Indigenous Literacy Day – 5 Sept 2012

Today is Indigenous Literacy Day. Alphabet Soup will be making a donation to ILD and we will also be donating the profits from every order made via our website today. So if you were thinking about subscribing to Alphabet Soup, now is a good day to do it!

The Indigenous Literacy Foundations says:

“Funds raised will help us buy new books and resources for kids living in the remotest parts of Australia … One in five children living in a remote community cannot read or write to the basic minimum level. Our Foundation provides access and resources for children in these communities”.
(If you don’t want to subscribe to Alphabet Soup but you’d like to make a donation to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, you can make a direct donation via their website. Every little bit helps!)
