Read For A Cause


Reading’s Never Been so Good. Today, more than 300 million children will never learn to read or write. We want to change this. Scribd has partnered with Room To Read to raise awareness of literacy among children in under-served communities around the world. Joining us are some of today's most influential authors, academics, celebrities and thought leaders, all sharing what they’re reading with their followers and fans, hoping to fuel lively discussion and action around this important cause. Reader donations generated by the Read for a Cause program will go directly to building three libraries in India in 2011. With 35% of the world’s illiterate population in India, we need your help to combat illiteracy one library at time. Please join us in spreading the word -- Readcast, comment or donate. Don’t forget to follow this profile so you can get real-time updates all year!see more
