The Canadian International Learning Foundation

Yesterday I posted about an upcoming book that my friend Neil has written based on his blog. Fellow friend and comedian Ryan Aldred quickly spotted it on Twitter and decided to spread the word himself. In doing so, he reminded me that I’ve been meaning to tell you all about the Canadian International Learning Foundation.

“The Canadian International Learning Foundation,” their website explains, “is a volunteer-run registered Canadian charity which provides education and develops schools in areas of the world affected by poverty, war and disease epidemics.” Ryan’s the president of the organization; indeed, he’s just one of a number of awesome people I know who have contributed to its ongoing success.

They do excellent and vital work, and I do hope you’ll check them out. To be honest, I should have told you about them long ago; Ryan dropped me a line a few weeks back and asked if I’d be willing to spread the word about one of their campaigns among my admittedly limited network, and I’m afraid I completely dropped the ball on that one in spite of my promises. I can only hope this post will make up for it.
