A Billion Words Around The World Challenge has launched September 2014!

Why A Billion Words Around The World? Because in this day and age I believe we have the opportunity (never more than now) to create something awesome ... collectively, worldwide and socially driven that would encompass our experience or life on our planet.

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela

Collaborative authoring via A Billion Words Around The World website / blog where EVERYONE in the world who has access to the Internet can be a part of the challenge and DONATE (at the same time) to the best Worldwide Literacy and Education Charities. Remember, a minimum 80% of the proceeds will be donated to charity as we accomplish A Billion Words Around The World Challenge!

 

A Billion Words Around The World Statistics
Earth Circumference: 24,901 miles latitude (40,075 km)
24,901 miles = 1,577,727,360 inches
Average word length (US) = 5 letters
Average font = Times New Roman, 12 pt.
5 of these letters = .75 inches
(Side Note) # of Facebook users = 1.25 billion
Based on above statistics = 1,183,295,520 (US) words would stretch around the world (1.183 billion words)
