Being able to bring happiness into other people's lives by helping them to acquire the best the Comic Book world has offer has always been a goal with us at Pedigree Comics. After thirteen years of being in business we felt that that is not enough. There are those who brought this wonderful hobby of ours or just our plain love of comics to life and continue to do so today whose lives have had been turned upside down and are in need of help. Upon launching the exciting new look to our site and expanding our business into the world of Original Comic Art, we here at Pedigree Comics felt the calling to be able to give back as well as let our loyal customers join in our task at hand as well.
To make this calling come to fruition we have partnered up with Hero Initiative.
Hero Initiative is the first federally recognized not for profit organization dedicated to helping comic book creators, writers and artists in need. Founded in 2000 by a consortium of comic book and trade publishers including Marvel Comics, Image Comics, Dark Horse Comics, Wizard Entertainment, Cross Gen Comics, and Dynamic Forces Inc; the 501 (c) (3) charity aims to assist comic creators with health, medical, and quality of life assistance. With this in mind, we have decided to give our loyal customers the opportunity to join with us and give back some happiness to those who have brought so much joy to us throughout our lives.
After any purchase on our website, whether it be though our daily comic or art exchange or our grand auctions, our customers will have the availability upon checkout to make a donation in any amount they choose to Hero Initiative. 100% of these donations will be sent to Hero Initiative on a quarterly basis. We have also set up a GO FUND ME account, and are trying to raise $25,000 to be able to help them out as well. Anyone wanting to make a donation there can go to; gofundme.com and look up the campaign entitled "LETS HELP HERO INITIATIVE". Here you will be able to again donate any contribution you'd like as well.
Without these people who need our help, our hobby, our superheroes wouldn't exist today. It feels good to give back...try it! You'll feel like a superhero!
