CCDD is an Annual Charity event where Celebrities & their fans raise money by Playing Dungeons and Dragons at Meltdown Comics – LIVE STREAMED in the Nerdist Theater so YOU can donate from home!

We are members of the Tabletop Gaming community who want to show our support for Dungeons and Dragons and Future Gamers of the world. Help us Help Children by giving them the boost they need and showing kids that reading can lead to amazingly fun things… like playing!

What Is Reach Out and Read?

Reach Out and Read is an evidence-based nonprofit organization that promotes early literacy and school readiness in pediatric exam rooms nationwide by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud.

Reach Out and Read builds on the unique relationship between parents and medical providers to develop critical early reading skills in children, beginning at 6 months of age. The 3.8 million families served annually by “Reach Out and Read” read together more often, their children enter kindergarten with larger vocabularies, with stronger language skills, and better prepared to succeed.

Pediatric healthcare providers (including pediatricians, family physicians, and pediatric nurse practitioners) are trained in the three-part Reach Out and Read model to promote early literacy and school readiness. Read More:
