Timothy Draper Pays $25,000 For Jim Lee To Paint His Wall

480px-Tim_DraperThe DC We Can Be Heroes – Superman Edition was looking as if it might not quite make it’s $100,000 mark on Indiegogo, raising money for charities associated with the Horn Of Africa, and spearheaded by DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson.

That was before one Timothy Draper donated $25,000 for the top reward of having DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee fly out to paint his wall.

Draper is a venture capitalist, known for early investments in Hotmail and Skype, and for first using the term “viral marketing” to describe how ideas can spread on the internet.

You know, I wonder if Draper wants a mural of DC comic characters. Or if he just wants his wall painted a nice shade of green.

The fund now stands perilously close to hitting it’s $100,000 target, currently at $99,835 with four days to go.

UPDATE: It’s made it!
