Testimonials

The Nobody project was an overwhelming success in my classroom. I’ll never forget how intrigued the kids were by the suitcase that sat at the front of the room for several days. Once Nobody was introduced to them, they jumped at the chance to take Nobody on a journey that demonstrated the power of giving back and the impact that being involved in community service has on our character.– Wayne Hodgson, Elementary Teacher – Nelles Elementary – District Schoolboard of Niagara

Joan Hayward, Past Rotary District 7070 Governor, District Chair for Literacy
Who Is NOBODY? is truly unique and has had tremendous success in Ontario Schools. Teachers like it because it does not take very much time and is not an ‘add-on’ to an already heavily compacted curriculum. Students like it because of its uniqueness and their ability to decide how they are going to make the program their own.

Shelley Klugman - Leo Baeck Day School, Jewish IB (International Baccalaureate) World School
This project empowered our youngest students in our school, the JK class, showing them that they had what it took to make a difference in the lives of others. In turn it boosted their self-esteem and taught them to be open minded and have empathy and kindness. I highly recommend this program for children of all ages. Introduce it, sit back, and be blown away by the natural instincts in children to protect.
