Marvel Studios © 2016(LOS ANGELES) — In a video that debuted Wednesday, Marvel Studios’ newest hero, Doctor Strange’s Benedict Cumberbatch, introduced a fun new charity initiative. Called Marvel Studios Hero Acts, the studio is asking fans to upload pictures of themselves posing in their best Marvel hero pose, and will trade each snap for $5 that it’ll donate to Save the Children.
The donations, up to a million bucks, will go to learning materials and other supplies for children in Haiti, Nepal and the United States: reaching up to 123,000 children.
If you don’t happen to have a Marvel costume, the website MarvelStudiosHeroActs lets you borrow one of theirs — in the form of picture cut-outs that let you superimpose yourself in the costume of Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme and others.
The initiative runs until December 31. Doctor Strange appears in theaters November 4.
Marvel Studios is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.
