Doctor Strange and Marvel Studios Launch Hero Acts
I love when I see brands and companies giving back to those in need and that is why I am excited to share with you that Marvel Studios is launching the first Hero Acts campaign today. This campaign will run through the end of the year and encourages Marvel fans to get in on the action. For every fan who uploads a photo of themselves in their favorite Marvel hero pose, Marvel Studios will donate five dollars ($5) to Save the Children, up to U.S. one million dollars. Marvel Studios is collaborating with Fotition, a new social change platform, to power the experience on a brand-new website MarvelStudiosHeroActs.com. Fans will be able to visit the site to upload their photo and choose from a selection of custom Marvel-themed overlays. They will then be able to post their photo directly to the Hero Acts gallery and to their other social channels using the hashtags #marvelstudios & #heroacts.
I couldn’t wait to get in on the action and created my own Hero Acts photo this afternoon. I had to go with my favorite superhero, Thor, and rock out the selfie with Mjolnir (Thor’s hammer.)
To raise awareness for the Hero Acts campaign, Benedict Cumberbatch, star of Marvel Studios’ upcoming film DOCTOR STRANGE, announced the launch of Marvel Studios: Hero Acts. The video can be found below:
Save the Children gives children in the United States and around the world a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. They invest in childhood — every day, in times of crisis and for our future. Follow them on Twitter and Facebook.
