Lets Get G.I. Joburg to JoeCon 2018 via GoFundMe

Alright, before we get in to this post – For the most part, many of you know me. If you don’t know me well, I’d hope that you would get the feeling from my articles that I wouldn’t share something with you that I couldn’t get behind myself. With that said, here’s the scoop – 

You know’em and if you’re like us here on the Island, you love’em! Who? G.I.Joburg, of course! This trio from South Africa have been repping G.I.Joe for what seems like forever. Being based in South Africa does have its drawbacks however… Paul, Rob and Steve have never been able to attend the biggest event on the GI Joe collectors’ calendar: the annual GI Joe Convention. With this being the last year, it’s understandable that they’re doing all in their power to get there. 

So, how can you help? Easy! If you have a few bucks to spare, head on over to the Get GI Joburg to JoeCon 2018 GoFundMe page and contribute what you can. Every penny counts! Let’s get G.I.Joburg to GIJoeCon 2018!  Once you get your contribution in, join us after the break to discuss on the Cobra Island Forums!
