  • Give the magic of reading this holiday

    Do you remember how magical the holidays were when you were nine?

    Baking cookies, enjoying holiday cards and curling up with a book in front of the fire – these are just a few things that reading opens the door to.

    It’s easy to forget that reading is so much more than being able to read books at school; there’s a whole world out there that is closed to struggling young readers. A world of magic, make-believe and never-ending knowledge.

    At ONE TO ONE, struggling young readers are paired with a volunteer tutor to read in an environment where it’s okay to take risks, make mistakes, and learn at their own pace.

    Please give, and open a world of magic to struggling young readers this holiday.

    The impact of your gift will be doubled this year. The Francis Family Foundation has again generously offered to match every single donation made to ONE TO ONE between today and December 31, 2018, up to a total of $15,000 for one year. This means that for one entire year, your monthly Page Turners commitment of $25 will result in ONE TO ONE receiving $50 per month, your one-time gift of $250 will become $500, and so on!

    Giving Tuesday Triple Match. If you give on 27th, 28th or 29th November, IGA Stores of BC will generously match your donation, together with the Francis Family Foundation’s gift matching this means your gift will be TRIPLE MATCHED!

    ONE TO ONE needs your support!

    Since 1989, ONE TO ONE Literacy has supported children from diverse and underserved communities to help develop to their full potential. Our approach is to initiate early, critical intervention into the lives of at-risk children. Children who do not have an adult to read with them at home, or for whom English is not their first language, fall behind in reading and literacy skills and never catch up. It is these children, who might otherwise fall through the cracks in the system, who most benefit from ONE TO ONE’s program.

    The program is available at no cost to schools or students. The ONE TO ONE Literacy Society is a registered charity and our program is completely funded by grants and private donations.

    Your gift will be used to purchase new books and literacy resources for the student, train new volunteer tutors and provide program support to the students, volunteer tutors and schools.year!
