First Book Canada, a famed Canadian charity with a focus on providing high-quality books to children in need, recently launched the 'Birthday Wish' Fundraiser in honor of its 10-year anniversary. Since its inception, the charity has distributed over 7 million books to children and youth from disadvantaged backgrounds across the nation.
The charity's Birthday Wish Fundraiser asks individuals to donate $10 CAD to First Book Canada in order to continue its mission of distributing educational resources to children. The funds received from this campaign will go towards purchasing books, school supplies, and other essentials for children. First Book Canada states that the money raised will go five times further thanks to its highly disconnected online marketplace that allows educators to purchase heavily discounted educational material for children in need.
