First, I'd like to share the Love of Reading video from Indigo/Chapters. It brings tears to my eyes each time I view it. Our school libraries across the country and woefully underfunded. Some schools near me receive only pennies per child to purchase books each year. How do kids learn to read and to enjoy it when they are reading books that are falling apart and/or are very dated. The Love of Reading program, through the donations of staff and customers, has channelled over $24. Million into some of the neediest schools.
When I reflect that today's children will be the leaders of tomorrow, they will be our doctors and lawyers, they will be our care givers. I want them to be the best that they can.
If would like to donate to the Love of Reading fund, visit your local Indigo, Chapters or Coles books store, or visit the website. All the donations are pooled together and ten of the neediest schools are selected from the many applications each year to rebuild their libraries. Thank-you for listening.
Hope you've enjoyed this March break special post .
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
