Listen Up, Everyone: Dylan Needs Help.

Dylan, aka “Free Hugs Guy” is basically the mascot of Leakycon.  As seen above, he’s sort of everywhere.  He matters.  He is essential to Leakycon (and I say this going to Leaky my fourth year this year and having never been to a con that didn’t have Dylan, let’s not start now).

Dylan does free hugs most days of the con, but also spends an entire day doing $1 Hugs to benefit This Star Won’t Go Out, a foundation started in honor of Esther Earl and near and dear to Leaky’s heart.  With this year’s con falling on Esther Day, we can’t very well have a con without Dylan, who does more than most of us to spread Esther’s message of love and happiness and community.

Dylan is working on a fundraiser to get to Leakycon this year, and if you can, donate to that here.

More importantly, Dylan is looking for help actually getting to Leakycon.  If you or anyone you know is leaving from, passing through, or can otherwise pick someone up from the St. Louis area, please get in contact with me so I can let Dylan know.  He could really use a ride to help ensure he can get to the con.  I will personally vouch for Dylan being a good dude, as will many other people, and I’m sure he’d be more than happy to answer questions and concerns if you need him to.
