The coronavirus pandemic has turned every child’s life upside down. It is threatening children’s rights, disrupting their education, health care, mental health and well-being. The long-term impacts of COVID-19 will hit the most vulnerable the hardest, including remote Indigenous communities in Canada, and children living in warzones and refugee camps.

That’s why we’ve created Save with Stories. First launched in the US by Jennifer Garner and Amy Adams, every donation will help children and families affected by the coronavirus crisis, both here at home and around the world.

We’ll regularly share videos of your favourite people reading beautiful children’s books – perfect for firing up kids’ imaginations and giving grown-ups the chance to take a breath while they’re stuck at home.

Please give a helping hand

Your donation could make a big difference to children facing increasing hardship during the coronavirus crisis in Canada and around the world.

We’re working to address the most urgent needs of Indigenous families in Canada by training frontline health workers and caregivers on how to safeguard children and respond to their unique needs in a crisis. We’re providing mental health and psychosocial support for children experiencing stress and anxiety.

We’re also providing learning resources like books and toys so children can continue their learning while at home. Your support also helps deliver personal protective equipment to Indigenous communities to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Our teams are helping children around the world too, making sure they’re safe, healthy and can keep learning, no matter where they are.

Together, we can help families get through this. Please support our COVID-19 appeal here.

A big thank you to our publishing partners for all their support.
