I'm secretly Cassandra Cain aka Blackbat disguising herself as a PhD student with dreams of making a positive contribution in the battle against cancer.

I'm a researcher, writer, somewhat graphics-maker, dog-lover, and keyboard-smashing fan of DC Comics and the Avatar universe. Here are 3 other things you should know about me: I'm still upset over Young Justice being cancelled, I wish I was part of the Batfam, and Mako is my pouty firebending hot boy v2.0.

I still believe in heroes. Do you?

Countries in the Horn of Africa (Ethiopia, Somalia, & Kenya) have been battling a severe hunger crisis due to drought, with thousands of people dying and hundreds of thousands fleeing to refugee camps for help. More than 9 million people are in need of help. These are real people suffering from the very real villain of hunger, thirst, disease, and death. 

The Justice League and DC Entertainment have joined forces with Save the ChildrenInternational Rescue Committee, and Mercy Corps to form We Can Be Heroes and deliver aid to those who need it the most. DC Entertainment will also match all donations 100%. 

To celebrate this humble blog reaching its next milestone in followers (thank you!), and in place of a giveaway, I’m going to follow in the footsteps of our favorite heroes and hold a reblog-for-charity of sorts, and I will be donating the money to We Can Be Heroes.

Here’s how it works:

  • For every reblog and like, I will donate $0.05 USD. That’s 5 cents in US Dollars. Therefore, 1000 notes would equal $50. 
  • You definitely don’t need to be following me, although that would be awesome! (I’m mainly a DC blog)
  • The deadline will be August 24, 2012 at 11:00 PM PST. I know it’s only a week, but I think we can definitely do it. 
  • I will be dedicating the donation to the DC Fandom on Tumblr.
  • I will be making a minimum donation of $100 regardless of the number of notes this receives. There is also a maximum amount I will have to enforce (because I am only one person), but the notes will have to be substantially high for that to happen. 

Here’s more information about We Can Be Heroes, including how the money is used and a chance for you to make a personal donation. 

Thank you so much for following me, for supporting me, and for being a hero or heroine to the world we all live in :)
