Did you know that a child born to a mother who can read is 50 percent more likely to survive past the age of 5? That's the question posed by Queen Rania of Jordan, who is joined by movie and music stars Matt Damon, Jessica Alba, Shakira and John Legend in supporting 1GOAL's Education for All campaign on the comedy website Funny Or Die.

The site, set up by Hollywood comedy giants Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, is hosting the queen's public service announcement which features Matt Damon on caffeine pills and John Legend without a piano.

Funny or Die's comedy duo The Almost Twins also took their High Five Montage act to South Africa and roped in soccer superstars to help them on their quest for the ultimate palm-patting poses.

1GOAL is the Campaign for Education's ambitious drive to encourage world governments' pursuit of UNESCO's Education for All initiative.

With close to 10 million website visitors signing up to Join1GOAL.org, the Campaign's aim is to ensure primary school education for 72 million children worldwide by 2015.
