LitLiberation

DonorsChoose.org Blogger Challenge

litliberation-logo.jpg

LitLiberation is a campaign by CEOs, bloggers, and people just like yourself to spread the power of literacy worldwide. Organized by author Tim Ferriss, it is a new fundraising model based on competition and social media scalability. It funds not only US public school projects but also libraries and schools in developing countries.

Internet history has been made. During the month of October, more than a hundred bloggers inspired their readers to give $420,000 to classroom projects on DonorsChoose.org, reaching 75,000 students from low-income communities.

Winners: By raising $139,509, Tim Ferriss, creator of LitLiberation, won the Google Award. By mobilizing 1,099 readers and reaching 15,953 kids, TomatoNation won the Yahoo! Award and Six Apart Award. Five blogs came up with especially creative ways to inspire giving, thereby earning the Federated Media Award.

Other winners include Fred Wilson of aVC (Technology Leaderboard), Kara Swisher of All Things D (FM Award), PZ Myers of Pharyngula (ScienceBlogs Leaderboard), and Apartment Therapy (Topical/Local Leaderboard). Early adopters include TechCrunch, Engadget, Curbed, Anil Dash, and Young Manhattanite. Meanwhile, Stephen Colbert has been lighting up the VotersChoose leaderboard after an interview with Craig Newmark.

We hope you’re inspired to create your own challenge! Questions? Email charlotte@donorschoose.org.
