The Jawiin Charity Drive for Service Members was founded in 2015 by Jason Inman (Jupiter Jet, Super Soldiers), a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and a Ringo Award nominated comic book writer. By partnering with Operation Gratitude, the Jawiin Charity Drive has sent over 144,300 comic books to service members overseas, wounded warriors recovering in hospitals worldwide, and their families back stateside including thousands of care packages. Jawiin stands for (Ja)son (Wi)lliam (In)man and covers the brand of Jason Inman’s podcasts and videos.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1 - In previous years, this was a campaign to send comics to Operation Gratitude for Care Packages. What happened?
Because of complications with Covid 19 and the USPS, we decided it was best to turn the event into a virtual one. Hence the virtual event was created to give Operation Gratitude the funds to package and ship their care packages for our service members.
2 - Can I still donate comics and graphic novels to Operation Gratitude?
YES! Go to https://www.operationgratitude.com/product-donation/ for full details on how to donate them. We will not be counting them towards the charity drive this year.
