JMoF and Charity
The furry/kemono genre we see today has taken shape in the form of illustrations, fursuits, music, and merchandise. It’s needless to say that our passion comes from the admiration and respect we have for the animals we take inspiration from.
As Japan’s first large scale furry/kemono convention, we want to send a positive message out to the rest of the community in order to continue the growth of our furry/kemono culture.
Hence, we happily announce that we at JMoF 2023 will conduct a charity event during JMoF for Toyohashi Zoo & Botanical Park (also known as Nonhoi Park). We hope to establish a connection between the furry/kemono fans and our host, Toyohashi City, by showing our gratitude to their endeavors to host, preserve, and educate the public about animals and plants.
All money earned from the raffle tickets, and part of registration fees will be donated to the charity. We are proud that this shared circle of friendships continues to expand with your support!
Toyohashi Zoo & Botanical Park
Toyohashi Zoo & Botanical Park is a prominent multi-complex facility located within Toyohashi City. It consists of four sections: a zoo, a botanical garden, an amusement park, and a natural museum. Currently Toyohashi Zoo rears lions, polar bears, penguins, chimpanzees, and other animals.
On April 2017, the zoo became a hot topic in Japan with its addition of servals, made popular from the hit game and anime “Kemono Friends”.
What Is Raffle?
This raffle is one way to collect money for the charity. Using the tickets given by donating, we’ll hold a drawing for each of the prizes we have offered.
For every 100 JPY donated, one ticket will be received. Please come out and show your support for the Toyohashi Zoo!
