BLASTOFF’S FIRST ANNUAL HOLIDAY CHARITY SALE
Benefiting the Los Angeles Mission
Saturday, December 15, 11 am to 7 pm
30% Off Comics and Books with your donation!
Blastoff invites you to help make a difference this holiday season by donating much-needed new, unopened clothing and personal supplies to the Los Angeles Mission. We’d like to provide the Los Angeles Mission with as much as possible this year, and to encourage everyone to help, we’re holding our first Annual Holiday Charity Sale, Saturday, December 15! For all new supplies you donate up to the amount of $40, we’ll offer you a 30% discount on comics, trades, hardcovers and vintage comics (art and statuary not included). For donation amounts over $40, we’ll also include bonus gifts from us to you, including signed comics from Mark Waid and Harlan Ellison, and Marvel and DC trade paperbacks. According to the L.A. Mission, “Our ‘Friends and Neighbors’ who come to us every day for a shower and clean clothing do not have access to hygiene products and toiletries unless we supply them. For this reason a constant and abundant supply of these are required at the Mission. Without your help, we must purchase these products.”

“At this festive season of the year…it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the poor and destitute, who suffer greatly at the present time. Many thousands are in want of common necessaries; hundreds of thousands are in want of common comforts. We choose this time, because it is a time, of all others, when Want is keenly felt, and Abundance rejoices.”
–Charles Dickens, 1843
