While interviewing Josh Turner at the VetteCity Con, he told me about this amazing charity that now has so much of my attention!! POPS (ya know them big head action figures by Funko, I’m so addicted to) for Patients gifts children in hospitals all over America (children appropriate POPS). And they have some HUGE help!
What an awesome business to be in huh!
Here is a brief bio of the company:
Tall Man Toys and Comics is our headquarters in Knoxville, Tennessee.
We have been doing this, publicly, since August 2016. Privately since early 2016
POPS for Patients was started and still ran by Randy and Krysten .
They started giving Funko POP! toys to the hospitals where their own kids have spent a lot of time and it snowballed once we went public.
