1GOAL is using Global Campaign for Education’s ‘Action Week 2010’ as a big push
for our campaign. From the 19th to 25th April we need all 1GOAL supporters worldwide
to create as much online ‘buzz’ as possible and drive up our signup figure!
The key date during the week is the 20th—as this is the day of the ‘big lesson’. Some
15 million children in over 100 countries around the world will sit down and take one
lesson in support of the campaign, and we want the social media world to be talking
about it! Let’s get #1GOAL trending!! Tweet about 1GOAL!
