The Superheroes of Victoria spend all their time helping others, but now they need help! Faced with an insane BC Hydro bill, our charity needs assistance to pay it.

The Superheroes of Victoria Volunteer Society has been helping families in Victoria for 8 years doing hospital visits, running literacy programs, supporting local public children's events and bringing smiles to the faces of the children of Victoria.

The charity is a completely volunteer-run group that exists to support other local charities and operates primarily on generous in-kind donations of supplies, materials and equipment we need. Cash donations come occasionally, but are typically in response to a specific need that can't be donated in-kind (such as insurance for an event).

Thanks to Hansbraun Investments, for the last 2 1/2 years we have had an office to act as a volunteer resource office to store our super suits, work on costumes & props, and plan & organize charity projects/events.

Our founder and Director, Mark Ashfield, has been paying the office's BC Hydro bill out of his personal finances up to this point, as well as a lot of any additional expenses that have come up.

But this hydro bill is showing our usage at 10 times the rate we used last year with no additional equipment in the office or change in usage since we've moved in. We will be looking into what this spike in usage could possibly stem from, but this bill really took us by surprise and we need help.

We spend all of our time providing a free resource for local charity organizations and community community groups and assisting them in raising funds, so we don't typically do fundraising for ourselves.

Donations will not only help us with utility issues like this, but also in creating new costumes and projects to really make some incredible memories for the children of this island.

Please help us continue to do what we do and provide Superheroes to whomever needs them. You're a Superhero too.
