Do you want an official Spider-Man suit that was actually worn during Spider-Man: Homecoming? Do you also want to help a great cause? If both of your answers are in the affirmative, then you're in luck.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment announced today that they are auctioning off one of the Spidey suits actually worn by Tom Holland during the filming of the most recent Spider-Man film. The item will be added to the ScreenBid online auction site, and all of the proceeds will benefit underprivileged children through the Toys for Tots Foundation.
Retired Marine Colonel Ted Silvester, Vice President of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, said in a statement, "Finding a present under the tree on Christmas morning is an experience every child deserves. With this generous support, we will be able to fulfill the Christmas holiday dreams of less fortunate children who otherwise might be forgotten."
Interested in attaining this one of a kind item? Bidding started today, and you can join in by registering at Screenbid's site. Bidding closes on Monday, Dec. 18, 2017 at 9 a.m. EST. Just in case online auctions aren't your thing, a SECOND official suit will also be available by way of a special sweepstakes through the official Spider-Man: Homecoming Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Launching today, the official sweepstakes will remain open throughout the holidays, closing on Jan. 2 -- giving fans one more opportunity to bring an official Spidey suit home. Want to enter?

Not only are the suits being donated, but SPHE is also donating DVD's of Spider-Man: Homecoming to the outreach program, a gift that is bound to delight many children this holiday season.
According to the press release, the Marine Toys for Tots program is "a 70-year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve," which "provides happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence ,and a positive memory for a lifetime. It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community."
Sounds like an effort truly worthy of Spider-Man himself. There is no word on whether the official suits come complete with the computerized voice of Jennifer Connelly, but for such a great cause, it's worth it either way.
