“TEAM” up with Wade’s Comic Madness on Free Comic Book Day for a great cause!
Saturday, May 3rd is FCBD 2014! We’ll have the usual awesome assortment of FREE COMICS and monster deals (details to be released soon), but the thing we want to spotlight is our TEAM WILLA FUNDRAISER:
Our longtime customer and friend Mike P. is going through a terrible situation as his 6-month-old daughter Willa has been diagnosed with leukemia To assist with their mounting bills, on May 3rd we will be running Silent Auctions, a Bake Sale, raffling Prize Baskets, and selling “Team Willa” wristbands all day, with 100% of the proceeds going to the family.
***We are reaching out across the community to ask for donations of anything that we can include in the Auctions, Bake Sale, or Raffle Baskets — even an item that gets a couple dollars means a couple more dollars that will be donated to the family! *** If you are donating a basket that is made up and ready to go, it’s okay to drop it off by Friday, May 2nd; and Bake Sale items are okay to bring in then or the day of the event. If you’re donating loose items (which is fine!), please have them to us a few days early so they can be organized.
And if you know of any businesses that can pitch in, we’ll be happy to hand out their cards or flyers and list them as a co-sponsor as well. I can be contacted via messages here, at my email firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone: 215-946-9381.
If you aren’t local but would still like to give to the charity, there is also an online fundraiser; you can read more about Willa’s story here: http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/team-willa/157953
I don’t mind begging on behalf of someone in need — ***PLEASE*** spread the word and share with anybody who might be interested in helping!!
Here are some event updates:
