Imagine if Marvel made a movie about nonprofit superheroes

Hello everyone, my name is Emily Rangel and I am a student at California State University Monterey Bay CSUMB. I am currently going into my senior year and work as an intern at NPC through my field training program in Collaborative Human and Health Services.

Vu is once again posting on his blog Nonprofit AF. Vu came back with an interesting twist to one typical nonprofit post; there are scenes of what a Marvel movie would look like if it were about nonprofit superheroes. Read the full article here.

While reading this article, I truly realized how humbling nonprofit work is. I mean, the people who work and run nonprofits are typically doing so much work behind the scenes that they do not get the superhero recognition they deserve. While nonprofits will host private events to thank their team and staff, they are not publicly thanked like musicians or actors. I know what everyone will say “what about the Nobel peace prize” while yes, that is a great honor! The world does not tune in to watch like the Grammy’s or the Oscars. So why not a superhero movie about nonprofits? Or a public event highlighting the true superheroes; although nonprofit employees don’t wear capes, step by step, they are improving the world environmentally, economically, and socially.
