When I say the HERO Initiative has teamed up with Ralph’s, I’m not talking about Chief Wiggum’s kid.
The philanthropic organization known as the HERO Initiative has a brand spankin’ new offer for all you California comic fans on Free Comic Book Day.
If you set up a card with Ralph’s Supermarket, you can show your new card to Collector’s Paradise (in Winnetka) or the Comic Bug (in Manhattan Beach), and get a FREE What If? comic drawn by the late great Mike Wieringo. (Collector’s Paradise will also have Marc Guggenheim, Mike Kunkel, Joe Benitez, Jim Mahfood, and J.T. Krul sign some stuff and take part in the FCBD festivities with HERO.)
But how do you sign up? The HERO Initiative explains:
1) Sign in to Ralphs.com with your email and password
1a) If you have not created an account, create one now! Takes about 60 seconds!
2) Go to:
3) Complete the three-step process; When signing up, our NPO # (non-profit organization #) is: 80680, and we’re under our corporate name, “A Commitment To Our Roots.” Don’t let it throw ya!
For all those who don’t know, the Hero Initiative does a lot of great work for a lot of creators in need. So why not kill three birds with one stone: help the Initiative, get a great book, and maybe even get some groceries!
