Every year Dragon Con champions the cause of a designated charity. Organizations selected in the past have represented a wide range of community services, including support for families facing lupus, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes and heart disease, assistance for the homeless, and community food banks. This year, Literacy Action Inc. has been designated the official Dragon Con charity of 2018. Literacy Action’s mission is to “build better futures for undereducated adults by teaching literacy, life, and work skills that empower them to reach their highest potential.” For more information on Literacy Action visit literacyaction.org.
In support of the Literacy Action mission, Dragon Con is hosting a book drive and the Costuming Track is helping to collect new and gently-used books at all reading levels that can become a part of the Literacy Action library. If you’d like to help, please consider donating books to Literacy Action. We are especially looking forward to receiving books on all things costume and crafting related. From works of fiction like “The Tailor of Panama” to Jim Henson biographies, we will happily accept all crafting and costuming themed books! Books can be donated at the Costuming Track on the 3rd floor of the Atlanta Hilton during Dragon Con. Donations can also be made via mail until Monday, August 20th (email us for shipping instructions). For more ways to help, visit our 2018 charities page.
Thank you for your support!
