Our Partnership with First Book Canada
“The great book for you is the book that has the most to say to you at the moment when you are reading. I do not mean the book that is most instructive, but the book that feeds your spirit. And that depends on your age, your experience, your psychological and spiritual need.”
― Robertson Davies, Canadian author.
According to First Book Canada, almost 25% of Canadian households do not have a single book. That is both tragic and inconceivable. First Book’s mission is to rectify this situation, and Pâmoison has chosen to help them through a donation partnership.
First Book Canada has been “providing equal access to quality education for kids in need since 2009”. They bring books to Educators, Schools and Libraries in many communities across Canada. They provide ressources where needed, and give children the tools they require to optimize their learning experience. According to their polls, children receiving their very own books have increased self-esteem and a new interest in reading. As well, First Book delivers school supplies, such as backpacks, writing materials and computers where needed. They also have a website Marketplace where books and supplies can be purchased by schools and through programs for children at a lower cost.
Pâmoison is proud to be contributing to the First Book Canada mission. Through Giveaways and Profits and Proceeds Events, we will be helping to provide deserving young people with books of their own.
