Thanks for supporting our Batman We Can Be Heroes campaign. We’re at it again – this time featuring the whole Justice League. Check it out at fighthun.gr/JusticeLeague

It’s time to walk the walk.

For every hero, there comes a day. A day when they step forward. A day when talk turns to action. Over 8 million people have had their lives affected by the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa. It’s bad. And it hasn’t been this bad in over 60 years.

All of us at DC Entertainment are joining with Batman and the Justice League and making a stand. Today is the day we fight. 

Hey everyone, just a few updates: 

  • We can only fulfill perks within the United States
  • The $25 Batman/Superman #1 WCBH variant cover delivery date has been delayed to October 2013. 
  • For any questions please email us at wecanbeheroes@lapromo.com

In the fight against the hunger crisis, we’re not backing down. We're just getting started. Together, we hit our goal and raised $50,000 in two days after the campaign's launch. And now, we're working towards a new goal of raising $100,000 for our nonprofit partners so that we can bring more support to this fight.

Check out the amazing stuff designed for you by the creative community that brings Batman to life in comic books, video games, animated series, movies and more. From one-of-a-kind items, to once-in-a-lifetime fan experiences you’ll never forget, our guys have come together to create exclusive Batman stuff just for you.

This stuff is only available until May 10, 2013, so check out the latest perks. (And scroll down to see how you can get something good and do something great, just for visiting the campaign!)

This fight can be won. 

That’s why our We Can Be Heroes campaign is partnering with leading organizations who are already on the ground in Africa making a difference. The funds we raise will go to our league of super-committed hunger crisis fighters:

Save the Children—Tirelessly committed to improving the lives of children and families whose lives have been changed by the hunger crisis.

International Rescue Committee—delivering life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable people.

Mercy Corps—Unfailingly dedicated to making life more livable in the world’s toughest places.

Join your heroes - and be one yourself. 

It’s not just a message. It’s a reality. When you join in our campaign, you’re making a REAL difference for REAL people. It doesn’t take much. But it does take something, however big or small, from each and every one of us. Give today. It’s that simple. It’s that powerful.
