Get a free story and donate to charity!

Neil Gaiman and Audible.com paired together to create a promotion for All Hallows' Read that would also benefit charity.  Between now and Halloween, you can download "Click-Clack the Rattlebag" written and performed by Gaiman from the Scare Us US or UK page.  Every FREE download triggers a donation from Audible.  US downloads provide donations to Donors Choose; UK downloads to BookTrust.

In Gaiman's words:
DonorsChoose.org engages the public in public schools by giving people a simple, accountable and personal way to address educational inequity. We envision a nation where children in every community have the tools and experiences needed for an excellent education.

Booktrust is an independent reading and writing charity that makes a nationwide impact on individuals, families and communities, and culture in the UK. We make a significant positive contribution to the educational outcomes of children from the earliest age. We work to empower people of all ages and abilities by giving them confidence and choices about reading. And we want individuals of all backgrounds to benefit from the wellbeing that a rich and positive engagement in reading and writing can bring.

Our work supports children and young people, parents and carers and indeed anyone who would benefit from the positive impact that books, reading and writing can have on their lives.
