At www.adoptaword.com you can do just that – adopt a word. I visited this site when Stephen Fry tweeted about it (he adopted “wordy”) and it is for a great cause. The money raised from adoptions goes to I CAN, the children’s communication charity.
As the I CAN website explains, one in ten children has a communication difficulty – almost three in every UK classroom – impacting on all aspects of children’s lives.
You can choose a word to adopt for yourself or as a present – and if you order before midnight tonight then you will also be in time to get an adoption pack sent out in time for Christmas.
Enjoy. (Sorry, “enjoy” has already been adopted, by the way).
