Party with George Pérez, Diana Knight, and Hero!

Friends in Los Angeles:
Check out Collector’s Paradise in Winnetka on Wednesday, September 17! Hero Board of Directors member George Pérez will be at the store from 6-9 p.m. signing copies of Sirens, his great new book from BOOM! Studios! Diana Knight, the model for the Sirens character Niada, will ALSO be on hand!

If you sign up your Ralphs card for Hero (see other post HERE) and come to the event, there are TWO special bonuses:

• Hero will give you a FREE Fantastic Four 100 Project softcover, a $12.99 value! Have George sign your copy on-site!

• Everyone who signs up will also be entered into a raffle to win ORIGINAL art by George Pérez!

And we CANNOT stress this enough: It’s BEST to sign up for the Ralphs program IN ADVANCE! You can print off a screenshot or show us you’re signed up on your phone or similar mobile device. Proof of enrollment looks like the below, and any date after Sep. 2, 2014 showing “A Commitment To Our Roots” (Hero’s corporate name) is eligible!


On September 1, Ralphs grocery stores wipes the slate clean on its “Community Reward” program, and we need to build back from Square One!

The Ralphs Rewards card is your standard grocery store “club card” that gets you discounts and whatnot. But you can ALSO register it with a Ralphs-approved charity, and EVERY time you shop and use the card, Ralphs will kick in a small percentage to the charity of your choice. It costs you, the consumer, NOTHING. It’s just Ralphs kicking in a couple bucks to good causes.

And yes, The Hero Initiative is one of those Ralphs-approved charities, and yes, we need YOU to re-register your card for Hero, which is easy as pie (tho’ not quite as tasty):

1) Sign in to with your email and password
1a) If you have not created an account, create one now! Takes about 60 seconds!

2) Click on “My Account,” the orange box at the top of the page
2a) Click on “Account Settings”

3) Pan down to “Community Rewards” at the bottom of the right column.

3a) Hit “edit” or “enroll” to reset yourself for Hero Initiative or to sign up for the first time!

4) Now enroll! When signing up, our NPO # (non-profit organization #) is: 80680, and we're under our corporate name, "A Commitment To Our Roots." Don't let it throw ya!
4a) Click “Save” at bottom

5) Now go get a pie.

Seriously, folks, if you do this once, we get a few nickels every time you shop, and multiplied by a San Diego Comic-Con full of people, it’s the best, easiest way we’ve found to raise funds. Totally painless. And hot dammit, you need bologna and Q-Tips anyway!

This applies to Ralphs, Foods Co. and Food 4 Less stores in Southern California, Nevada, Illinois, and Indiana. So if you’re in those necks of those woods, hop to it. I thank you kindly.
