Magazines Deliver Holiday Gift of Literacy to Arctic Children and Families

While Santa’s helpers ready good cheer for the globe, “Team Duffy” – Beth, Dan, and their two children Rachel and Eddie in Ontario, Canada have marshalled a continental response to airlift over 3,000 magazines and comics to Inuit children and families north of the Arctic Circle in Nunavut, Canada for literacy.

Answering a request received by MagazineLiteracy.org from Nunavut schools, the Duffy family and their school – Villanova College of King City, Ontario – joined forces with Dan’s firm, Mid-Range Computer Group, and Owlkids, publishers of Owl, Chirp, and Chickadee magazines – to send magazines this week to readers in the Kugluktuk, Taloyoak, Gjoa Haven, Kugaaruk and Cambridge Bay communities in northern Canada. Comics collected in the United States by Comics For Heroes and Reading with Pictures, and magazines from Condé Nast, including Condé Nast Traveler will also be sent to the Inuit readers.
