KidCareCanada needs your help!

Can you spare a bit of time to volunteer? Your role will be to ensure the captions match the audio in our newly-captioned videos. Everything you need to participate can be found at this link:  http://kidcarecanada.org/closed-captioning-qa

We believe all of our videos are enjoyable so we think it will be a pleasant task.  We will be grateful if you can review one video (some are only a few minutes long), and VERY grateful if you choose to do more.
