#ReadItForward with The UPS Store!

This post is in partnership with The UPS Store supporting the #ReadItForward program. All opinions expressed are my own.

We are a family of fanatical readers: you’ll find Ethan curled up in his bed with a book and Lila and Mia are always asking me to read them a story. And of course as soon as the kids go to bed, I’m opening up a book. We love being able to visit different worlds and live different lives through the magic of storytelling. Which is exactly why I’m excited to tell you about #ReadItForward and what The UPS Store is doing so that everybody can read!

We all have favorite books, right? I’ll read anything and everything written by Lisa See, Stephen King, and a few others, but there are some books that will stay with me forever. Books from my childhood like Where the Sidewalk Ends, and all of the Little House on the Prairie books. Books that I can’t wait to read with my kids.

Why #ReadItForward?

Watching Ethan read some of his favorite stories like Love You When You Whine to the girls makes my heart melt! The gift of a book is a gift every child should have, and The UPS Store is making that possible.

Did you know The UPS Store has been getting books to underprivileged children since 2008 with their partnership with Toys for Tots? Every year they have a holiday donation drive to collect loose change and sell donation cards at their 4500 stores, and 100% of which goes to buy books for children who don’t have them. Since starting, they’ve raised more than $3 million and each year distribute nearly 5 million books.

I don’t know how I didn’t know this before, but now that I do I’ll be supporting the program every year. And even if you can’t afford to donate a book, you can still support them too! All you have to do is share their favorite children’s book (either a picture or chapter book) on social media along with the hashtag #ReadItForward. And when you do that, they’ll donate a dollar….until they reach $50,000!

And you don’t have to do anything fancy. Take a photo of the cover and tweet it with the hashtag #ReadItForward. Share a selfie with their favorite children’s book on Instagram. Share a list of your favorite book titles on Facebook.  Just remember to use the hashtag #ReadItForward.
