When Fanboy Comics is not providing you with the latest in geek news and entertainment, the FBC staff hopes to offer our readers a myriad of opportunities to give back to the community. We love reading comics, watching movies, and playing video games, but we are never happier than when we are able to help others in need. With Geeks Care: How You Can Help, FBC will provide you a variety of causes that would greatly appreciate your time.
In this special second installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help this week, the Fanboy Comics staff would like to highlight the generous efforts of Jason Inman (co-host of DC All Access and US military veteran) as he endeavors to send 10,000 comic books to troops overseas by January 1, 2016, in collaboration with Comics for Soldiers. Dubbed as the Jawiin Comic Drive, Inman is hoping to share the gift of geekiness with troops overseas to give them a fun reminder of home. Both new and used comic books are being accepted, and directions for how to donate the books are listed below. Fanboy Comics is excited to join this holiday endeavor, as we will be donating 300 comic books and graphic novels to the drive! We hope that you will join us in giving back during the holidays!
The steps for donating your comic books to the Jawiin Comic Drive are fast and easy!
1) Box and ship the comics to:
COMICS FOR SOLDIERS
c/o Jawiin Comic Drive
4780 SPRINGFIELD DR.
TERRE HAUTE, IN 47803
2)Send a picture of your comics and the number of books you are donating to jawiincomicdrive (at) gmail (dot) com.
*Please note that if you don’t send the number of comic books that you are donating to the email, they will have an inaccurate count.
It’s as easy as that! Let’s join together to show our troops how much we appreciate them!
If you have a volunteer opportunity or an important cause that could use the assistance of a few geeks, please email the details to barbra (at) fanboycomics.net.
