Working with leading comic book retailers Comic Odyssey, Filbar’s and Planet X, Wunderman Thompson Philippines has launched the #SuitsForHeroes fundraising campaign, to help purchase personal protective equipment for frontliners in the fight against COVID-19.
Accessible at the SuitsForHeroes website, Comic Odyssey will give each donor’s contribution a store credit which can be used for back issues at Comic Odyssey’s BGC branch.
To promote the campaign, renowned Filipino comic book artists have donated their time and talent to create the artwork to shine a spotlight on the heroic efforts of frontliners. Featured artists include Leinil Yu (X-Men, Civil War), Stephen Segovia (Wonder Woman), Kajo Baldisimo (Trese, Buffy), Whilce Portacio (X-Men), Mico Suayan, and Harvey Tolibao (Green Lantern) with Levi Ramirez on colors. Towards the end of July, these exclusive pieces will be put up for auction to raise additional funds.
All #SuitsForHeroes proceeds will go to the following: Frontliner Feeders Philippines, Kaya Natin, and Philippine General Hospital Medical Foundation Incorporated.
