Dogs can do so much for so many different people. To hear why Owen loves the Dog Tales program through @literacyforlifefoundation read his story below! My name is Owen and I am 8 years old! I never used to like reading. Some of the words are really hard and I would get upset and so I didn’t want to read. I was so happy when my teacher told me that I would be one of the kids reading to a dog at school! I am always excited to go to sleep Monday night because I know the next day is Tuesday and I get to read to one of the Dog Tales dogs! Since I started the program, my mom says my reading is a lot better and I don’t get so sad when I don’t know a word. We don’t have a dog at home so I read to my stuffed animals, they listen really well! I was really nervous the first day to read to a dog but it was AWESOME and I loved the program! #KidsOfAlberta Donate today using the link in bio to help more kids like Owen reach their reading potential and have your donations matched up to 50% through the Birdies for Kids presented by @altalink program!
Introducing the Shaw Charity Classic Kids of Alberta campaign! Over the next few months we will be featuring stories of kids from across Alberta that have been impacted by charities participating in Birdies for Kids presented by @altalink. By supporting Birdies for Kids, you are helping make a difference in the lives of children and youth just like these ones. Interested in learning more or supporting these organizations? Visit the link in the bio! Here's what Lucy has to say about her time with @YouthCentralyyc “By joining the Mayor’s Youth Council at Youth Central, I’ve been able to take part in a bunch of great projects. As a girl wanting to go into tech, I aspire to challenge the stereotype that computer science is only meant for guys. Competing in the Innovation Challenge was so much fun developing a website, app or business plan that addressed a social issue in Calgary. I hope to inspire more girls to be in tech, and Youth Central has helped me do that!”
