Heroes for Heroes
Graphic made by ardentcapacitor
Here’s your chance to help out and make an impact! The idea is simple enough, we’re donating YJ/GLTAS toys to the Ronald McDonald House Charities, in the hopes we can do some good and also garner media attention to our cause, and make enough of an impact that CN decides to continue the shows.
You can donate as many toys as you want, it depends only on your budget. We would love it if everyone, from both fandoms everywhere in the world could help, because that’s how we’ll make the most impact. Please don’t shy away from helping, since the more people, and the more toys will mean a bigger batch of toys sent to kids looking for a hero.
Some key information to look at:
When to send the toys: Saturday February 23rd and Sunday February 24th
Where to send:
Ronald McDonald House Charities
One Kroc Drive
Oak Brook, IL 60523
Why there: McDonalds has had the YJ and GLTAS toys before, so they’re interested in the shows, and what better way to support a franchise in the name of the show [like the Chuck fandom did] than to give toys to those that need it most.
Where to buy:
And also check for local stores, and send them from there! We also want to add, especially for those GLTAS fans, that toys specifically from the show are not easy to buy [or cheap], so you can also buy generic GLTAS or DC Mattel toys to make up for it. This also goes for YJ fans as well, but please try to buy the show’s toys if you can.
Also, for International fans, you can either send your money to an American to buy the toys for you on Amazon, pay the higher prices on the international stores, or use the two other links to buy them yourself.
Lastly, why not take a picture/screenshot of the toy you’re sending and post it on your blog with the tag “HeroesforHeroes” so we can all see your contribution to the YJ/GLTAS campaign!
Just some things I thought I’d add because I’ve gotten a fair share of questions regarding this:
If you can, add a custom message letting them know this is for the Heroes for Heroes campaign!
Also, the dates above are for when you should SEND the toys, not when they should receive them.
And, when you’re buying it, you can set the shipping address to be the RMHC headquarters, that way you don’t have to pay for shipping twice.
Also, we need more American volunteers to help!
