The Read Out Loud Challenge

Books spread on the bed

Do you love to read? Share one of your favorite lines from a book through the National Bookstore’s #ReadOutLoudChallenge. This is an exciting challenge with a great purpose because for every 75 videos uploaded, The NBS Foundation will set up one school library in any community in the Philippines.

Isn’t it awesome? The library will provide thousands of Filipino kids access to quality books that will nurture and develop their love for learning and reading. You won’t win anything, like most challenges, but you can contribute to a child’s learning and development, especially kids living in far-flung areas.

The mechanic is actually simple. All you have to do is to post a video of yourself on Facebook and/or Instagram reading your favorite line(s) from a book. In your caption, just tag @nbsalert with the hashtag #ReadOutLoudChallenge and then tag three or more friends.

The goal is to upload 75,000 videos to set up 100 libraries. It’s a long shot, but if we all take part it’s possible.

You can check out my own #ReadOutLoudChallenge on my Facebook page. Learn more about this challenge by checking out National Bookstore’s blog post.
