The Los Angeles Times Family Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund, is committed to ensuring that at-risk kids and families in Southern California have access to education and literacy programs that will allow them to realize their full potential. Organization founder Colonel Robert R. McCormick worked to make his community a better place and left a legacy of service. He believed that we all can be leaders with the power to change the future, and Blastoff Comics is a shining example of that mission. For nearly 60 years, the McCormick Foundation has kept those beliefs alive. In continuing the legacy, the McCormick Foundation, through its Communities Program and Funds (like the Los Angeles Times Family Fund), partners with media outlets, sports teams, and philanthropic organizations across the country to transform and improve communities.
Readers interested in learning more about the Los Angeles Times Family Fund or in making a direct donation may do so by visiting the fund's website. In addition, please remember that Blastoff Comics will donate a portion of their proceeds to this wonderful organization this month. If you have the opportunity, I would encourage you to stop by Blastoff, meet the incredibly personable store owners, and assist in helping both the Los Angeles Times Family Fund and local business owners by picking up a few comics. As the Blastoff website says, "Comics can make saving the world look easy." By shopping at Blastoff, it has never been easier to save the world, one comic book at a time.
If you have a volunteer opportunity or an important cause that could use the assistance of a few geeks, please email the details to barbra (at) fanboycomics.net.
