This poster is extremely well done. It's very well designed and impactful, and gets the message across effectively.

However ... I'm confused. I know this was published more than two years ago, but I'd like to know where most of this data came from.

For example, using Wolfram|Alpha (www.wolframalpha.com), we may easily discern that the current amount of people over 15 who are illiterate (cannot read) is actually only 725 million.

The other stats I'm honestly not sure of; though I assume that they may be inaccurate as well.

This poster, while effective, would certainly, in my opinion be more effective with accurate statistics. :) Just some constructive criticism for you.

Thanks for sharing this awesome piece.

Brilliant. And yes, first of charities I give to is literacy. It's the one cause that makes a difference across the board. I live in Arkansas and yes, the adult illiteracy here isn't just a regional joke. It's real and it's ugly. Thank you for this poster. It's made me feel good and awful all at the same time.

This is an amazing poster, and it's amazingly structured. However, I see one error with the information contained in it, and that error sticks out too much for me to ignore it.

The poster comes in English. That means that if you can read the poster, you can read in English. But if you don't know how to read in English, you can't read the poster. Since the poster tells you that you're fortunate if you can read the message, does that mean that you're not fortunate if you don't know English even if you know how to read in any other language?

The message is wonderful, but I'd feel terrible if I didn't try to help you make it accurate.

No problem!

Your other posters are also really good. I'm looking at this one: [link] and I can't give you enough thumbs up! It's pathetic how much the media has perverted our sense of being, isn't it?

Even if that last part about not being fortunate if you can't read English, the "reader" would never know about it because he/she wouldn't be able to read the words on the poster that say so anyway.

It doesn't make me grateful and it shouldn't, it makes me want to do something about it and that is what really matter. Stop living in your soap bubble and do something!

No problem, I really appreciate work like your piece here, it takes great courage to say some things that are so true & heartbreaking, but society doesn't want to listen, so your branded as a 'snob' or 'arrogant' because you stood up and spoke the truth.
So thank you, thank you for having the courage to pull back the curtains on humanities ignorance, even if just a little =)

Nice job of presenting the information.

Is it bad that this doesn't really make me feel grateful; it just makes me terribly worried for most of the people in the world. >.>

If I was born to different parents I would be a different person. I WASN'T chosen by someone to born in this particular situation. I'm a product of cause and effect and not by some supernatural hand. If you think you can guilt trip me by saying that I'm not thankful to some invisible god, You have another thing coming.

Yes there are some real living people I can thank, but most of reality and the universe is a result of highly internally sensitive chaotic systems acting upon each other.

Yeah, I saw a few kids wearing it as a shirt and i was going to ask them where they got it, but I was too shy. OTL

I hope no one stole this from you. D:

I really love how you put this together. :3 It's very nice.
