Your invite to the Adventures of Ai World Charity Cup Launch Event on 9/9/14

You might remember that back in July, I introduced you to a new children's e-book called Adventures of Ai, written by New York Times bestselling author, Craig Bouchard. The story is a part non-fiction and part fiction fantasy targeted at girls and boys ages 9-12 for the pressures they will encounter as they grow up, and incorporates subjects like art, history, poetry, music and mathematics.

The e-book also has an app.  Player scores from the game are combined to facilitate the World Charity Cup.  It is a video game competition to raise money for 20 children’s charities (see end of email for list of charities) - anyone can play to win for the charity’s country by playing the free Adventures of Ai video game for App Store (iOS)Google Play (Android) or the Kindle Fire.

They are having a launch event for the Adventures of Ai World Charity Cup next Tuesday (9/9/14) at the Ronald McDonald House in Chicago - and they will be streaming it live for everyone to watch.

When: Tuesday, September 9 at 4:30PM PT
Who Can Attend: Anyone who would like to watch!
Special guests who will be joining us: players from the Chicago Blackhawks, team mascot Tommy Hawk and Ronald McDonald
