My name is Riley Gellatly, and I need your help!
I am a grade 11 Homeschooling student in Ontario, Canada, and I am on a mission to EMPOWER youth through the knowledge of the Rubik's Cube.
My goal is to teach 10,000 youth across Canada how to solve one of the world's most challenging puzzles and help empower a generation of students.
Today's youth NEED empowering! The right kind of empowerment! They need to know that they are equipped to handle the issues facing them, both today and in the future. They need to know that they can think quickly on their feet and make the RIGHT choices, find equitable solutions to life's problems and know that there is HOPE. Hope isn't found in monotony. It is found in being triumphant, victorious and successful in new and exciting ways! And what better way to get these indescribable feelings than by conquering one of the world's most challenging puzzles that only 5% of the global population can achieve!
This cube is not exclusive to anyone. I think of it as a one-size-fits-all cube!
You don't have to be the smartest, fastest or most popular kid in school. You only need a little patience, some determination and a PROVEN FORMULA.
Our formula for solving the cube has a 99.9 % success rate!
My original goal, was for my team and I to go from school to school in the Kitchener/Waterloo area in Ontario and teach 5000 students, grades four and up, how to solve the 3x3 cube. Then, all 5000 students would come together for an epic event of solving the cube simultaneously and break a Guinness World Record. With my incredible team and our steadfast dedication, we were right on track with meeting that goal. Between October 2019 - March, 2020 were had personally taught 2,500 students, their teachers and principals when the unexpected happened....COVID shut everything down! What we thought would be a two-week break to flatten the curve ended up being two years and almost destroyed a dream.....

Even with this setback, I can proudly state that the Cuber's Corner Team (www.cuberscornerclub.com/team) is now back and in full swing with our NEW online program so we can reach an even larger audience.
Our new goal is to teach and empower 10,000 students across Canada and ensure that they have the necessary support and materials (Cubes) they need to conquer the challenge of learning how to solve one of the world's most elusive puzzles. To achieve this, we will need to equip over 500 schools across Canada with a '30 Cube Set' for their library for classes to sign out.
We have created an online program that teaches anyone between the ages of 9-109 how to solve the 3x3 cube in an interactive, easy and FUN way. By the time we have strategically walked you through all the steps that include visual, audio and kinesthetic teaching tools, in any one of our comprehensive programs, you WILL have a solved cube - Guaranteed!
We have taken our PROVEN FORMULA that has already taught thousands of people and broken it down into three separate editions:
-Elementary Edition (Gr. 4-8)
-Student Edition (High School/Post Secondary)
-Life Edition* (Caregivers/Educators/Business)
*FIY...The Life Editions comes with a full breakdown for teachers or instructors to learn how to teach the cube to a class/group/large audience.
So, you might be asking, "What is the big deal about learning how to solve the Rubik's cube?"
Well, it is quite simple.
Learning how to solve the cube is one of the most empowering things you can do for yourself.
The benefits are endless, but here are just a few key ones.
-pride of accomplishment
-improved memory skills
-stronger problem-solving skills
-faster pattern recognition
-heightened spatial awareness
-sharper critical thinking skills
-it gives HOPE because it fosters optimism
I am sure by now you can see why I am so passionate about teaching people how to solve this fantastic toy. Actually, this is not a toy - it is a tool! A tool that EMPOWERS!!!
I am excited to announce that I am offering a FREE 8-week online 'Challenge', starting Thursday April 14th, 2022, for anyone on the planet to join me and some of my team members to come, have some FUN and learn how to solve the Rubik's cube. They are short 30-minute Live Zoom calls on Thursday evenings that will walk you through one step each week. Leaving you lots of time to practice each step in between.
The fun doesn't end there. At the end of the eight weeks, I will be hosting a FREE Live Summit Event on June 3rd, 2022.
Absolutely EVERYONE is welcome to join. This inspiring and epic event will be packed with breakout rooms for some friendly competitions, Q & A, guest speakers, giveaways, and more! We will also be holding a step by step complete walk-through of how to solve the cube with our proven formula, for everyone who didn't get a chance to join the 'Challenge'. AND if enough people join this epic event, we just might even break a world record....!!!
It is my wish that every man, woman and child -ESPECIALLY THE KIDS, are truly inspired by this. Because frankly, we are the future....!
The kids of today are the leaders of tomorrow! We are the ones who will be running our governments, our schools, our hospitals and senior homes. So empowering kids to make the right choices today will vastly impact their future as well as YOURS!
The cost of an endeavor like this, is huge and this is why I need your help!!!
To provide 500 schools with a set of 30 cubes, is in the ballpark of $90,000-$105,00, depending on the recent inflation hikes on products. But this investment into the lives of our future generation, AND their caregivers/educators/corporate leaders, is nothing short of guaranteeing a better future for EVERYONE, including YOU!!!
And on top of these product expenses, we also need to consider the costs incurred for the website, editing software, registration and copyright protection, and so much more.
Now, we believe in keeping this investment local for each person. So with your donation, whether it be $7 (one cube) or $237 (30 cube set), or anywhere in between, we want you to be supporting your community as much as possible*. We are generating a list of schools by province and city on our website, and it is being updated DAILY. If you don't see a specific school that you would like to sponsor, please request it in the comments section of your contribution, and we will be sure to direct it accordingly.
*Cuber's Corner holds the right to evenly distribute funds to schools across Canada, if certain areas are being saturated and others neglected.
Learning to solve the 3x3 cube changes a person FOREVER. Something shifts within them. Ideas and dreams that were once deemed impossible are now being revisited. Our comprehensive program, a little patience, and a splash of determination are all they need to succeed! This will be a gift that just keeps on giving!
Please help change a child's life FOREVER! Simply state your province, choose a school or we can choose one for you, and state the amount being donated, and we will ensure that those children are equipped with EVERYTHING they need to conquer the cube.
WE WILL BE MATCHING EVERY SPONSORED SET, BY GIFTING our comprehensive COMPLETE PROGRAM, to the respective school.....!!!
Running this program is a 'Labour of Love,' but it takes funds to keep it going. If you feel inclined to add a donation to go towards the operating of Cuber's Corner, that would be greatly appreciated. Please specify this amount separately.
On behalf of myself and my team, we sincerely thank you for your time and generosity. Together, we will be raising the bar on the emotional and intellectual levels of a generation of kids and letting the world know that you and your contribution to the program stand behind them and their brighter future!
Thank you and happy cubing,
