Save Handwriting in Canadian Schools! #BICFFYW

I am the first to admit that I love new gadgets and technology... But when it comes to taking notes, I'm a pen and paper kinda gal.  Nothing beats a good medium ballpoint black ink pen.  I love to doodle, and these make the perfect tool.  

With tablets and smartphones becoming the norm in schools and work places across the country, good, clean handwriting is becoming a lost art.  Moreover, it's far less a priority in Canadian schools than it ever was, meaning kids are losing out on this critical stage in development and education.

BIC is asking Canadian families to pledge to save handwriting with the Fight For Your Write campaign.

60% of learning in school happens before lunch making breakfast food, brain food. That’s why BIC Fight For Your Write is also partnering with Breakfast Club of Canada and donating $10,000 directly to the organization and giving an additional $10,000 (retail value) of stationery supplies to Canadian schools in need.
