We like Traveling Stories, a lot – this is an charitable organisation whose sole remit is to encourage more kids to get into literacy through book swaps, open air book clubs, school and library programs and much more, and we couldn’t be prouder of the amazing work that they do.
Last year, the charity partnered with Comic-Con International and San Diego’s own IDW Publishing to put together a pretty impressive sweepstakes prize pack, and we were more than happy to help spread the word. For 2018, the Sweepstake has returned for a second year… and they’ve done themselves proud with the booty once again.
Note: this Sweepstakes is not just open to U.S residents, it’s a worldwide opportunity so, if you haven’t landed SDCC badges, hotel rooms or even airfare if you just about manage to doggy-paddle to t’States, this could be the prize package you’ve been looking for!

Traveling Stories is a 501(c)3 nonprofit empowering kids to outsmart poverty by falling in love with reading by the 4th grade.
Our mission is to empower kids to outsmart poverty by providing the literacy and money management skills they need to become productive members of society.
We believe that books are a necessity, not a luxury. The ability to read and write is a human right. We are not afraid to look foolish in our effort to outsmart poverty. We believe there is more than one kind of poverty and more than one kind of hunger. It is important to feed a child’s stomach, but we must not forget their mind and imagination.
Through our mobile StoryTent program we teach kids money management skills and help them fall in love with reading by the 4th grade. At the StoryTents, kids pick out books that interest them and read out loud with a volunteer. For every book read they earn a book buck, which can be redeemed for prizes. We currently serve over 3,000 local kids a year by our weekly programs in El Cajon, City Heights and Imperial Beach.
We serve kids ages 2-12 years old as from birth to 3rd grade, kids are learning how to read, and from 4th grade on they are reading to learn. Kids in low-income households who can’t read proficiently by 4th grade are 15 times more likely to drop out of school. Sadly, in the U.S., 82% of disadvantaged kids can’t read at grade level.
