Here’s something that I thought was pretty cool at first glance, but when I read their “Our Story” page, I knew this was something special that I had to share! The site is called Defending Our Myths and Heroes, and they sell artwork based on our favorite shows and video games from childhood!
However, that’s not why I realized I had to share this page. I’ll let the artist take it from here!
How We Got StartedIn 2012 I became aware of four individuals who were diagnosed with different types of cancer. All four of these gentlemen were professional firefighters, but more importantly they were friends. I knew of a fund raising event that was being thrown in their honor. I wanted to contribute, so I drew a picture of three Transformers who transformed into different pieces of fire apparatus and offered it in a silent auction. The piece raised a significant amount of money for these gentlemen, so I decided to continue with these sorts of efforts. In 2013 I started DMH (Defending Our Myths And Heroes) with my goal being to represent the beloved mythologies of my childhood authentically, and give back to our modern day heroes. My promise is that no less than 10% of our profits will be donated to our modern day heroes. In 2013 we donated to the NFFF (National Fallen Firefighters Foundations), in 2014 we donated to C.O.P.S. (Concerns Of Police Survivors), and we have yet to finalize the charity for 2015.
