THE HERO FOUNDRY, A Great Children's Charity!

The BAT-BLOG would like for you to take the time to consider this really great Children's Charity called THE HERO FOUNDRY. They collect funds to support librarys all over the US. They distribute comic books & graphic novels for children to learn the joy of reading. They recently had an auction where some generous comic book artists donated original art work & all the proceeds went to new books for locations in New Orleans that were destroyed by Katrina. The BAT-BLOG is proud to support this cause so please help anyway you can. Here's the Official Press Release :
