Animatic Con started in March of 2015 with the idea of delivering to the fandoms across the U.S. a convention that was fun, and had a higher purpose. After much consideration and discussion, we decided that we wanted to help raise funds for Autism, and with that we wanted to create a convention that welcomed people with limitations, and accommodate to their needs. Animatic Con has been raising funds since 2016 and donating to Families with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). With Families with ASD, we have ensured that funds raised go into the community to help provide the resources that they need.
Families with ASD is a Cincinnati based charity that is a 501c3 organization. They are responsible for putting on the Autism Expo which is held in Sharonville, Ohio each year. You can learn more about Families with ASD by visiting their website familieswithasd.org
