When, Pedro (@wolverinept), Mike (@notsosilentmike), Danny (@TheAgentBurgos) and I (@Comic_Canuck) started ComicBookTherapy.com we knew the site would talk about the comic book industry and everything connected to it, but we also agreed on the importance of giving back to our communities. Comics can be a good way to do that. Well, last week I donated 95% of of my comic book collection (just over 2,500 comics valued at $9,000) to the Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary. Comics are one way to get reluctant readers to read and they also offer a wonderful escape to children in need of happy distractions.
Please stay tuned for an announcement about a website to encourage others involved in donating comic books in their community.
I was fortunate enough to have CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) Radio and TV, Metro News, as well as the Calgary SUN newspaper report on this story. Here are the links to their coverage:
