The 2015 Literacy Matters campaign was a huge success, with 30 businesses helping us spread the word that literacy is a right for everyone in Chatham County.
We sold 335 Literacy Matters T-shirts during the month-long campaign in September, raising $2,000 to fund Chatham Literacy’s free adult literacy programming. A fun group wore their shirts in our September 8 campaign kickoff photo, which was taken at the courthouse in Pittsboro.
Please don’t forget that your 2015 Literacy Matters T-shirt will keep on giving – to you – on the first Tuesday of each month.
This year’s shirts have unique numbers printed on them, and Chatham Literacy will randomly draw five T-shirt numbers on the first Tuesday each month through August 2016. If your shirt has one of those numbers, you’ll win a special prize at one of our Literacy Matters partnering businesses just by wearing your shirt to the business that day. And everyone who wears an official T-shirt to the business that Tuesday will receive a discount.
Be sure to check out our home page the first Tuesday of the month, or “like us” on Facebook to get a notice when we post the winning numbers.
Al’s Diner in Pittsboro was the participating business in October. The five people wearing T-shirts with the winning numbers received a free entrée on October 6 and everyone else who wore a 2015 Literacy Matters T-shirt to the restaurant that day got 10% off!
