Cosplay For Justice Kickstarts Superhero Calendar; Future Profits Will Benefit RINJ Women’s Clinics
Cosplay For Justice has already spent $8,000 of their own money on an upcoming calendar that will feature superhero and villain cosplay spreads by professional photographers Angela Hunt, Cesar Reyes, and J.R. Blackwell; all they need is another $4,500 to complete the project. Once funds have been raised to print the calendars, Cosplay For Justice plans to donate some profits from future sales to the RINJ foundation’s initiative to build “permanent Nurse-led Women’s clinics to help us care for survivors of sexual assault in war zones and areas of armed conflict.”
Cosplay For Justice co-founder Ali Weissman-Kral also works as a project fundraising manager for RINJ.org, and she told us that she hopes to surface more interest in RINJ’s mission at New York Comic Con, where Cosplay For Justice will have a display booth. The models, photographers and contributors for the calendar will staff the booth and help promote the calendar project via “photo opportunities, signings and even appearances at collaborating events during NYCC Super Week.” The booth will also display a custom poster-sized piece featuring all of the calendar’s characters, done by illustrator Michael Montenant; this piece will be available as either a $2,000 backer reward or as an auctioned item at the convention.
To help Cosplay For Justice earn enough money to print their calendars, donate to their Kickstarter page.
