IAmElemental’s Courage Battles Childhood Cancer

courage-battle-childhood-cancerIn support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month this September, IAmElemental, creator of the first female action figures designed specifically for children, is bringing its superheroes to the fight against pediatric cancer. The company’s popular Courage Core Power female action figures – modeled on Joan of Arc and embodying Bravery, Energy, Honesty, Industry, Enthusiasm, Persistence and Fear – are being deployed to comfort and inspire children and their families affected by these devastating diseases.

During September, IAmElemental is conducting a Buy One, Donate One program for every Courage Core Power female action figure purchased in the company’s online store. The company will distribute one figure to a child affected by cancer for each figure purchased. The 6.5″ Core Power female action figure, which retails for $24.99, is a fusion of all Elements in Series 1/Courage.  She features more than 30 points of articulation and includes removable accessories including a helmet, armor, flaming Energy sword and Courage shield.

IAmElemental’s Series 2/Wisdom female action figures, with ancient Alexandrian STEM pioneer Hypatia as the muse, include Creativity, Ingenuity, Curiosity, Logic, Exploration, Mastery and Oblivion and are scheduled to ship in fall 2016.
