Come to the ultimate feel-good panel! The story of an uncanny team of comic book superheroes - The School of 5 and their comic books teach children the lifesaving habit of handwashing. By the end of 2014 the School of 5 will be distributed in 23 countries, translated into 19 languages in Asia and Africa and reach 120 million people. 1.7 million children die every year from diarrheal diseases and pneumonia, many of which can be prevented by this simple habit. The School of 5, through the comic books created by Craig Yoe, teach children and their families the importance of handwashing with soap and water in countries like Indonesia, India, Bangladesh, Egypt, Pakistan, Ghana and Kenya. Panel participants include Eisner Award winner Craig Yoe (YoeBooks.com) and Stacie June Shelton (Lifebuoy Global Social Mission Program Manager). Prepare to be amazed - and get free comic books; bring a tissue to wipe away the super tears of joy!
