Such a great way to get more people to learn about literacy worldwide.

It&#8217;s International Literacy Day. Here are three ways you can get involved, and they are pretty easy, too:
Pick up a book and read.
Take a selfie with your favorite book.
Find a volunteer opportunity near you where you can read to and mentor a kid who might not otherwise get the chance. Opportunities here.
Rock on, readers.

Take a #literacyselfie while reading your favorite book or reading to a kid. Let’s bring more awareness to the over 123 million youth worldwide who are illiterate and deserve a better shot at learning and succeeding in school and life!

A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.

Absolutely couldn’t agree more. At United Way, we’re helping to end homelessness, especially among youth, in many ways. From crisis centers and hotlines to career guidance and shelter housing, we’re creating pathways out of poverty so we can help build this dream together.

Russell is helping us to get the word out about NFL Play 60 to help tackle childhood obesity and get kids active and healthy. Also, he took on that obstacle course with grace, skill and&#8230;well, a good sense of humor.
