Vampire Support’s Current Mission:
Raise awareness about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico by putting together miscellaneous projects to encourage the world's youth to speak up for causes they believe in. All proceeds will go towards helping with the relief efforts. The vampire phenomenon has many fandoms and we believe every one of them can come together in a collaborative effort to help out with the Gulf crisis.

Q: How will we bid on the items?
A: There will be a special charity auction hosted on eBay. 

Q: When is the auction?
A: The date for the auction is TBA. As soon as a date is set we promise to let everyone know right away.


Q: Where is the money raised from the auction going?

Q: Why did you change donations from going to Gulfaid.org to NWF?
A: The donations for the t-shirts are going to continue to be given to Gulf Aid. We decided that expanding charities and helping more than one organization was the better route to take. NWF is strictly animals and it was an agreed decision to choose a charity that was designed for one cause.
