Wizard World is in Portland February 22–24, 2019.
Wizard World Teams with Portland's Transition Projects On Comic Book Program
Wizard World is proud to team with Portland-based Transition Projects to help put comic books, graphic novels and other reading material in the hands of those transitioning from homelessness to housing in the Portland metro area, for Portland’s most vulnerable citizens including veterans, women, and people with disabilities. Wizard World is asking fans to bring graphic novels, comics, science fiction books, or any other similar materials to Wizard World Portland on February 22-24 and leave them in a specially marked donation receptacle near the Special Guest Registration desk.
As a Thank You, fans who donate two or more items to Transition Projects during Wizard World Portland will receive a free pre-autographed celebrity photo from a selection of previous Wizard World guests. These photographs are available to fans on a first-come, first-served basis while supply lasts, one per family donation per day, at the full discretion of Wizard World.
Fans can learn more about Transition Projects at https://www.tprojects.org.
