The people have spoken. #BlackPanther is the #1 movie in the world.

'Black Panther' Breaks Records: many in the industry continue to buzz that the Marvel pic has a shot at hitting $1 billion.

To date, over 500 GoFundMe Campaigns

After raising over $40,000 on GoFundMe to take Harlem children to see Black Panther in theaters, New York resident Frederick Joseph launched the #BlackPantherChallenge. He called on others to start a GoFundMe in their community to take more kids to watch Black Panther in the theater. The GoFundMe community has answered the call.

Frederick Joseph says, the #BlackPantherChallenge is “the largest overall GoFundMe campaign in the site’s history for an entertainment event or experience.

“All children deserve to believe they can save the world, go on exciting adventures, or accomplish the impossible. I am grateful that all of you have answered the call and are taking action to help more kids watch their heroes on the big screen,” said Frederick Joseph. “Let’s keep pushing forward. If you’re a teacher, buy tickets for your entire classroom. If you’re a coach, take your team. If you're a community leader, do some organizing and get the kids and parents in your community to the theater.”
