This is my fourth annual Raise-a-Reader day and it’s something I look forward to each year. The streets of downtown become populated with members of the Canucks organization (past and present) and in exchange for a donation to the Raise-a-Reader program, you get a copy of the Vancouver Sun and the opportunity to meet said Canucks.

Raise-a-Reader is a national initiative to promote and support childhood literacy. In the Lower Mainland we have the Vancouver Sun Raise-a-Reader Program. Upcoming events include a Read-a-Thon which children can sign up for through their elementary school, as well as Word on the Street, taking place this Sunday.
