“…resilience, hope, and joy through the power of story.”


We all like stories.

We all tell stories.

The quote in the title of this post is from the mission statement of LitWorld.

Back in March, for World Read Aloud Day, I shared some info about LitWorld—Reading Out Loud . . .

This time I’ll share this wonderful opportunity from LitWorld’s site:

~~~

Support LitWorld by shopping at AmazonSmile. Here’s how:

1. Head to smile.amazon.com and log in with the same email address and password as your regular Amazon account, or open a new account if you are a first time shopper. Note: Your purchases must be made through smile.amazon.com to be eligible for a charitable donation.

2. On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you will be prompted to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Type LitWorld in the search box. The search result will return “LitWorld International Inc.” Click “select.”

AmazonSmile will remember your selection, and every eligible purchase you make will result in a donation. You may also want to add a bookmark to AmazonSmile to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile.

~~~

I also want to let you know LitWorld has LitClubs:

“LitWorld believes that everyone has stories that can change the world. Literacy should be meaningful to each individual in the context of their own hopes and dreams.

“The child who values her own stories will use them to create new ideas and new ways of thinking. LitClubs are pioneering integrated approaches that value the story, the creative spirit and the holistic lives of children.”

And, one last (but not LitWorld’s last) worthy endeavor—Innovation Hubs:

“LitWorld Innovation Hubs center our resources in local communities where we engage in deep and strong partnerships, working together to improve outcomes in literacy, personal empowerment, and inter-generational leadership and civic engagement around reading and writing.

“The Hubs provide versatile learning spaces for children and young adults as well as their families, support LitWorld’s educational programming, and offer lending libraries, providing community members with comprehensive access to high quality texts that inspire them to read more regularly. Our hubs offer community members of all ages extensive leadership training, and real opportunities topractice and refine their these capabilities.”

I’m hoping you’ll go visit LitWorld and hoping you’ll come back and share your thoughts and feelings in our Comments

But, before you go (or, after you come back) watch this video of the Founder of LitWorld, Pam Allyn:
