Charles Soule And Fans Teamed Up To Donate Over $2K To @RedCross For #Harvey Relief… Here's How You Can Help Too

With 6.8 million people already affected by Hurricane Harvey and more rain and flooding still to come, the people in Texas need the support of everyone around the world.

Charles Soule And Fans Teamed Up To Donate Over $2K To @RedCross For #Harvey Relief… Here's How You Can Help Too

Charles Soule, writer of Astonishing X-Men and Daredevil for Marvel Comics, put out a call to his fans to donate to the Red Cross to support its disaster relief efforts, offering to match donations up to a thousand dollars. Soule's fans came through, donating more than enough for Soule to match the full $1000 donation. Soule posted on Twitter:

If you missed out on the chance, you can still donate. Besides donating on their website with credit card or paypal, the Red Cross has set up a system where you can call 1-800-RED CROSS or text HARVEY to 90999 to make a ten dollar donation to disaster relief efforts.

Here in the comics community, Incredible Hulk writer Greg Pak is donating 100% of proceeds from two books on his website to the North Texas food bank, and you can learn more about that here. And here's some other ways you can help out

The Salvation Army has three ways you can donate:

Or for animal lovers, you can donate to Austin Pets Alive:

If you've got some extra room, Airbnb has created a service allowing people to offer people displaced by the hurricane a place to stay:

You can also donate blood, and if you're 14 or older, you can volunteer to help out directly with Samaritan's Purse. These are, of course, only a few of the organizations that are offering ways to contribute to the effort, so check with your favorite charities or local organizations to see if they have their own drive set up.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
