Comic Book Charities – Wonder Woman Day
Wonder Woman Day is a charity event that is held in Portland and Flemington, NJ each year to raise money for domestic violence shelters. To date, the organization has raised over $69,000 for shelters that help battered women. This charity event has been put together by Andy Mangels, a comic writer and curator of the Wonder Woman Museum. The event sells one of a kind pieces of art and comic memorabilia that is contributed by comic book creators all over.
In October 2006-2012, the Wonder Woman Day I-V and Women Of Wonder Day events raised money for Domestic Violence programs in Portland, Oregon, Flemington, New Jersey, and San Antonio, Texas. The five-year combination of auctions of over 1,100 original art pieces, plus collectibles, autograph signings, and photo opportunities garnered spectacular turnouts and five Mayoral Proclamations. 100% of all monies raised during Wonder Woman Day goes to the designated 501(c)3 tax deductible charities.
