Read8 Give8 Modul8

Ethan and I are running a Challenge called the Read8, Give8 & Modul8 Challenge

Please send photos of yourselves, your family, friends and pets (he!he!) , reading , giving and modul8ting to info@modulargold.com. We will be creating a collage!!



Read 8 books this year : Reading increases knowledge and with the increase in knowledge comes an increase in tolerance, creating a better community.

With millions of books out there, an easy way to select books is by genre. See below some suggestions in each genre for the month. Do you have any suggestions?


Give 8: Raise funds for your local cancer research. There are 8 months until the end of the year, please give at least 8 units of your local currency to your local cancer research organisation. In Qatar, please give at least 8 riyals to the Qatar Cancer Society, for India 8 rupees, for Greece 8 Euros, for the UK donate at least 8 pounds.  The purpose of this is that each person helps their local cancer charity. There is no one collecting funds or no website to send funds to. It is geared towards each community.


Modul8: To modulate means to exert a modifying or controlling influence on , to regulate, to harmonise. Lend your voices and create awareness, speak about it and speak to each other to combat the scourge of cancer. 

Every year nationally recognized, non-profit organizations that provide support, education, and awareness for individual cancers assign awareness months and ribbon colours to each month in the year. In Qatar, the Qatar Cancer Society, organises awareness events and fundraising for each month. Please check with your local cancer charity for the awareness events and campaigns.

    What a great challenge to encourage others to participate in! I participate in a cancer study in order to honor a friend who died.
