The Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance (COVA)

A major impetus for the creation of Cowls and Capes was the July 20 atrocity in Aurora, Colorado.  Too often madmen inflict their insanity on the world without response.  We simply accept that the world the world is a bit darker and move on.  But if there is anything to be learned from the story of Batman, it is that our darkest moments can be our most inspiration, from which something positive is born.

Thus, it is fitting the first featured charity of Cowls and Capes is COVA, the Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance.  COVA, a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization is dedicated to helping victims of crime in Colorado heal and overcome.

COVA is taking donations to help those affected by the movie theater shooting in Aurora, CO.

From the website:

COVA has been asked by Aurora Police Department to coordinate donations for victims of the Aurora mass tragedy. Checks can be made out to COVA and mailed to: 90 Galapago Street, Denver CO, 80223. Please include “Aurora Tragedy” in the memo line. You can also donate online through COVA’s Giving First profile at: “like” us on Facebook for the most current information on how you can help.

After the last news report is filed, for the seventy victims and their families, the recovery, physical and mental, continues.  For months.  For years.  If you can help, please consider doing so.
