Reid Supported

The Children's Book Bank

Why I chose to support The Children's Book Bank

There are so many places we can help others, but it’s really nice to be able to do it locally in my city. We even went to visit (in a snowstorm) to see the neat things the Children’s Book Bank does for kids in Regent Park and downtown Toronto.

Reid's Gifts

we raised money for the children’s book bank and some for a memento on our family trip.

Why I chose my gifts

My grandparents came to Canada for university a long time ago. They taught me to give back to my community as others have done for us. I think it is interesting that as well as novels like Percy Jackson and Harry Potter, the Children’s Book Bank has dictionaries and thesauruses to help people learn English so they can get work and help their families.
