Zack Snyder is helping his fans raise funds for suicide prevention, and the campaign has just exceeded $50,000. After Snyder departed Justice League and it was revealed he tragically lost his daughter, Autumn, to suicide, fans of the director have been campaigning for his original cut of the film but also helping to raise funds and raise awareness for suicide prevention.
In numerous previous campaigns, fans raised thousands of dollars. The latest campaign was to raise funds by selling t-shirt designs through Ink To The People, which is where Snyder himself determined to get involved, making a shirt with a enigmatic design that appears to tease particulars of his original plan for the DC Universe.
Thanks to the trendy design and social media signal boost, the shirts started selling like crazy, racking up tens of thousands of dollars for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Jason Momoa posted about the campaign on Instagram, again admiring Snyder for casting him as Aquaman and cheering fans to purchase the shirt:
“I AM AQUAMAN because of Zack Snyder he is a legend in my eyes. He made a justice league T shirt. ALL THE GODS. to support suicide awareness and prevention. Honored to do my part to support my Ohana. I love u Zack and Debbie Link in bio. Aloha j”
The AFSP’s mission is to “save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide,” a mission they research and promote for better means of preventing suicide, give educate the public on mental health problems, and offer support to those who have lost family or loved ones to suicide.
Snyder himself has been mostly silent since his Justice League exit, but after in recent times finishing construction of his new office building and re-branding of his production company, Cruel and Unusual Films to The Stone Quarry, fans can likely anticipate to hear more official news on his next projects shortly.
