What is CausePlay? Cosplay to the next level?

Perhaps some of us might already be hearing the word "CausePlay," but what does it really mean?  Does it mean that people are playing about causes?  Does it mean that these are cosplayers wanted to show off or as one person said are rich kids in costume that wanted to feel that they are doing something good?

Well to understand this better, I first tried to search on Google for the word "Causeplay."  There are many meanings of Causeplay, one is about a company and states that, "CausePlay builds digital distribution and publishing platforms that deliver brand fueled analytics, content, promotions and advertising."  Another is about a digital gaming company who creates social games and partners with a charity whom they will donate part of the income from the game, "A revolution in social gaming has just arrived via a venture called CausePlay. CausePlay, LLC. a social gaming company, was founded on the idea that games can make a difference. "

Personally, I would rather define "CAUSEPLAY" as Cosplaying to the next level because it is cosplay for a cause.  It is not only about wearing your costume or organizing events for cosplayers but making a difference while doing those.  These includes joining charitable events, donating to charities, fund raising events, entertaining those in need and many more.

One of the first organization which I have seen do this in their activities is ToyCon.  They have this book drive in order to help a certain charity and I am very impressed by it.  When Naruto Cosplayers PH (NCPH) was organized in 2010, we came up with the idea of Cosplay for a Cause.  It is not an idea which the group has a sole right because helping other people should be owned and shared by all.

Later on, I think it is more proper to call it CAUSEPLAY rather than just Cosplay for a Cause.  Why?  It does rhyme with what many Filipinos are now passionate about and also with the growing community worldwide, I am sure that the virus of helping other people will spread through CausePlay.
So what can you do if you are a cosplayer, an anime fan, a gamer, an artist, etc?  Do you need to join an organization or something?

The answer is quite simple, you just need to do your share by helping out in the best way you can.  It can be done individually and you can support events which carries a charity with it regardless of what organization is organizing the event and regardless whether you like the organizers or not.

Helping other people does not involve personal grudge because it should be pure love and the passion to help.

The next time you have a chance to help JUST DO IT and be a Causeplayer.  I would also bring it up that you do not need to be a cosplayer to causeplay because even gamers can do it.  The thing is simple, you just have fun while helping and make it as a part of your life.

By the way there is a page called "Cosplay for a Cause" please do support it.  Another worthy cause is "Cosplay Against Bullying."  Also if you have time don't forget to visit Cosmic Con and Pinoy Otaku Festival 2014: FANTASM this May because they also have worthy cause plus if you see other organizations and events doing things like this PLEASE DO SUPPORT THEM.

Spread #Causeplay and do each of our share in making this world a better place each day.
