We need volunteers to hand out materials, speak about our programs, and to promote Ripple Foundation. We want to encourage more young writers in grade 4-8 from Halifax and all of Nova Scotia to enter this year's Kids Write 4 Kids writing contest.

One of our previous winners, who lives locally will be reading her published title. We are looking for one of our volunteers to facilitate her Q&A at the end of her book reading. We will provide prompts and questions.
