Want to help young Indigenous children and also possibly earn a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records™ simultaneously? Join The White Feather Foundation and United Way Australia to Jump for Literacy on Nov. 19.
Here’s how it works:
Register on our TWFF team page by clicking “Join Us.” Once you do and pay the $10 registration fee, you’ll be able to create your own page and invite others to sponsor your jump. On the day of the event, we’ll ask you to upload a photo of yourself jumping within the hour specified to help the collective organization upload the most jump photos at that specific time to qualify for the record. If the jump is successful, you’ll receive an official Guinness World Records™ certificate for your participation.
Don’t want to jump, but still want to help? On the same page where you register, simply choose the “donate” option instead.
With your donations, United Way Australia will help by providing books and educational materials to children in the remote Aboriginal community of Urapunga, which is located in the Northern Territory of Australia. The group’s Elders are focused on making items out of natural materials that exist on the land and to provide affordable clothing through their remote OpShop, while inspiring an entrepreneurial spirit in the generations that follow. Learn more about their goals and here.
Learn about our most recent work with United Way Australia here and watch our TWFF social media pages on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates as we get closer to the jump. We hope to have you on the team!
