YOU BUY, YOOBI GIVES
Through our partnership with The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada, Yoobi Classroom Packs are distributed to children in high-need areas all across Canada
WHY WE GIVE
Millions of kids in Canada do not have fundamental school supplies to learn and be successful. This affects not only their school work — it affects their conﬁdence. So teachers step in and spend their own money to make sure children can learn. We want to help alleviate the burden, and level the playing field so all kids have an equal shot at learning.
We work with trusted partners in Canada to distribute Yoobi Classroom Packs and ensure maximum impact for kids in need.
The Love of Reading Foundation has committed over $31 million to over 3,000 high-needs schools, which as inspired over 1 million students to fall in love with reading.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada are dedicated to providing safe, supportive places for children and youth to play, laugh, discover, and learn. They are Canada's largest child and youth focused non-profit organization serving 200,000 youth annually through life-changing programs that promote positive outcomes in education, active living, nutrition, and mental health.
