November 29 2017 is Giving Tuesday, “a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others”. If you are thinking about how to participate, please consider making a donation of either funds or books to Books With Wings.
The schools we work with are in very isolated communities. In Manitoba, for example, our schools are fly-in only, and in Island Lake, the only way to pick up a book delivery is to drive a skidoo with a sled attached over a long frozen lake. There are no bookstores or public libraries. That’s why your support is so appreciated. Our connections to generous publishers and literacy organizations enable us to send the best and most popular kids’ books for as little as $1-$4. A small contribution goes a very long way!
