Hey Little Robot Friends Community,
What a time!? We hope you and your loved ones are keeping safe and healthy during this global pandemic outbreak. Here in Toronto, our schools have been ordered to close until (for now) April 5th. All bars and restaurants are switched to take-out only mode. Countless of businesses are suffering as we speak.
As a small brick-and-mortar business owner, it feels like we were hit by a virtual tsunami. All the sudden no one can come into our doors. Overnight our financial projections crumbled into nothing. We had to cancel our March Break Camp for the safety of our community, and we are unsure whether Summer activities will go ahead. While we are no stranger to problem solving, this one is huge and came out of nowhere, we send love and strength to everyone facing this global challenge together.
We are offering FREE no-contact home delivery of products if you order Cubby or Paperbot Kits from our online shop and live in the East End community of Toronto [Broadview to Victoria Park, O'Conner to the Lake]. Your orders will be placed and packed with proper sanitary measures and we will do residential drop-off ourselves. For all others, we can still use Canada Post (thank you postal workers!)
We're ramping up some online content production and will be bringing the beloved Coding Club back in some capacity. We are determined to keep our excellent educators employed and we believe kids need all the STEAM learning they can get, now more than ever.
Your continued support means everything to keep our work going. We are ushering in a Brave New World and our next generation will have to lead us when we are the old and the frail, so let's raise the best possible humans together. We promise to bring you creative content and materials for raising curious, tech-savvy kids.
Wash your hands, stay home, and go bake some cookies!
Mark, Ann, Phuong, Andrea, Jordanne, Michelle, Paul and the rest of LRF.
