The children of Harlem are receiving a gift from from a few helpful donors.

A crowdfunding campaign was started to help children in Harlem see Black Panther next month with the donor list including a few celebs.

The fundraiser has so far raised $24,000, more than its $10,000 goal, with J.J. Abrams and his wife Katie McGrath contributing $10,000. The extra proceeds are to be donated to the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem.

Campaign organizer Frederick Joseph stated, “The release of Marvel’s film the Black Panther is a rare opportunity for young students (primarily of color) to see a black major cinematic and comic book character come to life.”

“This representation is truly fundamental for young people, especially those who are often underserved, unprivileged, and marginalized both nationally and globally.”

The money raised will send approximately 300 kids to see Black Panther and even cover snacks and chaperones.

Black Panther premieres Feb. 16.
