On Jan. 12, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck just off Port-au-Prince, the capital of already suffering Haiti. The quake has caused untold physical damage and left countless people dead, injured or missing, including staff members of the United Nations mission.
We asked for your help to contribute to relief efforts in Haiti. From Jan. 14 to 22, we offered the first issue of Omega Comics Presents, our new anthology series debuting Feb. 10, for only $3 (even waiving shipping charges!), donating 100 percent of sales to Save the Children‘s emergency relief efforts in Haiti. Save the Children provides immediate lifesaving assistance, such as food, water, shelter and child-friendly spaces to those in need in Port-au-Prince and the surrounding region.
Readers from across the United States and Canada pitched in — even some retailers and creators — and we made a $100 donation to Save the Children on Jan. 23. We appreciate all the people who helped spread the word as well as those of you who tossed in your coins. And media outlets such as Comics Bulletin and KTNV Channel 13 Las Vegas for carrying the story.
Remember, you can still make a difference for the devastated people of Haiti by donating directly to Save the Children now!
