We are so excited to be collaborating with you on this challenge. We have assembled a few tools below to support you. Together, we can help children in Indonesia develop a love of reading that supports their own development and the development of their communities.There are three ways that we can work together on this challenge:
1. Pledge To Read Visit the challenge homepage and pledge to read aloud with the children you work with. Tell us how many children you will read with and where you are reading to them. This will help us track our progress towards our goal
2. Celebrity Readathon On National Children’s Day (July 23rd) from noon to midnight we will live stream a celebrity readathon on Facebook. People from all across Indonesia will be reading their favorite children’s books aloud. Be sure to tune in with your children and share the readathon with your followers on social media.
3. Social Media Use #LetsReadAloud to show us the work that you are doing. We want to see the books that you are reading and the children that you are reading to. You can also tell your followers that you are participating by downloading the image in this toolkit and setting it as your Facebook banner. We have also included a few additional graphics for you to share on Facebook to help show your support for children in Indonesia.
We are thrilled to be working with you on this challenge and we know that together we can create transformative reading opportunities that support children, their families and their communities.
