“Your comics, their smiles” is the slogan for Comicare, a non-profit organization that delivers donated comic books to children in medical facilities. Staff members strive to brighten the day of hospitalized children throughout Arizona by becoming the superheroes kids look up to.
Arizona residents can donate any and all comics, which will then be delivered by the staff of Comicare. The organization was started by Tony Contreras, whose cosplay of various superheroes, including that of Ironman, led to his participation in charity events around the state in 2006. As AZ Tony Stark, Contreras’ belief of making someone smile has enabled him to co-found Comicare, where he can make children and adults smile every day.
Arizona Charitable Giving is a labor of love created to make it easier for the residents of our great state to search and find local charities that touch their hearts. We share selected charities and events to a large distribution list of Arizona residents via email and social media on a regular basis. Any qualified charitable organizations are welcome to submit their profile to be included in our on-going outreach efforts.
