About FaffCon’s Charity Liaison
Bob Souer is a full-time professional story-teller and voice actor. He’s also an original Faffer, and has not missed a single FaffCon to date. Bob’s generosity is evident from the very first moment you meet him, and that has led to him becoming FaffCon’s go-to Charity liaison. He has helped research and find all of the local charities that have been donated to in the past, and Faffy is so proud and grateful to have him on the team.
