in collaboration with Color Compton, has released two limited-edition Pops! With Purpose items featuring two Los Angeles-based personalities, Venus Williams and Eazy E. The collection will benefit Color Compton, an organization that strives to empower all students in the Compton community by sharing the histories of people of color and introducing art as a form of communication. Participating students gain leadership skills and play a critical role in community activism. As part of its philanthropic initiative, Funko will donate $10 to Color Compton for every Pop! sold from the collection. The figures are available for pre-sale exclusively on Funko.com.
