What a great event. On behalf of the employees at FreeBalance, we would like to thank the people at LitWorld who made World Read Aloud Day 2011 possible. The feedback from the employees was very positive. And the feedback from the children was especially enthusiastic. This event is such a special way to get involved in the local community in a meaningful way. And it was great that FreeBalance could demonstrate its commitment to literacy in such a fun and engaging manner.
This is the second year FreeBalance participated in World Read Aloud Day. This year, 12 offices around the world read The Mixed-Up Chameleon by Eric Carle at local schools, an orphanage, and a children’s cancer centre. The offices that participated included: Antigua & Barbuda, Canada, Guatemala, Kosovo, Kyrgyz Republic, Liberia, Mongolia, Palestine, and Uganda. Text and activities, including the certificate, were translated to the local language to encourage understanding and participation.
Here are images from some of the FreeBalance participation around the world:
