Mission Read – About Us
Mission Read is an organic, grassroots literacy campaign. It has been designed to stress the importance of reading at all levels, regardless of age, gender or socioeconomic status. Using this as the benchmark, we hope to highlight topics and issues relating to literacy and each month will feature a series of articles stressing the ‘need to read’! The campaign will also feature authors, business owners and advocates for education and children’s’ issues. Beyond the articles and discussions using social media, Mission Read will be the hub for outreach, education and community involvement as participants showcase their efforts to spread the love of books and reading in their locales and beyond!
“I wanted to start a campaign that everyone could feel a part of. People like to participate in different ways and it was with this in mind that Mission Read was designed. Every person can feel proactive from the grandmother reading to her grandchildren to the teacher running a book club to the neighborhood organizing a community book drive. As long as you are reading, you are a part of Mission Read!”
