DC Launches Third ‘We Can Be Heroes’ Humanitarian Aid Campaign On Indiegogo
Following two successful crowdfunding campaigns that raised a combined $285,000 to benefit Save the Children, International Rescue Committee and Mercy Corps’ humanitarian efforts in Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya, DC Entertainment has returned to Indiegogo to raise further funds for its We Can Be Heroes initiative. The third and final campaign of the 2013 consists of a Justice Leagued themed six-week initiative, which will run through October 28. Each week, DC will incorporate a new assortment of perks centering around the JL and its heroic members.
As with previous campaigns, perk prices range from about $10-3,000. Introductory perks include digital comic downloads, signed comics, comics with variant covers and exclusive clothing items. As fans get closer to the $3K range, though, the perks begin to include things like a Kindle signed by Geoff Johns, an advance "Arrow" episode screening party and even chances to meet TV Wonder Woman Lynda Carter or have lunch with DC creators and executives.
Here's how DC breaks down the theme schedule for this campaign:
Week of September 17th: Justice League
Week of September 24th: Wonder Woman
Week of October 1st: Green Lantern / Green Arrow
Week of October 8th: The Flash / Aquaman / Cyborg
Week of October 15th: Batman / Superman
Week of October 22nd: Justice League
So far DC has raised more than $8,000 of its $125,000 fundraising goal for this campaign with 40 days left to go. You can learn more about the latest We Can Be Heroes effort at its official Indiegogo page.
