Welcome Baby

Campaign Ended Sept. 23, 2016

Today, you have a wonderful opportunity - a chance to do something life-changing for an Edmonton child.

Think about how important reading is to you. It gives you the opportunity to think, explore and grow. 

Studies show that early reading experiences are vital to children’s health, development and success later in life. Unfortunately some Edmonton children will struggle to experience the gift of reading. Currently, less than 50% of Edmonton young children are ready to start kindergarten*. And what’s really startling, Edmonton children are lagging behind compared to Alberta as a whole.

With a gift to EPL, you will put books and early literary resources into the hands of new parents and their baby. You can help bring the joy of reading to the newest and youngest members of our community. A Welcome Baby early literacy kit is only $25 per baby. Will you help an Edmonton child succeed?

You can give a baby the gift of reading. Be a hero to an Edmonton child, make your donation now.
