BRING CANADIAN BLACK HISTORY TO EVERY SCHOOL


Thanks so much for visiting our GOFUNDME page and supporting the critical work of bringing the real history of the Black Canadians who helped build our country to schools.  

 We are raising money to bring the ABC's of Canadian Black History Kit fully online and to DONATE Kits to schools in need. 

You can donate here OR send organizer Jo-Ann DaPonte message through this page about buying a Kit for a school.  We will help you find a school OR will send your donated kit to your choice of school!

Did you know that most teachers do not have access to easy-to-use, complete resources to teach the Canadian Black History stories that do NOT appear in our textbooks?  These stories  inspire our students, help heal our divisions, and equip our kids for the future. That’s why our schools  need The ABC’s of Canadian Black History Kit!

Visit the Blacbiblio website  and see below for Kit details. The Kit is in schools in Quebec, PEI and Manitoba and almost 100 Ontario schools adopted the Kit in 2021 for Black History Month.  

Thanks to the wonderful support from Rogers Sports  & Media, we've been able to increase our visibility and tell our story.  Please watch the video below to learn more and see the Kit!

  
We have been working hard since late 2020, raising funds to take The ABC's of Canadian Black History Kit  to make Canadian Black History learning accessible and affordable for schools and families across Canada.  With the help of our early supporters, we were able to launch our online MAKING CONNECTIONS Matching and Memory Game just in time for Black History Month 2021. The  Game will be available in French and English for Black History Month 2022!
