Cosplayer’s birthday wish for Buddy Walk for Down Syndrome

Being a cosplayer is about more than just a great costume as this Bat-Tastic Cosplayer proved on his birthday!

Michael Wilson is a talented Cosplayer who many may be familiar whose birthday was on August 10th. On his birthday Michael went on social media to ask his friends for a birthday gift not for himself, but rather a young friend of his named DylanMichael and Dylan are two members of “The Dylan-ators” and they are participating in this year’s Buddy Walk for Down Syndrome.

Michael’s birthday wish was to have Dylan win the title of biggest team and raise the most money for the Buddy Walk for Down SyndromeMichael asked for donations of $1 or $5 or $10 or any other amount his social media friends and followers could afford. By August 11th, Michael awoke to almost $300.00 having been donated and raised for his little Bat-Dude Dylan and his team for the Buddy Walk for Down Syndrome.

Michael posted the following on social media, “That was the best present ever, you all rock! Thanks for always supporting me and keeping me motivated to not only push myself creatively but also to have the most fun I can with this hobby turned passion and most importantly finding ways to stay true to my roots by giving back through it at all times. I can only hope that I inspire others as much as you all have done for me. 🙂
