Not only does the mammoth comic book incorporate the RAM, it also features another significant educational organization: the Edmonton Public Schools Foundation (EPSF), for whom the project was used as a fundraising tool. The story also includes 9 very special Edmontonians whose generous donations secured them a place in history as characters in The Fantastic Amazers! Thanks to them and the dozens of other donors during the event, the project raised $2700 during the weekend to help fund full day kindergarten in targeted areas of Edmonton!
