ComicBooks For Kids!
ComicBooks For Kids realizes that there are times that children will need to be in hospitals or cancer centers. While we cannot take away the reason that the child is in the hospital, for a period of time we can (with a comic book) allow them to be kids again. Through the power of storytelling, kids can fight monsters and villains, become a prince or princess or thrill to the exploits of their favorite super hero. While they are reading the comic book (or perhaps having someone read it to them), they forget all the reasons they are in the hospital. For that period of time, they can get transported to the imaginary worlds that comic books provide.View Website

Inventing the concept of “traveling” fan conventions, Creation has brought its brand of live interactive entertainment events to millions of attendees throughout the United States, Canada and Great Britain. Beginning with the development of localized comic book conventions in the 1970’s 1980’s, including its long running annual Thanksgiving weekend event in Manhattan, Creation later moved its interest into focusing on sci-fi, fantasy and horror television series and films.”View Website

Newton-San Juan del Sur Sister City Project
“Since 1988, the citizens of Newton, Massachusetts have joined in a partnership with fellow activists in the Pacific Coast town of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua (pop. 18,500). We have built or renovated twenty school houses in remote villages throughout the 250-square mile San Juan school district, constructed model homes for teachers, painted and renovated existing schools, rebuilt playgrounds, sponsored teacher workshops, and supported village pre-schools. We helped create the Newton Workshop on Appropriate Technology where we build innovative water-purification systems and smoke-free cooking stoves. We also serve as the pass-through for the innovative Free High School for Adults.”View Website View Our Partnership Activity
