ICYMI @PamAllyn was on @HuffPostLive yesterday to talk about World Read Aloud Day & conquering illiteracy:
FreeBalance read aloud in 14 countries last year. Our staff was busier at government customer sites this year, so it was down to 9 locations in 8 countries this year – until the threatened snow storm in Washington DC cancelled one of the locations.
FreeBalance India read aloud at the Sri Ramakrishna Daridra Bhandar Vidyalaya, Howrah, West Bengal. FreeBalance India provides project accounting, project management and quality assurance services.

Saumyajit FreeBalance #India: I was very happy to see the smiling & innocent faces of children while they were reading and painting #WRADFreeBalance
WRAD in Washington DC from our local office was closed because schools was closed because of a snow storm warning that became known as the “snowquester”. As it turns out, there was very little snow, by Canadian standards and the local staff was disappointed. FreeBalance Washington DC focuses on business development and product management.
what if #snowquester stops our #DC #WRAD in Washington? a snow check?FreeBalance
But, we made up for this from FreeBalance staff based in Miami.
Happy World Read Aloud Day. @litworldsays #WRAD13 Alonso
