Please help me support United Through Reading -- an organization that connects U.S. military families and promotes literacy.
UTR offers military service members the opportunity to be video-recorded reading books to their children at home. This program creates emotional connections between parents and their children, encourages literacy, and makes homecomings easier.
In 2015, with the help of more than 500 volunteers, United Through Reading served more than 100,000 beneficiaries, at nearly 200 recording locations around the world distributing more than 25,000 books to military children -- adding up to more than a million bedtime stories.
Military deployments are tough on service members and their families -- tougher than the 10 miles and 20 obstacles in this year's Atlanta Mudder. Please consider donating to UTR to support those who protect our freedom.
