Where Your Coin is Going
Capes4Heroes is a nonprofit that does a lot more than we’re doing to make a difference. While we’ll be sitting on our butts for two days, they’ve been busting theirs for three years—by tailoring superhero capes to children with life-threatening illnesses and disabilities. We thought that warranted a little cash thrown their way.
We’re betting you’re a human and you agree. Below, check out what kind of donor you can be to show Capes4Heroes some love.
THE CIVILIAN DONOR
Donate what you can, and thanks for the help! Click here to hero up.
THE PLAYBOY DONOR
Are you a fan of Robert Downey Jr.’s smashing goatee and quick wit? Sponsor us through the Iron Man movies! Your ten bucks a pop will power us through the highs of Tony Stark’s dashing plane rescues and the lows of his attempts at racecar driving. Click here to donate $30 and prove there’s a soft, gooey arc reactor under that steely armor of yours.
THE ASGARDIAN DONOR
Do you like asking Idris Elba for passage? Does your brother swing between conflicted sociopath and conflicted megalomaniac? Do you simply like watching other people in those circumstances? Then sponsor us through Thor and Thor: The Dark World at ten bucks a film like the Asgardian champ you are. Click here to donate $20 and flaunt your Mjolnir of morality.
THE ALL-AMERICAN DONOR
If you hate Nazis, this is the perfect donation for you. Sponsor us through Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier at ten dollars apiece for the sake of freedom. Click here to donate that $20 and show everyone you think Hitler was bad.
THE BLACK OPS DONOR
Fund every film featuring Black Widow, which includes Iron Man 2, Marvel’s The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Avengers: Age of Ultron. For nine dollars a movie, you’ll be showing support for a hero who faces down gods and monsters without a single superpower--which is just the way we like her. Click here to donate $36 in honor of Earth’s most super human.
THE INCREDIBLE DONOR
Click here to donate $10 or WE WILL SMASH YOU, PUNY HUMAN!
THE AVENGING DONOR
Sponsor us for two bucks an hour--or increase your rate--to make an amazing difference in a child’s life. By giving $46 dollars or higher, you’ll be helping Capes4Heroes empower children far faster than mere mortals. What bigger reward is there than that? Click here to donate $46 or more and remind kids with struggling health that they’re the real heroes.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT DONATING
Something to keep in mind is that we’re using two services to collect your gifts: YouCaring.com to host our fundraising and PayPal to transfer the funds themselves. YouCaring.com, thankfully, doesn’t skim a cut off the top. Which is good, because as much as PayPal is helping us out here, it still takes 2.9% plus 30 cents of everyone’s donations. It’s not a lot, but if it matters to you, just thought we should give you the heads up.
