One of the awesome things about Black Panther coming out in almost a month is that for the first time we'll have an African-American superhero in the lead role of a superhero film and a crowdfunding campaign in Harlem is helping children see the movie as well!
The fundraiser, which you can go to HERE, initially set a $10,000 goal to take about 300 kids to see Black Panther in theaters and covers the cost of a Manhattan movie ticket, snacks, and adult chaperones.
The great thing is that the GoFundMe is currently at over $24,000 of its $10,000 goal and all the extra proceeds are going to the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem!
Just contributed to support @FredTJoseph’s effort to bring Harlem kids to see #BlackPanther. If you also believe representation matters & you’re able, I hope you’ll consider supporting, thank you: https://t.co/vaLO7JmEwl— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) January 8, 2018
The GoFundMe has even had celebrities donate to the GoFundMe, including Star Wars: The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams, who donated $10,000!
This is awesome to see so many people supporting children seeing a black major cinematic and comic book character come to life!
Black Panther will be in theaters on February 16.
