United Through Reading (UTR) serves Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, National Guard, Reserves, and Special Operations Forces for all types of separation including deployment, drill weekends, and duty nights by providing service members the opportunity to record a video of themselves reading books aloud for their children. Then, the recording and a free copy of the book read aloud are sent home to the family so they can watch and read along. This program creates a lasting connection between deployed parents and their children, encourages literacy, makes the time apart more manageable, and reintegration after deployment much easier. As a military spouse AND children’s literacy advocate, this resonates so deeply with me.
Just $15 will sponsor a shared storytime for one family. My personal goal is to sponsor a shared storytime for 100 families. Your donation of any amount is greatly appreciated and will go directly towards the purchase of books for these families.
Usborne Books & More will match your donations at 50% allowing me to sponsor 150 families.
Thank you for helping support our military service members and their families (like mine) by providing togetherness through shared storytime.
