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.
