It's a new week of #BandofHeroes, where we love to celebrate positive news from our partners in response to the on-going Coronavirus pandemic. Up next, a brand that all Canadians love, Indigo. The brand is committing $1 million to support literacy in high-needs communities across Canada. Read on to learn more about Indigo’s initiative. 

The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation commits $1 million to families in need across Canada

With schools being closed due to COVID-19, Canadian families no longer have access to the educational resources that school libraries usually provide. The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation has created the Indigo Love Reading Community Response Fund, committing $1 million in books and educational resources to support Canadian children communities in need during the Coronavirus pandemic, so their children can keep receiving education at home. 

“Books are critical to education and as a vehicle to ’travel’ to new places and ‘meet’ new people. This is important always and especially at this moment,” said Heather Reisman, Chair of the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation.

Partnering with Canadian organizations to distribute books across the country

The Foundation has partnered with three Canadian organizations to help distribute books to communities in need across the country: Jays Care Foundation, Martin Family Initiative, and Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada. 

“Now, more than ever, we are thankful to have a teammate like the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation to break down educational barriers for kids who need it most. Their generous donation will further literacy opportunities for thousands of kids in Jays Care programs across Canada.” Said Robert Witchel, Executive Director of Jays Care Foundation.

Providing grants to Canadian non-profit organizations 

Indigo also commits to provide grants to local non-profit organizations that currently serve children and their families in the communities that need it the most. Applications are open now and organizations are encouraged to apply at loveofreading.org.

The Indigo Love of Response Community Response Fund is an addition to a series of programs such as the Literacy Fund Grant and Adopt a School program, which provide educational resources and better access to books to elementary schools. Since it was created in 2004, the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation has asupported over 3,000 schools and over million students by providing $31 million dollars in funding.

These are only a few new initiatives that Indigo is doing to respond to communities they serve during this time. To date, Indigo has also given over $1,092,000 to local youth sports teams in North America through FlipGive.

    Canada is one of the world's most educated countries. In 2015, 90% of Canadians aged 25 to 64 had finished high school, and 66% had received a post-secondary educational diploma. Both of these statistics are higher than the OECD averages of 78 and 40 percent, respectively. Traditional classes are more inconvenient than online classes. Online programs, on the other hand, have significant drawbacks, leading some students to ask if they should hire someone to complete an online course for them. As a result, online class help was founded to provide a secure website where you may hire an online class expert to complete my online course for you.

    It is not a very easy thing to know how to find a good essay writing service. This task may at times become very confusing, especially if you do not have a clear idea of what kind of essay writing service you are looking for. Now, there are different kinds of essay writing service out there and sometimes, the ones that you hire may turn out to be mediocre at best. This is why it is essential that you at least have some idea of what you are looking for in order to make your search more effective. Of course, the first place that you can start off with is the Internet. The Internet is certainly a great way of finding what you are looking for. I highly recommend reading the OnlineWritersRating reviews to figure out which writing service is the best to partner with.

    This is a great initiative to help the communities and the needy people all across. As we all are facing hard times especially, the students who are not been able to study. But these kinds of activities can help people and make a great impact on society. We must remember that united we stand, divided we fall.
