The Captain Marvel Challenge Aims to Empower Girls with Free Showings—& You Can Help

A groundbreaking superhero is about to hit theaters as Marvel’s first female Captain Marvel graces the big screen—and one organization wants to ensure that every young girl has the chance to witness it. The Captain Marvel challenge GoFundMe is raising money to make it happen.

Girls Inc. and We Have Stories have partnered up to help send girls across the country to see this inspiring new superhero in theaters for free. We Have Stories, headed by founder Frederick Joseph, is the same organization that raised funds to help send kids all over the world to see Black Panther last year.

“The lead character, Carol Danvers, is not only a superhero, she’s also an athlete and fighter pilot,” Joseph said in a statement. “She is a prime example of the fact that women can do anything, and there isn’t a better person to be playing her than Brie Larson, who has been one of the faces of numerous feminist movements such as TIME’S UP. I am inspired by Brie and women around the globe and look forward to sending as many girls as possible to see this film.”

The GoFundMe has already out-raised its initial goal of $20,000, raising $22,000 in just over a week. Since the movie doesn’t hit theaters until March, there’s still time to get that figure closer to the $800,000 that was raised for Black Panther screenings.
