As you all know, Stan Lee pacts the way other people breathe. Here’s a new one — a contest with online community MASScanvas to design a T-shirt; a portions of the proceeds of the winning design will go to the John Wayne Cancer Institute. Winners get their very own congratulatory video from Stan, as well.
Starting Thursday, November 4, fans can submit designs for the ‘WORLD OF HEROES’ challenge until November 20 at masscanvas.com. ALL entries will be featured on masscanvas.com, the only requirement being they reflect the theme of “WORLD OF HEROES.” Entrants and fans can comment on designs throughout the challenge and VOTE for the top 20 designs. On December 8, Stan Lee will choose 5 winning tees (each receiving a $1,000 cash prize), from the top 20, that he feels best represent the theme. The 5 winning tees will be custom printed in limited quantity, individually hand-numbered, and sold in support of the charitable cause.
“The word “HERO” can mean different things to different people, so be as creative as you can!” says Stan Lee in his video announcing the challenge.
Stan Lee will be hands-on throughout the campaign, and will appear in person November 5 & 6 at Comikaze Expo in LA (where Stan is Guest of Honor) providing signed shirts and special giveaways.
Stan will personally congratulate the winners via video on December 8.
