Community Dec 06, 2012 Ancaster News

The Telling Tales Festival supports local literacy initiatives through its fundraising efforts. This year, $10,000 in festival proceeds will be divided between three Hamilton-based literacy organizations, bringing total donated funds since the festival’s inception to well over $60,000.

Some $5,000 from this year’s festival will go to the Rotary Summer Literacy Program, $2,500 to the Read to Your Baby pilot project and $2,500 to Hamilton Literacy Council.

Each of these groups hasmet the requirements set out by the Telling Tales Literacy Funding Committee and speaks to the festival’s mission of building a national festival that promotes children’s literature and a love of reading, while raising awareness and support for local literacy in our community.
