Help get the word out on this silent crisis.  Multiple languages go extinct every year, and opening up a dialogue on a solution helps!

[/fusion_li_item][fusion_li_item icon=”fa-bullhorn fas”]

Make your voice heard!  Start a petition, set-up or host an event dedicated to the discussion of these nearly extinct languages, or simply promote the use of your native language.

[/fusion_li_item][fusion_li_item icon=”fa-users fas”]

Convey to the public the importance of native languages and the profound need for language to maintain healthy communities.

Studying a language is a challenge, but it has many great rewards. To begin the process, choose a language at Ethnologue. Then do a web search for materials, language courses at universities, and study groups.

If there are not many options for your language, do not despair. Begin a self-study and join or form a group on social media. Once you start, stay committed to the process. The attention and interest you bring to the language will help others as well, and eventually bring more attention to the language.

If you know an indigenous language, then sharing your knowledge with others is one of the best ways to help the language survive. You can help lead a study group or online learning community, or even volunteer at a school or language program. There are many potential opportunities, but starting and helping others is important to keep the language alive.

Create your online fundraiser and start accepting donations for The Language Conservancy.  The process is very easy, see how to here!

Go to the TLC GoFundMe Page

[/fusion_content_box][fusion_content_box title=”Ask for Donations” backgroundcolor=”” icon=”fa-bullhorn fas” iconflip=”” iconrotate=”” iconspin=”” iconcolor=”” circlecolor=”” circlebordersize=”” circlebordercolor=”” outercirclebordersize=”” outercirclebordercolor=”” image=”” image_id=”” image_max_width=”” link=”” linktext=”” link_target=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_offset=””]

Email a link to your TLC fundraising page to all your friends, family, co-workers, and classmates. Message your friends through Facebook, Twitter, and everything else you can think of.

Be relentless. It’s ok to ask two or even three times. It’s for a really good cause.

The idea is to make your online TLC fundraiser so fun that everyone you reach out to wants to give money and join your fundraising campaign.
Wear a cable-knit poncho for the day when you raise $500 or do a little lap around the house for every $10 you raise. Anything notable is awesome.
