"Kids love comics, kids love superheroes. And if you're in a situation where maybe you're suffering a little bit or having a hard time, a superhero is someone you can look up to to make you feel better," said Kyle Northrop, owner of Seann's Anime and Comics.

In addition to the funds raised, the shops are donating books, coloring book, crayons and more to the children at Toledo Children's Hospital.
