Valentine's Day Comics Sale plus Charitable Giving Opportunity
I want to begin today by thanking everyone who wrote to us in support of my efforts to
help the elderly, disabled and poor in Denver through my participation in the
Imperial Court System.
I do wish to emphasize, however, that of vital importance to my efforts has been the ongoing
financial participation of the customers of
Mile High Comics.
Not only have we received enormous support from our customers who shop with us in Denver,
but also an extraordinary number of remarkably generous comics fans from around the world
have helped us to make a difference in thousands of lives. Working together, we have made
the world just a little bit better for those who are in desperate need.
Some of the homeless in Denver
While I deeply appreciate what we have accomplished to this point, I now want to move our
charitable giving efforts to a new level. I was finally able to find the time this week to
finalize wholesale bids from a Denver-based supplier of toiletries to our local hotels and
motels. They offer single-serving toiletries of all kinds, which are always in very short supply
at all of our local charities and homeless shelters. I cannot begin to count the number of times
that I have been asked (begged...) by local non-profits to find them some soap, shampoo, etc.
for their clients. Simply put, one of the greatest impediments to people pulling themselves out
of abject poverty is personal hygiene. Not only does a poor appearance oftentimes lead to rejection
for employment, but a failure to be able to stay clean also destroys people's self-esteem, which
can lead them to giving up any hope. It is a sad cycle which the injection of mere pennies in
toiletries could help to solve.
Nicole Murray-Ramirez Queen Mother I of the Americas portrait
All of the above having been said, my newly-created role as the
Imperial Crown Prince of the Americas in the
Imperial Court System,
I have decided that my primary focus will be to help provide mechanisms for everyone who wishes
to do so to easily participate in helping those in need. With that thought in mind, I contacted
Nicole Murray-Ramirez this morning, our Queen Mother I of the Americas, and also the Chairperson
City of San Diego Human Relations Commission.
I asked her if I might create a new group called "Nicole's Angels", which would consist of people
willing to sponsor a case of toiletries for the poor in Denver and Albuquerque. Queen Mother was
thrilled at the prospect of so many people being helped in her name, so here are some options for
sponsorship for those of you who might wish to become one of "Nicole's Angels":
Toothbrushes 144/case $13.68 9 cents each
Bottled Water 200 bottles $24.95 6 cents each
Personal Razors 144/case $25.97 17 cents each
Soap bars (small) 1,000/case $32.00 3 cents each
Lotion packets 1,000/case $39.33 4 cents each
Shampoo/Cond. 1,000/case $39.33 4 cents each
Maxi Pads 500/case $44.67 9 cents each
Tampax Tampons 500/case $73.33 15 cents each
Toothpaste tubes 240/case $77.33 32 cents each
are now available for order via our
Mile High Comics website.
If you add up the sum of all the items, we can provide a homeless woman out on the streets with one
of each toiletry item, plus a bottle of water, for 99 cents. Can you see why working together to buying
bulk makes sense? Since approximately 85% of our clients are male, the feminine toiletries will obviously
go much further, but I think that my point is valid: for under $1 each we can help a remarkably large
number of people.
Chuck and Nanette
I will close today's newsletter by quickly mentioning that, in addition to all of the charitable work that
we do, we also operate a
great comic book company.
Our 40% off SWEETHEART! codeword sale is in effect for
you this week, and it helps you tremendously to save when ordering
If you cannot afford at this time to become one of "Nicole's Angels", please consider simply placing a
order with us as a sign of support. My long-suffering and beloved wife, Nanette, fully supports me in my
efforts to help the poor, but she does occasionally whisper in my ear that we do still have to sell a
few comic books each day, or we might well be right out there on the streets, too. Any help that you
could provide to us would be most appreciated.
Happy Valentine's Day!
