Current Total Donations:
Over the last three years, City of Heroes players have donated over $29,000 to charity through the Real World Hero charity drive!

Not familiar with Real World Hero? Well, read on heroes!
With your support, RealWorldHero.com
will aid the following charities this holiday season and 100% of your donations will go directly to these non-profit organizations.
- Child's Play - A community based charity grown and nurtured from the game culture and industry. Since it's founding by Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins of the online comic strip Penny Arcade in 2003, Child's Play has donated more than $9 million dollars in toys, games, books, and cash for sick children in hospitals across the U.S. and the world.

- Donate Games - Founded upon the belief that people can change the world by simply donating their unwanted video games, Donate Games is a charity dedicated to funding research and support for children and their families of “orphan” diseases and the millions of Americans affected by them.
