Support $200K for 200 Kids and Transform a Child’s Life

Imagine this: You’re in elementary school and are asked to stand in front of your classmates to read a page from a book out loud. For one in 10 Canadian children who has a learning difference, like dyslexia, this can be a daunting task. At LDS, we believe that all children with learning differences should have access to the critical individualized education support they need to succeed in school and in life. That’s why we are raising $200K to provide learning support to at least 200 more vulnerable children in 2023. With your generous donation, you can transform a child’s life today! 

Your charitable donation to “$200K for 200 Kids” will help LDS and our dedicated expert instructors support 200 more students so they can catch up to their classmates, gain confidence, and achieve greatness their way. Until December 31, 2022, every dollar you donate will be matched by a generous LDS supporter, doubling your impact.
