Beta Gamma Sigma — an international business honor society of which I am a lifetime member — will join other sponsors, non-profit organizations and affiliates across the United States and in 30 countries to Read Across the Globe on Monday, October 19, 2015 for children in kindergarten through Grade 12 in an attempt to break a world record. A similar attempt to break a world record is scheduled to occur on Thursday, October 22, 2015 for pre-school children. This will be the tenth anniversary of this global campaign. By working across time zones with hundreds of partners, those who are involved with Read Across the Globe hope to read to the most children ever in a 24-hour period. This initiative is an effort to shine a light on literacy, inspire people to become literacy volunteers, and offer tools to help. If you are interested in participating in this initiative, you can register with Points of Light or volunteer with a site in your area. Two of the partners of Read Across the Globe are Jumpstart for Young Children, Inc., which is a Kula Cause under the Milepoint Cares initiative; and Points of Light, which brings the power of volunteers together to positively impact literacy in your community and is also a Kula Cause under the Milepoint Cares initiative.
