The stars and filmmakers of the MCU have come out in support of Marvel Studios Hero Acts. Marvel announced the return of its charity initiative yesterday, this time in support of Starlight Children’s Foundation. Robert Downey, Jr., Chadwick Boseman, and more are all posting pictures online that you really should “like.”
Several Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy have posted pictures of themselves with a care package of Marvel merchandise that they’ll be donating to the kids at Starlight. The goal was for their social media posts combine for 1 million likes, at which point Marvel Studios and Disney would donate $250,000 to Starlight.
Downey and Tom Holland got over 600,000 likes (and counting) each just from their Instagram posts, so the collective goal has been met and the donation will be made!

It is so awesome to see Marvel stars, filmmakers, executives, and fans come together to support kids who really need it. Hero Acts is such a wonderful initiative and I hope Marvel Studios keeps it going for many years to come.
