We know these are unsettling days and an incredibly challenging period for many children and families. We believe the power of staying connected, sharing books and stories at home is perhaps more important now than ever before. Holding on to consistencies and reminders of goodness - like receiving a new book in the mail and cuddling up to share it - help provide an engaging and reassuring respite, especially for young children.
We’ve been working hard to ensure that we can continue delivering Imagination Library books to over 1875 children in Brantford and Brant County, providing online Story Time with Alicia and Ellie, Musical Motion Circle Time with Jane and Lucy, Zoom Parachute meetings for new moms and other online group meetings to connect and support families.
In light of the COVID-19 impact and challenges, we have an anticipated concern for our future fundraising efforts and report a drop in donations and cancellations of fundraising events.
Kids Can Fly is deeply concerned about the impact of COVID-19 and its impact on families and communities. We hope to be able to continue to provide some joy and learning opportunities during these challenging times by boosting literacy and creating a safe and secure bond with their loved ones.
Your donation will help us to keep supporting families virtually, sending books directly to the children's homes and providing some online activities and fun for the families.
Thank you for your local support in this global crisis!
