Another worthy charity receives Usborne Books

30th 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.

My children and I delivered the books to Roger Nielson House in Ottawa Friday morning. It was a PD Day and I wanted to bring me kids along with me.

Roger Nielson House is an amazing facility full of kind and loving staff who bring comfort and peace to those staying in their care.

A friend of mine gave birth to her sweet baby girl in September. After a difficult labour she had to be put on a breathing tube and suffered seizures. She was transferred to the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario where she underwent testing. It was determined she had no brain functioning and they were told she would pass once taken off the ventilator. No one realised what a little fighter she was! Once off the ventilator she blessed her loving parents with over 35 days. We just received word that she has gained her angel wings and has gone to join God.

We wanted to donate our books to the Roger Nielson House in baby Charlottes honour. 

Thank you Usborne for making this possible ❤
