A couple of days ago, Viper Comics learned that one of their readers, Zachary M., an eight-year-old, was raising money for the St. Baldrick’s Charity by volunteering to have his head shaved.
As they say on their website, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
“Zachary had let us know in the past that he was a fan out our books, especially ‘Battle Smash’ and ‘Hero Petz’ and he’d even go so far as to create his own Fan Art for our Editor-In-Chief’s webcomic ‘Cemetery Street.’ When he asked us to help get the word out about his attempt to raise some money, we were completely onboard,” said Jessie Garza, Viper Comics’ President. “You hear all the time about how selfish kids are these days. So when Zachary asked us to help spread the word, we jumped at the chance. We deal with heroes all the time in comicbooks, it’s cool to find someone who takes that on board and tries to get out there and do something good for others. Especially an eight-year-old.”
