For those who don't follow the world of comic books you might have missed out on the story of Mike Meyer. The short of it is that Mike lives on special-needs disability pension, and he's been on it for the past twenty years. He's also an avid Superman fan with a prized collection of comics and memorabilia. Two weeks ago that collection was stolen by a former co-worker. You can read the full story here. Well Rick Diehl over at His Name is Studd is calling for a campaign for Mike:
I contacted the reporter who wrote the original piece who put me in touch with Mr. Meyers family.
They let me know that they still have hopes of recovering Mike's collection and that the police are taking this seriously, which was good to know.
He also let me know that if we had the time, that maybe sending Mike a card or even a drawing with Superman on it, would be something that would really make his week.
So come on gang, take the time and buy the stamp and send Mike something with Superman on it.
Here is the address....
Mike Meyer c/o Bill Smith
7041 Kingsbury Blvd.
St. Louis, Mo. 63130
Let's do something nice for Mike, it will make you feel good too.
Sometimes something small can really go a long way.
