Since 2005, 826CHI has been helping Chicago kids explore their creative writing skills. They offer free writing and tutoring programs for students age 6 to 18 as well as field trips and help for English language learners. But 826CHI is not your average after school program— they share their space with the “The Boring Store,” a spy shop whose proceeds benefit the program. So while the kiddies are getting help with their homework, parents can shop for invisible ink and lock picking kits.
We love that 826CHI does serious work with such a sense of humor, so to help them continue to offer their fun and free program to Chicago area kids Busy Beaver will be donating 10% of this week’s sales to 826CHI.
