Story Time with Soldiers 2011

Sometimes it’s the small things that mean the most…


At PaperBackSwap, we firmly believe in the power of reading… and the power of giving. We are excited to be able to extend our charitable work to those serving in the United States Armed Forces. Regardless of why or where they are deployed, these men and women and their families contend with danger, separation from loved ones and rigorous physical conditions. We believe that if we can ease their days at all, we should, and are ready to get started…with your help!

PaperBackSwap is proud to support our military personnel again this year by partnering with the nationally recognized nonprofit organization, United Through Reading.  Their mission is to unite families facing physical separation by facilitating the bonding experience of reading together.  One of the most difficult things a child can experience is having a parent deployed for an indeterminate period of time.  The United Through Reading® Military Program helps ease the stress of separation for military families by having deployed soldiers read children’s books aloud via DVD for their child to watch at home.
