Feb 9: Game On Comics collecting comics for charity
Note that Jamie Crosley will be signing his all-ages comic book on the same day.
All Back Issues only $2 for the entire month of January!!
"SHARE THE COMICS LOVE" WITH GAME ON COMICS!
Help GAME ON bring joy to kids fighting cancer and soldiers deployed overseas!
On FEBRUARY 9, 2013, Game On Comics will accept donations of comic books and money for distribution between St Jude's Children's Research Hospital and Veterans for Foreign Wars (VFW) for distribution to deployed troops. Both charities serve soldiers and/or kids who would love to have a chance to escape into the world of comics that we know and love. On February 9th, bring in any comic books you would like to donate and volunteers at GOC will collect, sort, and pack the comics for shipping to the charities.
Monetary donations are most appreciated, and will be used to pay for shipping the comics. Any leftover funds will be split as a cash donation between St Jude's and the VFW.
Don't have comics to donate, but want to send some anyway? Our back issues will be priced at $2 each for folks to buy and donate just for these four hours, just for this event.
Virginia's own Jamie Cosley (creator of the all ages book CODY THE CAVALIER) will be at the shop signing copies of his CODY THE CAVALIER comic, as well as drawing sketches, which will be perfect for young kids looking for a unique valentine to give their parents!
If you can't make it to the shop on the 9th but still want to help, email jr at gameoncomics dot com.
Keep an eye on your email for more special news regarding this event and possible prizes!
Volunteers to help collect, sort, pack, and deliver boxes are still needed, so please call or email to let us know if you can come help, even for an hour!
Thanks, and thanks in advance for all your help in bringing a little happiness to all of those out there that need it!
