While we’re celebrating International Literacy Day we’re excited to announce that this past month as Pinterest went public we had over 600,000 followers join us on our Reading Board and Bilingual Babies and Geography Board. We cannot tell you how excited we are able this, if the numbers are accurate (truthfully we’re still questioning it). If those are the two things we share with the world more than anything else that would be a huge goal of both mine and Amanda’s! Here are links below to our two boards, please check them out.
However one can’t help but also acknowledge that if we were to chart on the map the rate of literacy there are still some areas that are not being reached. We really want to help to support literacy in our world. There are some simple steps we can do to build a literacy foundation at home and provide outreach to others. Here are our ideas along with UNESCO.
