A truly fun experience!

Marvel Offers Opportunity to Join the X-Men with Charity Donation

One of the greatest things about being part of fandoms is the sense of community. From the overwhelming amount of support that fans show those they admire to the incredible way they show that support to one another too, it’s an experience that’s hard to explain.

Unless, of course, you’ve experienced it. We’ve basically been built from fandoms and we know how important it is to have that sense of community.

Omaze has made it possible for fans to use that sense of togetherness for a larger good by providing opportunities to win once in a lifetime prizes for donations to a number of charities and organizations.

The latest opportunity involved GLSEN and Marvel.

GLSEN helps children in K-12 schools around the country each year, aiming to help provide a safe education for every child. So it makes sense that the winner of this drive gets to be immortalized in an X-Men comic.

The Omaze donation page reads as follows.

Thanks to Marvel Entertainment, the X-Men comics are adding an incredible new character to its roster… YOU. Sharpen your claws, clear your mind, shapeshift a smile onto your face because you’re about to be transported into the extraordinary world of mutants. Here’s how: You’ll send a photo of yourself (or a friend of your choosing) to the talented Marvel artists, who will then draw you in as a guest character in an upcoming comic in the X-Men universe. Will your character live or die? Sorry, you’ll have to wait until you receive your signed copy of the comic book and the original page art to find out. But for those bragging rights… it’ll be worth the wait.

You can donate to GLSEN here and if the act of helping to create safe and inclusive schools wasn’t enough, you’ll be entered to win immediately.

The donation window is open for the next 56 days.
