That's right.. you have permi
ssion to stay in bed and read all day! Why? Cos it's for a good cause. The idea is that you stay in bed and read all day - forgo the housework and the othe
r mundane tasks, demand breakfast in bed and order takeaway to be delivered for lunch and dinner! READ!! Then after the event, make a
donation to your favourite literacy charities.
The event's official charity of choice is: Dymocks Children's Charities, but in case you'd like to know about other literacy charities, I've done you a favour by linking to a few literacy groups below:
- United Through Reading
- The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation
- National Literacy Trust (UK)
- The Book Bus
- My Little Bookcase
So, you love the idea, don't ya? I'm pretty certain with my three little boys and one big boy, I won't be able to spend the WHOLE day in bed but I'm gonna be sure to spend some time reading in bed - more than I normally would anyway!
If you want to participate in this awesome day. And let's face it, who wouldn't, sign up to the Facebook event at: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=123341761089282
Oh and if anyone knows of any good literacy charities, please post them in the comments section of this blog post :)
