Daily News Raise - a - Reader Campaign

Hope To Raise $50,000
To Support Literacy In Nanaimo
The Nanaimo Daily News will be blanketing Nanaimo coffee shops, gas stations and stores this Wednesday hoping to raise $50,000 to support Literacy Central Vancouver Island and Early Learning Vancouver Island.

The VI Raiders and the Nanaimo Clippers will be providing volunteers who will be handing out the special edition of the Daily News for donations to help improve literacy skills, which 40% of Canadians are reported to have difficulty with.

Comment: 40% of Canadians have reading issues?? I guess we aren't spending enough on our schooling programs, either that or the new crop of teachers are failing miserably.
