Regular Beguiling customers already know how enthused we are about contributing the vintage comics that are on display in the extraordinary “Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters” exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
In the course of the show’s otherwise festive opening week, GDT has asked everyone to consider making a donation in support of earthquake relief in his native Mexico. (In September, the country was devastated by several powerful earthquakes.)
We already have a lot to be thankful about this Thanksgiving, and we’ll be showing our gratitude to GDT and the AGO for their ongoing support by running an in-store fundraiser. This Thanksgiving long weekend, The Beguiling will donate 100% of the sticker price of any one graphic novel purchased Sunday or Monday (Oct 8-9) to Ambulante, Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal’s crowdfunding campaign, and to UNICEF’s relief efforts in Mexico.
That’s right: We’ll be donating the entire value of a (1) graphic novel of your choice purchased on either day to charity. If you’ve been eyeing a new read, now’s the time. Drop by on Sunday or Monday and join us in supporting Mexico earthquake relief!
Not in Toronto this weekend? Donate directly to the campaigns here:
The Beguiling will be open Thanksgiving Sunday from noon to 6pm and holiday Monday from 11am-7pm.
TERMS: Limit one book per customer. Must be a book published prior to September 15, 2017. In store only, on Sunday October 8 and Monday October 9, 2017.
