Hints Of A Movement To Donate After Seeing Avengers Movie

imageI've been seeing hints here and there of people asking others to donate the cost of a ticket to this week's anticipated-by-many-funnybook-fans Avengers movie (from the comic created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby) to one of comics' established charities: the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund or the Hero Initiative. You may or may not come across such a request this week; I thought it was worth giving you a heads-up and alerting you to the possibility.

I am in broad terms pro-people doing whatever they believe is moral, just pro that general mindset. I also don't have much in the way of critical acumen when it comes to deciding which strategy of any kind, boycott or bonus-payment or wholehearted watching without guilt, really gets at the heart of any one matter, particularly employing a "this is the one that will affect the change desired" criterion. I think it's great anytime anyone wants to send money to organizations that do admirable work, though, and if those two organizations benefit this week because of the opening of a movie I think that's a good thing: those organizations can put any money to good use, matinee or full-admission amounts.
