Coming soon: inspired by Dogbomb, ALS advocates will join furries in the San Francisco Pride parade.
On this site, the Dogbomb tag is probably the most positive representation of the fandom. He raised awareness about Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and his impact with outsiders got a look with the latest story in May 2019: Dogbomb: praise for a furry hero – from the ALS Association, Orange County Chapter.
Fundraising in his honor includes walks, art and pins for sale. Grubbs Grizzly’s Good Furry Award just went to Dogbomb with a $1000 prize donated to charity. The energy keeps going with an art book in the works. According to his wishes, his likeness is free to use as long as proceeds are donated.
The amount of donations will likely be a sizeable chunk of ALL furry charity done this year, but who knows how high it is? Ask Dogbomb’s inner circle of friends who were entrusted to carry on his legacy. Last month I spoke to Trip E. Collie, who knows a lot about the total impact.
Twitter. Listen. I DEMAND more Dogbombs. No, I'm not talking about art, stickers, pins. We will need those as we keep the fight going to kick ALS squarely in the ass…
But what I'm talking about now is I want to see more of you acting like Dogbomb's. Do it. Now. I promise hugs.
