In the spirit of the holidays, Google has launched a Room to Read "theme" on iGoogle as part of a collection called "Themes for Causes".
Room to Read is one of 25 nonprofit causes included in the special initiative which includes an iGoogle header of rotating photographs showcasing Room to Read's programs. With iGoogle, anyone can support the cause that inspires them most by adding that theme to their iGoogle homepage.
iGoogle is a service of Google where users can add features such web feeds, animation and gadgets to customize their homepage. Currently, iGoogle is available in 42 languages in over 70 country domains.
The goal of the "Themes for Causes" campaign is to help nonprofit organizations increase their reach by making their themes available to the millions of iGoogle users around the world. The intent is to raise awareness and donations, as users will have the ability to contribute to Room to Read through a special button that links directly to the Room to Read donations page.
We encourage all our supporters to update your iGoogle homepage by adding the Room to Read theme today. The more users we have, the higher we rank!
