Philanthropic Friday: Marvel Hero Acts

Every morning when I wake up, I make sure the girls haven’t hit their snooze too many times, then sit on the couch surfing Facebook for a few minutes until the coffee kicks in. The other day was a little more difficult than normal because my feed was filled with talk about the funeral of the 6 year old boy who was shot on the playground. Everyone was encouraged to show up in their favorite super hero clothing.

There were photos of military, police and firemen displaying their super hero t-shirts under their uniforms. Batman giving the eulogy. People in costumes showing their respects in front of the casket. It positively broke my heart, but at the same time gave a glimpse of light and hope in a very dark world. You see, it is a prime example of how people can use the idea of a super hero to make such a difference.

  2. That is an interesting concept. With all the Super Hero fans out there I would assume they should be able to raise a good amount.
