United Through Reading

Did you know one-third of all donations for an entire year are given to charities in the month of December alone?

There are lots of great charities out there. I read about one the other day, that I thought many of you would be interested in. If you’re looking for an organization to donate to, you might want consider this one.

It’s a program, sponsored by the USO, called United Through Reading. United Through Reading allows active duty service men and women to record themselves reading books to their kids. The DVD recordings are sent to and played for the child. The children are also allowed to keep the DVDs to watch again and again. The children’s reactions are also recorded and sent back to the service member encouraging them to read and record another book. It’s such a simple idea, with great benefits to participating families. The ultimate goals of this program are to ease the separation process between the service member and his or her family back home and eventually make returning home a bit easier.

If you would like to donate to this organization or if you are interested in doing any volunteer work for them, please feel free to contact them at 858-481-7323 or at [email protected]

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
