Comics For Joplin Tornado Relief

May 25, 2011 at 5:27pm

This is a call to publishers, distributors, stores, anyone who has all ages books they would like to donate.

 

My name is Jason A. Hurley, my brother and I own a comic shop called Hurley's Heroes in Joplin, Missouri. This last weekend, Joplin was hit by a deadly tornado that wiped out a huge chunk of town. Several hundred, perhaps even thousands, of families were put out of their homes. Now, hundreds of children are stuck inside huge shelters, and no doubt bored out of their minds. We've taken a few books from the store to a shelter nearby, and they were greatly appreciated. I've been inspired, and I want to make this effort bigger.

 

I have plenty of people, mostly my loyal customers, willing to distribute these books far and wide to the various shelters around town. Now, I need books to distribute. If anyone out there has all ages comics that they would be willing to donate to this cause, you can just send them to me, and I'll get them out to the shelters.
