Get Involved with Children’s Literacy

Through helping 1000×5, you are ensuring that we continue to give the gift of literacy to children all over the Capital Region. As an efficient community based charity, you can be assured that any donations or help you give to us goes right back into your promoting literacy in our community.

Donate Books

We rely on donations of books for babies and preschoolers from members of the community. If you have books for children under the age of 5 that you no longer need, why not consider donating them to us? We will ensure that your books continue to put smiles on children all over the Capital Region. Get in touch with us to arrange a drop off.


The 1000X5 projects relies on donated books for babies and preschoolers. We appreciate all the families who take the time to drop off their gently used picture books at the local elementary schools in Greater Victoria, Saanich, and Sooke School Districts as well as several private schools.

Spread The Word

We rely on passionate community minded people like you to help spread the word about 1000x5 projects. As grass roots community based initiatives, local advocates for 1000x5 are indispensable to us achieving our goals.
