PRHC donates 1,500 copies of Greta Thunberg’s book to First Book Canada

(Anders Hellberg)

Students and supporters in cities across Canada will be hitting the streets tomorrow for another global climate strike, following a week of protests and climate-related activities inspired by #FridaysForFuture, a movement inspired by Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg.

In a show of support for Thunberg – who was just nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize – Penguin Random House Canada has donated 1,500 copies of her book No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference (Penguin U.K.) to First Book Canada for distribution to schools across Canada. The books will be shared with winners of a contest, running Oct. 1-31, that calls on classrooms to share what they are doing to help protect the environment.

PRHC has also encouraged its employees – who are free to join the march – to participate in a week-long clothing drive to benefit Toronto’s Oasis Clothing Bank, and will be gathering up books tomorrow to donate to local service-oriented organizations throughout the city.
