It started with Matt Fraction pledging to donate all his royalties from Hawkeye #7 to the Red Cross…
Watching comic fans flock to the Red Cross site to donate in honor of Hawkguy is so cool.
Early this morning my partner called with this idea. How about we make a Team Hawkguy Is Great At Boats pendant and give half of the money to the Red Cross? Not just for a week, or a month, but for as long as people bought them.
Heck Yeah! We are all about comics, geekery, and doing good deeds around here.
So he came up with the design (using Terry Huddleston’s Hawkeye portrait and a real SPACE image of Sandy) and we are making this happen!
Are you part of Team Hawkguy? Are YOU Great At Boats? Do you want to tell the world in a super nerdy, handmade jewelry, purple and hurricane sort of way?
You can do that HERE!
We’ll keep a tally on the Jewelry for a Cause page of how much is donated so everyone is on the same page.
Q: Isn’t it sketchy using Terry’s art for this?
A: Nope. We have an agreement with Terry in regards to his awesome comic art (permission).
Q: Why does only 1/2 go to the Red Cross?
A: Because we have a powerful need to eat. Also the pendants do cost money to produce.
Q: What if I don’t like the Red Cross?
A: Uh, sorry. That’s who is getting the donations.
