Grupo Nelson Joins LATISM (Latinos In Social Media) In First Virtual Book Drive
Download image NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 20, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Grupo Nelson joins efforts with LATISM (http://latism.org/) to announce the first annual Virtual Book Drive as a way for members and supporters to unite nationally and work toward a common goal to give US Latinos, and Latino children in particular, access to books.
From December 20 to December 31st, 2010, Grupo Nelson and Latinos in Social Media ask you to nominate your favorite library via Twtpoll. We hope to reach our national goal of at least 500 books for a library our members choose.
Why does Latino literacy matter? Illiteracy is linked to nearly every major socioeconomic crisis today. Children who cannot read are statistically more likely as adults to suffer poor health, struggle in the job market, rely on government assistance, and find themselves in the criminal justice system.
With 1 out of 5 children in the country being Latinos and Latino educational levels reaching the point of a national crisis, it is imperative that we do something to promote reading and support the faltering library system. Our future as a culture and as a nation depends on it.
Education, and reading as an integral part of it, is the biggest challenge our community faces right now. We are making a call for our members to uphold our ideals of scholarship, leadership, and service and make a difference today.
Please nominate your favorite library here and tell us why it should win. The library with the most votes will get ALL books collected during our drive, courtesy of our partnering sponsors, publishers and authors, including Grupo Nelson, Raul Ramos y Sanchez, and many more. This list is growing by the minute and will be updated as it does. If you're an author or publisher and would like to participate or donate books, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The winning library will be announced during the LATISM Twitter party on January 6th, 2011 [Three Kings Day]
