Twitter Literacy Day 2010

Twitter is reaching out to do something good for the people. They are promoting literacy.

In a garbled tweet sent out this morning, Twitter officially announced Twitter Literacy Day 2010.

Literacy has the power to lift families out of poverty in one generation and change the fate of entire communities, particularly in the developing world. Let’s make this International Literacy Day really mean something and help more people learn to read.

How can you help and participate? Per the website you can do a few things:

  • Purchase a bottle of wine (I like the sound of that) – with help from Crushpad Winery, $5 from the sales of a specially crafted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay will help establish libraries and provide books to children in India. For more see here.
  • Help publish a book – Room to Read publishes children’s books in 22 languages and distributes them throughout its library network in Asia and Africa. Donations will be matched to a Room to Read donor.

For more information about the program and how to get involved, check out the site here.

How are YOU going to participate?
