First Book Canada, a registered charity, provides new books and educational resources to Canadian children from low-income families, addressing one of the most important factors affecting literacy – access to books. In 2014, we granted over 825,000 new books to children across the country. Through work with publishing partners, an ever-expanding network of volunteers, and over 3,000 book recipient groups, First Book Canada grants children in need unprecedented access to free and low-cost books. First Book Canada works through existing community programs and literacy efforts already serving this population, elevating the quality of these programs with additional mission-related resources.

Growth of the soul is our goal, and there are many ways to encourage that growth, such as through love, nature, healing our wounds, forgiveness, and service. The soul grows well when giving and receiving love. I nourish my soul daily by loving others and being vulnerable to their love. Love is, after all, a verb, an action word, not a noun. Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.
