Words can't describe how thankful we are for being able to give back and raise money for the noble non-profit organization Room to Read from our $10 Starter Licenses. Since we first introduced our Starter License Program, four years ago, we helped raise over $40,000 for Room to Read. Their core belief is that all children, regardless of gender or background, have a right to education. Literacy is the cornerstone of all learning and be able to participate in today's global society. Their goal is to provide children, not only with facilities and personnel for learning, but to promote literacy and gender equality in education through a close collaboration with local communities across the developing world. Tempo is a proud contributor of this worthy cause.
This year our donation is biggest yet and thanks to our users we will be able to donate over $22,000 directly to the cause. As we mentioned last summer, for the first half of 2014 Tempo had raised more than $12,000 and there we estimated that we would exceed the success of previous years. All thanks to Tempo's customers.
Should you wish to donate further to this worthy cause, it's worth noting that for this holiday season a group of generous supporters will match your gift, thereby doubling the total donation. But be aware that this opportunity ends December 31st. Get started today and help extend Room to Read's life-changing literacy program to over 10 million children. Your generosity will help young boys and girls across Africa and Asia take control of their futures through the power of education.
