It’s pretty well-known how present Arrow star Stephen Amell is on social media, whether it’s Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. He’s always posting updates from the set or funny pictures of him and his fellow cast members. However, there’s one purpose that Amell uses social media for that may go unnoticed by some and that is giving to charity. In the past, Amell has raised countless amounts of money for different causes, and now, just yesterday, he posted a new video to his Facebook page, stating that he would be auctioning off nine of his season two Arrow scripts for charity.
In the video, which you can watch by clicking here, Amell promises to give away scripts from the first nine episodes of season two of Arrow (which include, as Amell says in the video, “The Scientist” and “Three Ghosts,” the two episodes that introduce Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen, aka The Flash, who is getting his own show on The CW this fall). All of these scripts will be autographed by Amell, Gustin, and the entire cast of Arrow.
While there has not been an exact charity announced yet, Amell says that he is considering all of the charitable foundations suggested by his followers in the comment sections on his video and that the specific charity will be chosen before the auction is over. If you want to bid on any of the season two Arrow scripts, you can do so by heading over to eBay.
With the enormous success and popularity that Arrow (which returns for season three on Wednesday, Oct. 8th on The CW) has had over the past two years, it’s great to see that the guy at the center of it all, Stephen Amell, is using his fame and notoriety as a platform to do good. His continuing efforts to raise money and give to charity, all while interacting with his fans, make him, not Oliver Queen, the true superhero of Arrow.
