Another worthy charity receives Usborne Books
22nd May 2018
One of the most important influences for success in life is the availability of books in the hands of children from birth on. This spring, we are making donations across the country to ensure all children have access to Usborne Books.

I donated my charity box to local Hamilton charity, Wesley Urban Ministries, to give to children and families facing stark poverty and barriers. 34% of children live in poverty in the lower wards in downtown Hamilton where Wesley offers after-school programs, camps, teen drop-in, family programs and housing for homeless youth.
Find out more about Wesley's programs at https://wesley.ca/children-youth-and-family.
I work passionately towards putting new books into the homes of children with limited resources.
