rainbow refugee - $3000
From their website: “Founded in 2000, Rainbow Refugee is a Vancouver based community group that supports people seeking refugee protection in Canada because of persecution based on sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression (SOGIE) or HIV status.”
We were blown away by the generosity of earpers at our 2018 Con when we auctioned off a signed Wynonna Earp script (donated by the wonderful Seven24 Films) and it raised a whopping $3000 single donation for Rainbow Refugee.

Toronto Humane Society - $15,000
The Toronto Humane Society (THS) is an animal welfare organization that has been around since 1887. They strive to help as many animals as they can and offer many programs to assist animals and families in need. In an effort to reduce overpopulation and unwanted litters, the THS advocates that animals be Spayed and Neutered; every cat and dog that enters the THS is Spayed or Neutered prior to adoption. In an effort to reduce the number of animals that enter the shelter system, the THS also offer public Spay and Neuter appointments.
The $15,000 from EH Con Canada will help provide about 40 dog spay/neuters and about 94 cat surgeries!That means we helped prevent at least 134 unwanted litters and potentially prevented over 500 animals from entering the shelter system!
