Vote for the GLN!

I've been enjoying the Global Language Network and think that if they have a chance to win a contest to help fund the organization, that would be fantastic! You should all go vote for them on!

My Idea

"Less than 5% of the world is born speaking English and yet only 9% of Americans can speak a foreign language. There is a clear need for GLN. We help individuals establish a GLN Chapter so that thousands of community members can get involved in organizing, teaching, and participating in classes in any language. Our partnerships with the World Bank, 6 major universities, foreign embassies, and a handful of companies are proof of our commitment to involving the community in our path to change. We engage our members to be Ambassadors for Social Change so that they can use the language, teaching, professional and social skills they gain from GLN towards making a positive impact in the community."
