Good Words for Africa is not only a popular Scrabble© fundraiser to organize, but it has the potential to harness the power of using words to make a difference. More than twenty grandmothers groups have put on this fundraiser and for some groups, it has even become an annual event in their communities!

Now you too can become part of the Scrabble© phenomenon, by rallying your community to gather pledges and play their best game. You can even have an online fundraising page for your event.  The originators of this idea, the Eastside Grannies from Sherwood Park, Alberta have put together a Good Words for Africa Scrabble© Benefit Kit that includes pledge sheets, ‘cheat sheets’, scoring grids, serendipitous experiences plus many more useful ideas and suggestions about how to organize your own Good Words for Africa tournament.
