Below is a special message from our Indigo Adopt a School Team.
Did you know that most of our school budgets don't allow for one book per child?
In response to the underfunding of Canadian public elementary school libraries, Indigo is running the Adopt a School program to support the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation. Between September 11 and October 1, Adopt a School unites Indigo customers, employees, schools and their communities in raising money to rejuvenate school libraries with new books for children across Canada.
This year’s program has two exciting new features: an e-gift card that gives books and an online grassroots fundraising challenge. The Adopt a School e-gift card is a great offer: for every $25 e-gift card you buy we’ll donate one book to a school in need, and you get to redeem the full value of the gift card in any of our stores or at chapters.indigo.ca. Buy one now!
Become a fundraiser for your chosen school by spreading the word to your friends and family: we’ll give a $25 Indigo gift card to the top fundraiser for each school and the top three fundraisers for all of Canada receive a Kobo eReader! Learn more and start your own fundraising campaign.
The power of Adopt a School is in the grassroots outreach between Indigo stores and a school in their community they raise money for. To date, we have put more than 46,000 books into the hands of children at 305 schools across Canada. Join us to help make this year even more successful!
