When we developed the idea for SandiCon 2022, not only did we want for all of us to come together to celebrate the show and each other - we also wanted to give back.
We chose Jane Austen House Museum, School-Home Support and Reach the Children UK- not only because they are connected to "Sanditon" in some way,
but also because they have such a wonderful mission.
Jane Austen House Museum is the charming cottage where Jane Austen lived and published six of her most popular novels and began "Sanditon".
Support for the maintenance of the house is important to
maintain Jane's legacy for future generations.
School-Home Support works to address the root causes of why
less-advantaged children are not able to get to school on a regular basis,
working with families to develop positive results so
that children can learn and thrive in school.
Reach the Children UK works to empower women and their families in rural villages to become self-sustaining, develop skills in industries that support
their families and their communities. Reach the Children also sponsors
children through their journey through school, in order that they
have a chance to go to university and build better lives
for themselves and their communities.
All of these charities spoke to us and hold a place in our hearts.
With your support of SandiCon 2022, we believe that they will soon hold a special place in yours.
