In honor of #GivingTuesday the Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) was delighted to donate 10 laptops to the Maria Montessori Education Centre in Calgary. This donation will be going low-income families that have children attending the Centre.
The Maria Montessori Education Centre provides an authentic, low tuition, Montessori community for Calgary’s children and their families. They are dedicated to nurturing and respecting each child as unique and valuable individuals as they develop skills that will enable them to become self-confident, caring citizens of the world. Through Montessori philosophy, students are encouraged to reach their highest potential academically, emotionally, and morally as they grow in respect for themselves, others, and our earth.
“To the young child we give guides to the world and the possibility to explore it through free activity; to the older child we give the cosmos, and a clear vision of how the cosmic energies act in the creation and maintenance of our globe.”- Dr. Maria Montessori

What is Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies, and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday. Check it out here.
