WHY SHOULD I SPONSOR?
Children and adults with low literacy skills must also endure poor educational, employment and health outlooks. Reliable access to high-quality books can help break that cycle, but most children from low-income families do not have access to those crucial resources. To fill that gap, First Book Canada donates and distributes new books – more than 5 million so far – to the schools and community-based programs that serve those families most in need.
WHY DOES GET LIT RAISE $ FOR FBC?
Because the majority of low-income families in this country do not have a single book to share with their children. First Book Canada is working hard to change that. It puts new books into the hands of children who need them most.
And the need is great: literacy is critical in determining whether a child will finish school, the work they do and even their health. In some of Canada’s most underfunded communities, there is only one book for every 100 children.
WHAT IS FIRST BOOK CANADA?
First Book Canada is a charity committed to providing free new books and educational resources to schools and community-based programs serving across the country.
