Parents reading daily to their children may be one of the greatest protective factors for families during deployment.
“To some it may just be a man being recorded reading a book but to me it was so much more. It was reassurance from my husband that I am not alone, that despite the miles he is supporting me, supporting our family and the new chapter of parenthood we are crossing into.”
– Hannah Simmons, UTR mom-to-be and military spouse
United Through Reading strengthens military families with shared reading and bedtime routines.
“We have found that having a regular, consistent bedtime routine helps not only Madyson, but us as parents too because we all know what to expect each evening once we say to Madyson ‘Okay, it’s 7 pm and it’s time to get ready for bed.’”
– Melissa Rognlie, UTR mom and military spouse
2018 #40MillionStories Goals
What difference would my donation make?
A donation of only $50 to United Through Reading will support one military family with storytime during the course of a deployment, or separation due to military assignment. The success of the 40 Million Stories campaign depends upon your generosity.
Your gift, large or small, makes a profound difference to these military families.
