Room to Read World Change Challenge 2013


Last year I teamed with Room to Read, Stubbies Schoolwear and schoolkids around Australia and NZ to raise more than $20,000 to build a school library in Siam Reap, Cambodia.

The library built with funds from our World Change Challenge!
This year, the World Change Challenge is on again and we have upped the stakes. It's called All in for Africa and our goal is to raise $25,000 to publish a local-language book in Tanzania, Africa. (Learn more about Room to Read's amazing work in Tanzania with this short video [3:45])

I'm calling on students, teachers, classes and schools all over Australia & NZ to create some fun, crazy challenges to help us in our mission. Check out the video I shot last year with kids at Ocean Shores school, raising nearly $600 in a single day (and getting to embarrass their teachers at the same time).


There are lots more fundraising ideas on Room to Read's Students Helping Students page so take a look and if you'd like to get involved and help us boost literacy for some of the world's poorest children email Australia@RoomtoRead.org.


World change starts with educated children.
