A project in partnership with Calgary Reads and Givyup.org. Shot over three days in multiple locations.
Givyup is a social business helping small and medium sized charities raise more, more efficiently. Check out our website! And like us here if you want to learn more as things get started!
Who is Calgary Reads? Just an amazing group of people dedicated to helping the 1 out of every 4 children in our community who fall behind their peers with reading (particularly in grades one and two). Children who, without help from a Calgary Reads program, are more likely to drop out of school before graduation. More likely to suffer self-esteem and health problems. More likely to be involved in crime and be under employed. And less likely to reach their fullest potential.
When you really get down to it, literacy is the most fundamental skill for learning that sets our children on the path to being successful, contributing members of a vibrant society. Luckily, with Calgary Reads, they’re in good hands.
And with your support this Christmas, Calgary Reads will be able to continue offering innovative, practical and highly impactful literacy programs for our kids.
