More worthy charities receive Usborne Books
19th June 2019
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 received my charity box and donated to The Bridges For Children program! This program helps with re-homing, mentorship, and literacy (and much more!)
I’ve become a welcomed face around there as I’m always bringing books! They have just recently had a young man go from a grade 1 reading level to a grade 8 reading level (where he is supposed to be) with the help of our books!! They save some books for birthdays and new moms for the ones that need and I think they’re a blessing!
I had the privilege of going down to The Children’s Book Bank and delivering an entire box of Usborne Books to this amazing organization!! They support children’s literacy by providing free books and literacy support to children living in low-income neighbourhoods across Toronto.
It was a pleasure to meet Roxanne Fitzpatrick and see her passion of kids and literacy! From the moment I walked in I could feel this is a special place. A place of beauty, acceptance and opportunity. A group of children were sitting, mesmerized by the story being read aloud to them. As I left I could see little faces peeping through the windows... books in hand.
The Children's Book Bank Canada you are doing an incredible work!! Thanks for allowing me to be a part of it. ❤️
