Funko, in partnership with Make-A-Wish, has announced the newest Pops! With Purpose product assortment featuring Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm characters.  

Each Pop! With Purpose figure sold will feature a designated sticker and box art indicating that Funko has made a charitable donation to the organization. The new collectibles line will be available online and in stores on April 4, leading to World Wish Day on April 29. 

"Funko understands the importance of giving back by supporting causes that are close to the hearts of our employees, fans and the greater community," says Andrew Perlmutter, chief executive officer, Funko. "We are honored to support Make-A-Wish's efforts as they work around the clock to fulfill children's wishes." 

Regardless of sales, Funko will donate $150,000 to Make-A-Wish to help fulfill the life-changing wishes of children with critical illnesses. 

In collaboration with GameStop, Funko will also launch in-store activations for Make-A-Wish recipients at select GameStop stores nationwide during April. 

"World Wish Day is all about the Make-A-Wish community coming together in celebration of wishes that can help kids build the physical and emotional strength needed to fight a critical illness," says Richard K. Davis, president, chief executive officer, Make-A-Wish America. "We are so grateful to have Funko join the celebration and find a fun way to involve a couple of our other key supporters in Disney and GameStop as well." 

The latest Pops! With Purpose product assortment will feature Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Iron Man, Spider-Man, BB-8 bobblehead and more. 

Disney has worked with Make-A-Wish for more than 40 years and together have granted more than 145,000 wishes globally.
