Giant Robot at Kokoro Craft Affair
We don’t “table” often at events except Comic Con. Yet the annual Kokoro Craft Affair at JANM is a perfect combination of community, fundraising and family. It’s run by the volunteers and it’s estimated that a 1000 people came through. Vendors spotted the lobby and hall, MC’s made raffle announcements and Lomo Arigato truck set up outside. We’re visited by the volunteers, staffers, many who are now old friends and faces that make us want to be the best GR we can be. The better we are, the better the museum is – even if it’s just a tiny speck of improvement. When Museum head Dr. Greg Kimura came by and said, “well, it’s not quite Comic-Con…” I’m thinking it’s more than Comic-Con.
