Surely more than once you’ve used a URL shortener but, have you ever wondered where those letters that you do not use go? of course those letters get lost. Or they used to get lost.
We introduce you the only shortener that uses letters that you do not need and give them to those who need them most.
This is our story: we have written a book of story tales. This book will be used by the NGO Lights Of Hope to teach nearly 200 children in Howrah, one of the poorest neighborhoods of Calcutta. We have uploaded the book to the web, but we have taken all the letters. Total of letters removed: 48,880 .
So, every time someone uses the URL shortener, we take the leftover letters to write and complete our storybook. The more you use it, before the book was completed.
Once the book is completed, you can buy or download it. The book includes the names in the acknowledgment section, of all the people that have shortened a url. It also includes some teaching exercises after each story, to practice with the little ones of the house.
I can only thank the patience of the guys of Lighs Of Hope, the talented writers, illustrators, Diego, Aurken, Bea … to make true an idea that never seems to come true.
Thank you!!! Read Less
