Be a Superhero Campaign

Is There a Superhero in Your Life?

They may not leap tall buildings in a single bound or catch the bad guys, but there are superheroes amongst us - everyday, walk-around kinds of superheroes who inspire possibility, exploration and joy in the people in their lives.

If you know a dad or granddad who is a superhero to the children in his life, help his "virtue" reach even further this Father's Day with a donation in his name to the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh's Be a Superhero Campaign. The Museum created this campaign three years ago to ensure that economically disadvantaged children and families can visit the Museum and enjoy experiences that spark creativity, curiosity and a love of learning. A gift of $10 supports one child’s admission, while $100 supports admission for 10 children - so everyone can be a superhero to a child in need.

To honor the amazing fathers in your life with a gift to the Be a Superhero Campaign, just click here to donate or call (412) 322-5058, x241.

P.S. Since even superheroes have to eat, you might consider giving the dad in your life a very special dinner at Casbah restaurant on June 23! Learn more here.
