Missed out on getting passes to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con?
Hoteloween gave you a rock?
There’s still a FEW chances to go to the con, and one of them is this sweepstakes being sponsored by Traveling Stories and IDW Publishing.
Traveling Stories is a charity that helps give kids a love of books by the fourth grade to help them get an edge up on literacy. As one of the statistics posted on the site points out:
Children with the lowest reading scores account for 33% of all students, yet they account for 63% of all children who do not graduate from high school.
In order to publicize their efforts to open story tents around the US, Travelling Stories and IDW are running a sweepstakes: for a donation of $10 you get 20 chances to win the following prize:
The grand prize is 2 four-day passes to SDCC, airfare within the U.S., hotel accommodation, a meet-n-greet with Kevin Eastman, and tickets to the Wynonna Earp cast party.
Traveling Stories is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that helps kids fall in love with reading by the 4th grade. In America, 82% of children from low-income families cannot read proficiently by the fourth grade. As a result, they are up to 15x more likely to drop out of school, leaving them unqualified for 90% of jobs. Traveling Stories provides free literacy tutoring through a mobile StoryTent program and effectively helps thousands of children become better readers every year.
