Last year during Raise a Reader Day I was able to meetup with Marc Chouinard and Trevor Linden. We flashed smiles, took some pictures, and signed some papers. Once again this year, Canucks organization members, players, firefighters, policemen and local politicians were out on street corners downtown handing out newspapers by donation.
The Raise-a-Reader campaign was created by The Vancouver Sun in 1997 to increase awareness of literacy and raise money to fund children’s literacy programs. Since our inception, Raise-a-Reader Vancouver has raised over almost $3.45 million in 10 years in support of children’s literacy initiatives throughout British Columbia. [Canada.com]
