About the Foundation:
The foundation established in 2009 in Christopher’s memory offers Christopher’s Comic Book Inspirations—comic creations workshops— to underserved children in Paterson NJ. Why comics? Because learning to create comics is fun, helps kids build their self-esteem and reminds them of the power of their imaginations. Christopher started his own comic series when he was 8 and undergoing treatment. He even sold his comics on the front lawn. Children who participate in Christopher’s Comic Book Inspirations learn to create comics just like the experts from Alex Simmons, professional comic book author, who has written for Archie, DC Comics and more. During the past 14 years we’ve offered these workshops to over 1200 children through the support of our donors. The Christopher Barron Live Life Foundation is a public 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. EIN# 26-4210986
