Posted: 11/8/2007

One click, one dime, and…ka-ching!

CGC is hosting this article because we support Hero Initiative and hope you will too!

LOS ANGELES (November 6, 2007) - CBGXtra.com, the Internet companion to celebrated Comics Buyer's Guide magazine, is making donating to The Hero Initiative as easy as pie. For everyone who goes to CBGXtra.com and clicks on the Hero Initiative banner, CBG will donate 10 cents to Hero-simple as that. This promotion costs you, the consumer, absolutely nothing.

The Hero Initiative is the only federally chartered 501 (c) (3) charity that helps older comic creators in medical or financial need. “This is a great promotion that's as easy as falling out of bed,” said Hero Board member Steve Borock. “Finally, someone's come up with something so simple, even I can do it.”

“As the longest-running magazine about comics, it's our pleasure and obligation to give back to the industry that's produced so much entertainment all these years,” said Comics Buyer's Guide Editor Brent Frankenhoff.

This promotion is limited to one click per person per day-so no need to injure your index finger! Once a day will do!

The Hero Initiative is the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need. Hero creates a financial safety net for yesterdays' creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. It's a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment. For more information, visit HeroInitiative.org or call 310-909-7809.
