Being able to imagine oneself as part of the story is one of the most rewarding aspects of reading. But for many, finding characters and stories that reflect their experiences is a challenge.
We believe that every kid deserves to be part of the story!
That is why NSPIRG, with the help of our friends at Flamingo Rampant, are hoping to make it easier for children in Nova Scotia to read stories that reflect their lives! We will be sending library care packages to several elementary school libraries across the province, consisting of a selection of feminist, racially-diverse, LGBTQ-friendly story books!
Do you know a school who would benefit from a library care package? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject like “Project Flamingo” and tell us about them!
Because we are a small non-profit, we can only support packages for 6 schools at the current time. Would you like to make a donation, to help us purchase more books and continue spreading the joy of reading across the province?
