With April 12th marked as Teen Literacy Day, DoSomething.org kicked off its new campaign, in an effort to spread the message about the importance of literacy. This year’s nationwide initiative, the Epic Book Drive, sets out to encourage teens to take part in the second annual drive and help bring books to local people in need and battling educational inequality.
Keri Hilson joined forces with the non-profit organization to encourage the youngins to jump on the bandwagon, take action and do something for those in need in their community:
“Joining DoSomething.org’s newest effort to provide for people in need with Epic Book Drive was the easiest decision ever! I truly believe providing access to those who want to learn is the key to bettering lives around the country. And helping kids find healthy outlets, such as books, has always been a passion of mine. So my involvement here is a natural fit.”
Starting May 18th, the Epic Book Drive will urge students to lead book drives at their schools and in their communities. DoSomething.org will provide all the help they need to get these drives off the ground and reach success. For more information, visit www.DoSomething.org/Epic.
