Join International Paper, Resource Engine Group, SitStayRead and Chicago Animal Care and Control for the Chicago launch of Apollo the Spacedog!

International Paper is committed to bringing together local service-minded organizations to explore how the power of print makes a difference in our local communities. Join us for an exclusive look at Apollo the Spacedog, an original children's book created by International Paper as part of its Accent On: Reading literacy program. Using augmented reality, Apollo the Spacedog brings to life a tale of adventure and friendship between a girl and her dog. Experience the AR magic for yourself, and take home your own copy of the book.

You'll also learn about:

  • Accent On: Reading, the International Paper program that pioneers public service initiatives designed to foster a lifelong love of reading

  • SitStayRead, a Chicago organization that advances children's literacy skills with an engaging curriculum, certified dogs and dedicated volunteers

  • Chicago Animal Care and Control, Chicago's only open-admission municipal animal shelter, which is committed to ensuring the humane care of animals through sheltering, pet placement, education and animal law enforcement

Register by Monday, July 8 to enjoy complimentary food and drinks, networking, a photo booth with the famous Apollo, and more. Plus, every attendee will receive a swag bag filled with the new Accent swatchbook, your own copy of Apollo the Spacedog and more Apollo goodies.
