Another worthy charity receives Usborne Books
26th October 2017
One of the most important influences for success in life is the availability of books in the hands of children from birth on. This autumn, we are making donations across the country to ensure all children have access to Usborne Books.

It was my extreme pleasure to earn a charity box from Usborne in August!
I wanted to donate these fantastic books to an organization in my area who not only worked to empower women but also their children!
That’s when I found Nova House. Nova House is a women’s shelter residing in Selkirk, MB that works to protect against and help restore the lives of women and their children who have suffered from domestic violence in the Interlake and North Eastman regions of Manitoba. Nova House provides temporary shelter, counselling and numerous other support services to help these mom’s and their kids rebuild.
I was so touched to place these books in their hands as they explained that they use books in their child counselling sessions and that as each child leaves the home, they send them on their way with a blanket and a book!
I can’t thank Usborne enough for this incredible opportunity. I left the home with tears in my eyes as I realized what a difference these gifted books will make on each child!
