Indigenous Literacy Day today
The Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) is staging its seventh Indigenous Literacy Day today and is aiming to raise up to $200,000 for Indigenous literacy.
As previously reported by Books+Publishing, fundraising events are being held across the country, including an event at the Sydney Opera house with students and staff from one of Australia’s most remote schools, Tjuntjuntjara Remote Community School in Western Australia.
ILF has also launched a new fundraising campaign called ‘Get Caught Reading’. The social media campaign asks booklovers to make a small donation for Indigenous literacy and upload and share a photo of themselves reading one of their favourite titles. So far, the campaign has raised around $2500.
