#Adventurtorium24 and Give Kids the World Auction

Adventurtorium with watermark (1)
We’re celebrating the pre-release of Adventurtorium by playing it for 24 hours straight on DISDads Radio from 8 a.m. Eastern Time Sunday morning until 8 a.m. Eastern Time Monday morning – we encourage you to listen in and tweet about it, using the hashtag #Adventurtorium24.

We’re also helping Joe Pardo realize his ultimate goal for his Adventurtorium composition – raising funds to help Give Kids the World. You can help by bidding on a canvas print of the fantastic cover art he commissioned as part of this project. As we usually do, you can place your bid by listing the amount of your bid in the comments below. The complete auction rules are the same as always – you can review them here. The only change is that you’ll make your payment through the Firstgiving link set up specifically for the Adventurtorium project. This auction will end at 10 a.m. Eastern on Tuesday morning, April 15, 2014.

Oh, and one more thing – a simultaneous auction for another canvas print of the same cover art is going on over at Magical Mouse Schoolhouse. I’ve been bragging for the last couple of weeks about how confident I am that the DISDads community is so amazingly generous — do me a favor. Don’t let the Magical Mouse Schoolhouse auction end higher than ours!!
