On May 5, 2015, the Foundation team along with actress and Gift of Reading spokesperson Salomé Corbo visited École Barclay, in Park Extension, to celebrate the presentation of the 400,000th brand new book since the program began 16 years ago.

Salomé Corbo read the pupils stories and took part with them in the postcard rally, when each child was invited to write a word of thanks to their book donor.
