动趋势则是日渐增加。此前我们已经看到了Down Home Furcon和Furality Online Xperience等线上兽展,这些展子们吸引了许多毛兽们的好奇心,并创造了一种奇特又独特的体验。 与实际兽展比较,虽然像这样的在线活动缺乏了实际体验,这仍不会限制他们继续为社会做出回馈和贡献。此外,这些活动在互联网上直播的事实也意味着它们在举办方面变得灵活——可以从油管或Twitch等等平台上直播,或到像Minecraft服务器等等的东西上举办个大规模活动。 其实,上周末刚刚举办了这样的一个线上活动;Fursaverance,南非首个由当地毛兽们主办的线上兽展。由6月27日起,为期两天在油管举办,该展包含了各种从创意研讨会到如何直播和玩D&D等游戏的教程。他们总共向慈善伙伴Husky Rescue捐赠了1150美元,比预测的100美元增加了1150%。 你可以期待更多即将到来的线上活动,以下是其中一些: Fuzzy Omegle Weekends, 每周六和周日,Omegle举行。 NONSTOPWORLD,7月18至19日,Minecraft上举办的兽展。 Furvana,今年取消后搬到网上举办小聚会,9月18日在Discord上线 … Continue reading 疫情与兽圈:兽展的取消助长了在线毛兽活动趋势

A pawsitive goal reached: US$17,004 raised for EF2020 charity partner

Just recently, a fundraiser organised by the charity wing of European furcon Eurofurence has raised US$8,502, which was then matched 1:1 by LinkedIn to obtain the final amount of US$17,004. This was done to support their 2020 charity Cheetah Preservation Foundation in the face of them facing financial difficulties due to COVID-19 and their country South Africa’s lockdown. But one question to wonder, if the virus shows no signs of slowing down as of now, will the sum be enough to sustain the foundation through this period?
