World Read Aloud Day March 7th 2012 - Come ON!

    

   Wednesday March 7th 2012 is World Read Aloud Day


   At LitWorld.com they began a movement based on 
imagining a world where everyone can read and write.

So far their efforts and actions have made a considerable 
difference in the world. 

"Accomplished so far:
• Reached 35 countries and 40,000 participants on March 3, 2010
• Reached 60 countries and all 50 states and 200,000 participants on March 9, 2011
• Preparing for March 7, 2012: Let's make it a million participants or more!"

With our help to spread the word and join in,
we can help raise awareness and help people of all ages 
learn to read and write!



Worldwide at least 793 million people remain illiterate.
