Let’s face it, none of the stuff we put up here could be considered of life or death importance. We’re all about entertainment and fun and it should be that way most of the time.
However, when something comes along of real-world importance, actually deals with life and death and could potentially help or make a difference in someone else’s life, we feel duty-bound to bring it to you. Today that something takes the form of comic book donations to the Children’s Hospital of Boston.
Writer Adri Cowan is taking matters into her own hands and doing something to help the children affected by the recent tragedy in Boston. Said Cowan:
“. . . I want to help. In the very least, I’d like to distract the traumatized, the children, the people whose lives are going to be changed forever, regardless of limbs lost or physical impairments. So I asked my friends at local comic shops and publishers to help me bring kids-friendly comic books and books to Boston Children’s Hospital, and anywhere else that needs them.”
She will be taking the donated comics to the hospital on Wednesday, April 24th. Until that time, donations can be made by emailing Adri at: adri (dot) cowan (at) gmail (dot) com or getting in touch with here via Twitter @adrileya.
We think this is a very worthwhile cause and we wish her the best of luck.
