Jake Johnson, one of the Spider-Man voice actors from the movie Into the Spider Verse will send your kids words of encouragement for free. The actor announced the initiative on Instagram, pointing out that many children are stuck in quarantine and he wanted to offer a way to help.
“Since the quarantine a lot of parents have DM’ed me saying they’ve been watching Spiderverse with their kids. A lot,” the actor wrote. “So, here’s my idea. If your child is home from school and wants a quick encouraging message from Peter B. [Parker], then send me an email with their name and I’ll try to send over a short voice note.”
He continued to say he may not get to everyone and apologized for that fact while encouraging people to “#stayhome.”
To get the voice message from the Into the Spider-Verse voice actor, send an email to email@example.com with your child’s name, and you may just get a message back from Spider-Man.
