He has a big plans for IndigenousX and yesterday (Saturday) on Twitter he said if he could get to 10,000 followers by Thursday (just over 6000 at the time) he’d donate a $100 to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (@ILF).
IndigenousX received several hundred new followers in a few hours.
Now I am not saying to follow IndigenousX because he’s trying to increase his followers. Look at the aims Luke has for the account:
1. The main goal is to have a safe space for Indigenous tweeps to share their stories. Their hopes, dreams, goals, & also their frustrations.
2. To network & make new friendships & connections between like-minded tweeps from any & all backgrounds.
3.To allow non-Indigenous tweeps to hear from Indigenous voices.
If you want to learn from our Indigenous Australians, to see aspirations and worries they have as a people and as individuals I urge you to follow IndigenousX.
Preferably by Thursday.
And if you want to donate to a charity you can’t do better than by assisting kids out bush to read. Donate to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
Luke has assisted me in the past with obtaining a large box of books which sit on my bookshelf for kids to read (although most have made their way to homes).
apologies – though links look broken they do work. Hoping to have it fixed soon
