AOD has a tradition of raising money for charity through its Charity Auctions. Over the last several years, our donors have provided consoles, posters, artwork, video games, music, autographs, recordings, and coaching sessions, all with the intent of helping out our charitable causes.

Featured Items

This is a special branded Xbox 360, in the Crunchyroll design and color scheme. The console itself is in pristine condition, with the box only opened once for this particular photo. The console itself has brand new. Only three of these special 360's exist & you have a chance to own one of them! Because these were only created in a limited quantity, they are extremely rare to even see available for auction, but you will be able to bid on this at AOD.
