A friend of mine, Brooke, recently posted a status on facebook about organizing a charity event for families in Newtown affected by the school shooting. If you are willing to be a part of this, please send her a message. I put a link to her blog on her name, and straight to her ask and submit boxes here. She will also be setting up a donation pool. Like I said, if you want to help, please get in contact with her.
Her status post will be below the cut.
”I was contacted by friends asking about potentially organizing a charity event//fundraiser for families in Newtown because those children are most certainly in need of heroes right now. Immediately, I thought of cosplayers.
Is there any way that people would be willing to organize a large Meet the Heroes photo opportunity in Newtown to help raise money for these kids? DC, Marvel, anything goes so long as it’s a recognizable costume. And even if you don’t have a costume and are willing to help with running it that would be great. We could even organize a small bake sale and hot drinks to keep people warm and help raise more money.
For those of you who don’t know, Newtown is about an hour from me over here in NY, roughly 60 miles north of NYC and maybe 30-45 minutes from Danbury? How many of you would be able or willing to participate?
I’m willing to contact the town board and any other permissions we may need so long as I have a little help planning and figuring this out.
I don’t know about you, but I still believe in heroes. We should make sure these kids do too.”
