Happy Indigenous Literacy Day
Today is Indigenous Literacy Day – the main fundraising day for the Indigenous Literacy Foundations which aims to alleviate the literacy disadvantage experienced in Australia between indigenous and non-indigenous citizens.
We’re supporting this great cause with a pledge of $5,000, and as previously posted you can support the cause by dropping into any of our stores and dropping some coins (or a note) into the collection containers at our counters (they’ll be there until 31st October so if you can ‘t make it today you’ve got some time).
Another way to be involved is to #getcaughtreading – share a photo of you reading on Facebook or Twitter and help spread the word and raise funds for the project. For more about the Get Caught reading campaign head to the ILD’s website here.
