We here at Distortion Productions are so proud to announce that this coming December, Electronic Saviors will make donations to a few charities for the grand total of $15K. The charities include The Medical and Health Sciences Foundation at the University of Pittsburgh c/o Dr. David Medich. Most of you know him as the guy who performed the surgery to remove the cancer of Jim Semonik. He is the head of the colorectal cancer dept at Pitt. The next charity is called Cap For Kids (http://www.capforkids.org/). This charity helps kids with cancer. People cosplay as superheroes and visit kids affected by the disease.
Finally, going forward, Electronic Saviors will be expanding it’s focus and will include mental health/suicide prevention. A donation to Darkest Before Dawn (http://www.db4d.org/) is on deck for this. Darkest before dawn focuses on Suicide Prevention for the workers of the nightlife industry who suffer from depression.

Vol 4/Respect the Prime-$12,000
Vol 5/Respect the Prime-$15,000

Much Love and Respect,
Sir Jim Semonik, OMS and Chase Dudley
