A nonprofit to help the victims of the Aurora Theater Shooting 7/20/12


Aurora Rise started out as a weekend-long benefit event supported heavily by the comic book and entertainment industry. Since then, it’s grown into so much more.

Our initial fund-raising weekend of August 25-26 was intended to be a one-time deal, but it also brought overwhelming results we could have never imagined. Over $20, 000 was raised in two days! Shortly thereafter, it came to light that there are victims from this tragedy who are still waiting for relief. And it became apparent we needed to do more.

Fact is, there are victims of the theater shooting who still need help, even with small daily tasks. We feel that as long as innocent people are still hurting, we are going to continue to raise money and help as many as we can.
