Book released in September, National Literacy Month
With the help from dozens of kids from two years old to teens, the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation has collected family-friendly jokes for three new joke books recently released in time for National Literacy Month, which is recognized in September.
The joke books provide smiles and laughter while encouraging early reading among children, an important factor in the health of a child. In addition, proceeds from the books will be used to fund child medical grants for families around Florida.
The three joke books – Cool Jokes for Summer, Sweets, Treats & Eats, and Holidays, Celebrations & Birthday Jokes each include more than 300 hilarious jokes. The books are ideal for children ages 4 to 12 and are available on Amazon for 5.99 each.
UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation is currently accepting child medical grant applications at www.uhccf.org.
Since 2007, UHCCF has awarded 14,000 grants valued at over $37 million to children and their families across the United States. Grants are typically used to help pay for medical services and equipment such as physical, occupational and speech therapy, counseling services, surgeries, prescriptions, wheelchairs, orthotics, eyeglasses and hearing aids.
