Major Canadian literacy campaign in the works

I am very pleased to announce that I am working on a major literacy campaign that has the potential to reach hundreds of thousands of Canadians. I can't say too much about it right now, not until everything and everyone is in place, but this will be an inspiring campaign that I believe will be featured prominently in the news, via word of mouth and online.

I am the campaign creator and coordinator, and I'm looking for 5 or 6 major corporate partners who are interested in literacy in Canada. I have already contacted some potential partners, but if you or someone you know may be interested, please email me.

I am also planning to bring in a literacy partner, and so far I've been contacted by two organizations that are interested. I am looking to partner with an organization that has successfully promoted literacy in Canada and has worked with other sponsors on previous events or initiatives. If you're a Canadian literacy organization and you're interested in my campaign, please email me. cherylktardif(at)

How will this literacy campaign affect Canadians in general? It will bring literacy issues to the forefront. It will inspire people to read more. It will encourage some to learn to read or to increase their reading skills. It will educate the public about illiteracy issues in Canada and how these issues affect Canadians.

I am so excited about this project, which has been simmering in my brain for a couple of years.

Happy reading, everyone!

Such a campaign is needed and will benefit readers and writers alike. In fact, it will benefit the entire nation. (The literacy rate is one of the major indicators of a nation's wealth and well-being) Be sure to offer us all a chance to assist you when the time comes that you need extra hands!

I agree with Eileen. It's important for this country to embrace the love of books again and for Canadian authors to be recognized for their contributions. Thanks for taking this and running, Cheryl! Anything I can do to help...
