Twittering for a cause - Help build a library

Via VentureWoods

Do children have a right to books, toys and the freedom to read, learn and imagine?

I am not sure if the constitution guarantees it but working as an entrepreneur in the Indian Education sector that is something I found missing. While we talk of revolutionizing education by the use of technology, millions wait for their first book.

Our World Our Stories (OWOS) is an initiative to do something about this. OWOS will create children books and the means to take book to all children, especially the ones usually left behind.

As a first step, please help us in building a library for the kids at Project Why - an 8 year old NGO. All you have to do is follow @owos on Twitter - http://twitter.com/owos. When the number of supporters reaches 100000, Grolier International (the Indian subsidiary of Scholastic Inc.) will donate a library to Project Why. It’s that simple!

You can also support the project on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Our-World-Our-Stories/119586777619 and learn more about it at http://ourworldourstories.com

Indian users also stand to win one of their 100 monthly prizes that include 25-50% discount coupons for 100s of books titles, free encyclopedia sets and premium educational aids from Grolier. We are already following @owos. We hope you do too!
