At Raven Supply, we believe literacy has a far-reaching impact on individuals, and society as a whole. It can improve people’s situations and give them a means to make a positive difference in their community and the world in which we all live.
Our beliefs align perfectly with Room to Read, a global organization promoting literacy in developing countries. Room to Read’s mandate is to provide underprivileged children with an education. The organization opens libraries and schools in developing countries and operates educational programs for young girls who would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend school.
We are also committed to supporting local organizations.
Raven Supply is a proud partner of Room to Read’s Vancouver Chapter since 2013. We have launched our own fundraising campaigns to benefit Room to Read and ending illiteracy in developing countries. This year’s fundraising goal is $20,000 for a year of education for 50 girls in Laos.
To achieve this goal we have asked our vendors to provide us with one discount on one order per year. We then match all discounted funds and donate all monies raised to Room to Read’s Vancouver Chapter. We also ask our customers for a contribution which is also matched by Raven.
We have been thrilled with the success of these projects. Since 2013, we have raised over $250,000. If you would like to learn more about Raven Supply partnering with Room to Read, check out both our 2018 Room to Read Project and Our Work in Tanzania.
