What is a Cheer Page?
A cheer page is a way for you to encourage your friends, family, and coworkers to donate to the Literacy Center. First, you create a custom web page with pictures and stories about why you support the Literacy Center. Then, you set a personal goal of how much you would like your cheer page to raise for the Literacy Center. Finally, you ask people in your network to help you reach your goal by sharing your page through email and your personal Facebook and twitter accounts.
