Julie Bowen has teamed with the Save The Children organization to make the PSA below titled “A World With No Math.” Here’s what was shared online along with the video:
“That’s right. Say it ain’t so, but this kind of world already exists for children living in poor countries. Save the Children found that kids were puzzled by math even after several years of schooling. So we put our heads together and came up with a solution: Numeracy Boost. And you, of course.
Michael Boatman, Julie Bowen, Simon Helberg and John Oliver are all backing our Crowdrise campaign to launch the math program in Bangladesh and Malawi this year. Can we ‘count’ you in, too? By boosting kids’ math skills, we set them up for success in school and life. Use #Math
