In honor of the first responders on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, Funko is excited to announce the new line of Pop! Heroes to commemorate the nurses and doctors who are giving their all to help treat patients. In association with this collection, Funko has made a donation to GlobalGiving, a 501c non-profit organization based in the United States that provides a global crowdfunding platform for grassroots charitable projects. It is the first and largest global crowdfunding community that connects nonprofits, donors, and companies in nearly every country around the world.
GlobalGiving makes it possible for local organizations to access the funding, tools, training, and support they need to become more effective at making our world a better place. Since 2002, more than 950,000 donors to GlobalGiving have raised more than $430 million to support more than 24,000 projects in 170 countries. They currently work with 300 partners in 76 countries, on what they say is most important in their communities, whether it is: personal protective equipment, sanitation, and/or meals.
