Zack Snyder Fans Raise Money for Suicide Prevention Awareness
Jan. 24, 2020
After lackluster reception to the film, fans want Snyder's version, called Snyder's Cut, released. A grassroots campaign is calling for his version of Justice League to be released, and as part of the efforts, people have donated more than $150,000 to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, ScreenRant reported.
Donations have been made through a variety of efforts, including a series of fan-art t-shirts, and social media hashtag campaigns, according to a release from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
As Snyder Cut is gaining in media attention, the amount of charitable efforts have also seen an uptick in support, the outlet reports. In October 2019, more than $110,000 was raised for the organization. Now, increased attention toward Snyder Cut has boosted fundraising efforts further, ScreenRant reported.
According to Twitter user MickD , who claims to be involved with donation efforts, the campaign has added another $46,000 since October.
"Weve recently tabulated all of the fundraising event totals organized and contributed to by @ZackSnyder s community of fans in support of @afspnational. Zacks fans have so far donated over $156,000 to support Suicide Prevention. #ForTheSnyders #WhyWeFight #ReleaseTheSnyderCut ," MickD wrote in a post on January 22.
This increase is likely due to more awareness as celebrities like Ben Affleck have called attention to the Snyder Cut.
