Johannesburg, South Africa- 12/01/15 – EasyDNA has recently made a donation to The Children’s Book Bank, a registered, Toronto based charity that supports childhood literacy by providing free books and literacy support to children in low-income neighbourhoods. The move is part of the company’s mission and ongoing commitment to make a positive contribution to society.
From Canada’s first storefront “book bank” in the Regents Park area of Toronto, The Children’s Book Bank collects and distributes gently used children’s books and distributes them free of charge to children who might not otherwise have a chance to own their own books.
EasyDNA firmly believes that through their support of these charities they can really make a difference to people’s lives. Commenting on the donation made to the Children’s Book Bank, the Sales and Marketing manager for EasyDNA states that “In its first five years of operation, The Children’s Book Bank gave away over 400,000 free books. The organisation has helped countless children build a future for themselves by giving them books. Whilst seemingly giving books may seem like a small gesture, the scarcity of books is the biggest obstacle to literacy, self development and growth. The Children’s Book Bank was a great charity to work with as we, as a company, firmly believe in education being the most important investment for a country and is key to reducing poverty and inequality”.
EasyDNA is a DNA testing Company that offers paternity testing, clinical testing and health testing services. The company operates through a network of over 25 offices across the world. The company has made donations and helped organisations in various ways including donations and free or discounted DNA testing services. EasyDNA has also set up funds which are aimed at subsidizing DNA testing and embarked on sponsorships. One of EasyDNA’s donations was to Ireland’s Children’s Hospice, Lauralynn
Finally, the Sales and Marketing manager for EasyDNA would like to say that “we believe that a small gesture can go a long way and change the lives of so many. The Children’s Book Bank has made a huge difference to the lives of so many families and children – their contribution to society through this selfless act is indeed priceless”.
