I received an e-mail from Blog Catalog today informing me of the upcoming International Literacy Day on September 8th and giving me the opportunity to unite with other bloggers to support this important day.
I wanted to pass this information along as I have personally worked with someone who was held back on his job and providing for his family due to his inability to read the necessary paperwork and forms required for a promotion. Plus, I thought that we, as wordsmiths, particularly know the opportunities available by being able to read and write proficiently.
So, if you wish to unite with me and other bloggers on September 8th to support this cause, see the following:
Unite for Literacy
On International Literacy Day each year, UNESCO reminds the international community of the status of literacy and adult learning globally. Celebrations take place around the world.
