In 2018, The Farooqi Brothers teamed up with the Black Panther Challenge to take 400 kids from an underserved area in Bronx, NY to see Black Panther. Raising $5000 thanks to all of your support and help, the event was a success. The #BlackPantherChallenge was an initiative launched by Frederick Joseph to raise money to take Harlem children to see Black Panther in theaters. He opened the call for others nationwide to join in and start a GoFundMe in their community to take more kids to watch Black Panther in the theater.
After the film, The Farooqi Bros spoke with students from a middle school in Bronx, NY about Black Panther and the how the money was raised. All 400 students walked out of the screening with Black Panther T-Shirts and Posters, courtesy of Erik Davis, a friend of the Farooqi Brothers and Managing Editor of Fandango
Black Panther is an event where DC and Marvel fan lines don’t apply. Everyone can get behind this initiative and do something special for these kids. While we are DC fans at heart, ComicBook Debate is all in on fundraising for this monumental film.
To date, nearly 100 campaigns around the nation have raised over $100,000, helping thousands of kids see the movie next month. Donations have come in from all 50 states and 15 countries around the world.
