Spider-Man says Stand Up To Cancer and who are you to tell him “no?”
In an interesting twist that feels weird, but I have a hard time arguing with, Sony and The Amazing Spider-Man are teaming up with Stand Up To Cancer to make a day of service on Tuesday June 26th.
“Day of service” is what my Boy Scout leader would likely call it. They claim it’s a day in favor of volunteerism, and if you’re in NYC, Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, and Denis Leary will be on hand to help out.
On the 26th, people in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Houston, Miami, and Atlanta can log on to www.BeAmazing2012.com to register for specific volunteer activities in their area. There will be a wide range of volunteer opportunities in each city and some way for everyone to help their community.
In New York, volunteers will be able to help out at the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy, or a children’s program at Common Cents in Staten Island, or a community garden in the Bronx, or lend a hand to the Leary Firefighters Foundation, among other projects.
If you volunteer, word of co-branded t-shirts about being Amazing and a hero are promised, you can also just head to the website and donate to Stand Up To Cancer if you are – understandably – busy on a June Tuesday.
But there is power in numbers and we all know what comes with Great Power, right?
