Blog: Vigilant Futures becomes a corporate sponsor of Raise-A-Reader

Sep 30, 2010 11:00 AM ET

We’ve always been involved with our community in one way or another, but last year, we decided to focus our efforts on promoting youth education in and around the Montreal community. Since then, we’ve partnered with local charities, like Youth in Motion, and schools that promote higher education too. But higher learning is pretty difficult when you don’t have the basics – like reading – mastered.

For a few weeks in the month of August, Vigilant Futures’ employees bid on items on an internal silent auction with proceeds going to the Montreal Raise-A-Reader 2010 Campaign. My very generous colleagues raised $4, 448.10 and every cent will make its way to those who need it.
