Reading has been something I’ve loved since I was a kid. Sharing books with my kids is something I would consider magical. I love seeing their faces and their imaginations shine when my husband and I read books to them. This year I was thrilled when I heard that The UPS Store is making a $1 donation to the Toys for Tots Literacy Program for each use of the #ReadItForward hashtag on social media! Make sure you take part in this awesome campaign!
The UPS Store is launching a social media campaign this holiday season to encourage people to help spread the word about the power of reading. This entire month, The UPS Store will make a $1 donation (up to $50,000) on behalf of anyone who shares their favorite children’s book on social media using #ReadItForward. Social users are encouraged to share a video reading a favorite story book line, a photo of their favorite book or the title of a book on social media. What an amazing way to participate in spreading some holiday cheer, don’t you think!?
Please participate in this program by doing any of the following:
- Record a short video of yourself talking about your favorite children’s book and share using #ReadItForward
- Taking a selfie with their favorite children’s book and sharing it with #ReadItForward
- Tweeting the name of your favorite children’s book and share it with #ReadItForward
- Directly donating to the Toys for Tots Literacy Program
Share your favorite book and help the Toys for Tots Literacy Program! Here’s one of my shares on Instagram when we shared LA’s favorite book:
Details About The UPS Store & Toys for Tots Literacy Program
In an effort to help deliver the gift of reading to less fortunate children in the United States, The UPS Store® has launched its annual holiday donation drive for the Toys for Tots Literacy Program. The UPS Store locations across the country will collect loose change and sell donation cards to benefit Toys for Tots Literacy Program, a year-round initiative of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. One hundred percent of each dollar donated helps purchase books for children who need it most. Since partnering with Toys for Tots to launch the Literacy Program in 2008, UPS and The UPS Store network have raised more than $3 million to purchase books for underprivileged children nationwide. Through the partnership, The UPS Store has distributed more than 34.2 million books to children during the holiday season. That’s an average of 4.8 million annually.
