The Flag Shop has been very fortunate to work with amazing individuals and organizations all over the country. With our ‘Commendable Customer’ blog entries we want to focus the spotlight on the groups that make our business thrive and our communities better.
“Decoda is derived from the word “decode,” which means to create understanding; to unravel the mystery – literacy helps us make sense of the modern world.” – Decoda website
Decoda Literacy Project is the only BC-wide organization that works to support individuals, families and communities with literacy improvement projects. With 15% of British Columbians at a Level 1 literacy rate or below, organizations like Decoda are important in the economic resiliency of our province. Literacy makes people more employable which can raise the standard of living for individuals and families.
We are proud to have worked with Decoda this year as they made a big splash across the province for Literacy Month in September. From Prince George to right here in Vancouver, cities flew custom-printed flags from The Flag Shop to draw awareness to the importance of literacy. Custom paper flags and buttons were also used to celebrate the events.
Congratulations to Decoda in their success this year and may they continue to grow and help people thrive through literacy!
