(Nashville, Tenn.) June 28, 2012—Following the successful auction of his “Han Solo Carbonite Desk,” which raised more than $10,000 for charity in 2010, Casting Crowns’ frontman and movie memorabilia collector Mark Hall is at it again. Currently, Hall is auctioning his one-of-a-kind “Marvel Superhero Desk,” inspired by box office hit “The Avengers,” now in theaters, with all proceeds going to World Vision’s WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) program.

The desk was created by Tom Spina Designs, a New York-based company specializing in the creation of custom sculpture, themed furniture and the restoration and display of original movie props. It comes fully outfitted with an Iron Man helmet, arc reactor that lights up, Thor's hammer, Hawkeye’s arrows with lights, a gamma vault, Captain America's shield, and Nick Fury's gun, badge, and I.D. Bidding will begin from July 3 and runs through July 13. Visit

Money raised from the sale of the desk will be donated to World Vision’s WASH program. Every day thousands of children die of preventable water and sanitation related diseases. This donation will help save children the suffering caused by parasites, worms, dysentery and diarrhea as well as provide families in poverty with access to clean water through:

-- Deep wells that supply safe water
-- Storage containers for rainwater
-- Piping systems to irrigate crops and improve access to clean water
-- Purification equipment to treat water contaminated by bacteria and other waterborne disease-carriers
-- Latrines and hand-washing stations to protect clean water sources and improve children’s health
