826 Valencia

After Reading a Heart Breaking Work of Staggering Genius, and visiting the Pirate Supply Store in San Francisco, I started to research Dave Eggers a little more in-depth. I realized the Pirate Supply Store was actually the front of a Writing Centre for kids and that literacy was at the core of whole project. This led to more literacy and math centres for kids with themes like Super Hero Supply Store (Brooklyn), the Greenwood Space Travel Supply Company (Seattle), The Greater Boston Bigfoot Research Institute and additional 826 chapters are located in LA and Chicago. These projects are good for communities and also offer the opportunity for rich graphic design work. Starting a Toronto Chapter would prove a rewarding and challenging topic for thesis.
