We love comics. And there’s no better way to show it than by taking our love for comics out into the world and doing some good. Every month, we donate a portion of all Blastoff proceeds to a different charity or non-profit organization.
As you are no doubt already aware. we lost a great actor, the best Batman of all, and most important. a truly good man on Friday, June 9, 2017, when Adam West passed away from leukemia. As the family of Mr. West reports, “One of his last requests before he passed was to keep his bright light shining on the world by supporting children who have cancer and their families by donating to the following organization that was near and dear to his heart.”
To honor Adam West, we’re helping Camp Rainbow Gold.
The mission of Camp Rainbow Gold is to provide emotionally empowering experiences to Idaho’s children diagnosed with cancer and their families. What started in the mid ’80s as a week of camp for a handful of children diagnosed with cancer is now, as you may guess, much, much more. Yes, Camp Rainbow Gold is still a summer oncology camp, but it’s also a sibling camp and a family camp. It’s a college scholarship program and a teen support group. It’s 365 days of making a difference in the lives of these children as well as their families and others who support them. Camp Rainbow Gold is and independent non-profit organization.Based in Boise, Idaho, with a satellite location in Ketchum, Idaho, CRG is a large network of the most generous, loving people who are devoted to providing emotionally empowering experiences. Camp Rainbow Gold is sustained by community fundraising, private donations and volunteer efforts. Camp Rainbow Gold is supported by more than 200 volunteers from around Idaho and has been accredited through the American Camp Association since 2002.

And I don’t know about you, but when Batman asks me for help, I do it.
