The cast and crew of Batman: The Animated Series have banded together to raise funds for Puerto Rico relief on the auction website Celebrities Who Give, where they’re auctioning off signed limited-edition hats.
According to the auction’s official description,
Bid to win an AUTOGRAPHED hat signed Kevin Conroy & the stars of Batman the Animated Series! This ONE OF A KIND hat was issued by Warner Brothers to commemorate the 25yr anniversary of Batman the Animated Series and is in extremely limited quantity. The hat is signed by Kevin Conroy (The ORIGINAL voice of Batman), Tara Strong (The voice of Barbara Gordon/Batgirl in the New Adventures with Batman and Robin), Bruce Tim (Creator of the modern DC Comics animated franchise), & Alan Burnett (Producer of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm) & features a Batman design.
In an attached video, Kevin Conroy — the voice of Batman — explains how the cast and crew obtained the hats and why they chose to donate them to charity. “We were recently at New York Comic-Con,” Conroy recalls. “Afterwards, Warner Brothers had made these special hats… We thought, ‘Wait a minute. What would Batman do with these hats?’ He would do something good with these hats because he’s such a force of good in the world. What can we do with these hats? We thought, ‘Wait a minute. Puerto Rico is in trouble. Our fellow citizens there are going to take a long time to build that island.’ So we thought, ‘Why don’t we try auctioning these hats?'”
“So dig into your wallets, get as much money as you can and bid for Puerto Rico. Do it,” Conroy says in his Batman voice at the end of the video.
The auction ends October 31 at 12:00 am. As of writing, the current bid is at $360 USD.
