[277 days 12 hours ago]
Kids Need to Read is excited to announce that Team Winchester http://teamwinchester.com/wp/ (a fan effort to promote the CW series Supernatural) has adopted Kids Need to Read as one of their official charities! We are thrilled to have their support, and they have already donated a VERY exciting item for us to auction.
We met the leaders of Team Winchester at the Phoenix Cactus Comicon in January. They are very enthusiastic and we love the support they show for our project. Here are a few words they shared with us:
Since this is the first joint effort between Team Winchester and Kids Need to Read, we wanted to write a little something to tell you guys who we are and what we’d like to do. Team Winchester is a fan effort to promote The CW series Supernatural. We understand the value of well-written television shows and the power that we, the fans, have in deciding their fate. Because of this, we have made it our mission to mobilize the fans to help keep our favorite show on the air. In addition, we have found that the Supernatural fan-base is made up of a lot of wonderful people who really care about making a difference. Therefore, we at Team Winchester have decided to introduce a charity aspect to our mission. This effort is perhaps best summarized in our charity slogan: “You don’t need to hunt things to save people.” We hope that we will be able to bring a lot more attention to Kids Need to Read, a wonderful organization filled with caring people trying to promote children’s literacy. Many people feel that television and the movies are killing literacy these days, but we see no reason why these various forms of media can’t work in conjunction. So, we’d like to get some TV show fans behind this worthy cause and help get some books to the kids!
Kids Need to Read is happy to be working with Team Winchester. We would like to thank Ivy, Diane and all of Team Winchester for supporting us in our mission to place books into the hands of kids who need them!
