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


Thanks to you - we did it again. 

So far, over 1,300 of you have supported this campaign, and raised well over $100,000 to bring hope and help to the Horn of Africa. We stood together and we stood strong. You've crushed our goal and on behalf of everyone at DC Entertainment, thank you for your generosity. 

Stand together, stand strong to fight the hunger crisis.

This fight is OUR fight — Super Heroes, creators and fans band together! Nothing can match the power and strength of a united front. Our mission: bring hope to the men, women and children in the Horn of Africa. That’s why the team of artists, animators, writers and creators behind Superman are in the thick of it. And that’s why we’ve put together a truly incredible roster of exclusive stuff—just for you.

One small act can make you a hero.

Not only are we more dedicated than ever to the fight against the hunger crisis, we’re also celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Man of Steel. And what could be a more honorable tribute than teaming up with our legions of fans to make one big difference for the men, women and children who need our help? Everything and anything you do will help. Just pick your perk, give today and you’ll help make a true difference.

It’s up to us—ALL of us

Get something good. Do something great. This is all about you guys. We’re doing what we love, to give you, the fans, what you love. Make it happen RIGHT NOW because you can only get this awesome, exclusive stuff RIGHT HERE.

So let’s stand up, stand strong and stand as one to fight the hunger crisis. And remember— heroes never give up. They give now!

If you have any questions check out our FAQ and Legal below or email us at wecanbeheroes@lapromo.com.  

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is it true that these perks can’t be shipped internationally?
