National Random Acts of Kindness Day is today(Feb. 17)! I have a love hate relationship with us actually having a day like this. I wish we could do this EVERY day! I love opportunities to involve my kids in paying it forward and doing kind things for others!
In honor of today, UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) is releasing “Oliver & Hope’s Good Deeds Day,” a fun inspirational read for children ages 3-8. This is the fourth book in the award-winning Oliver and Hope series and it brings you along with Oliver and Hope as they meet their friends to clean up damage left by a big storm. But as soon as they begin, a mystery appears that eventually reveals true acts of kindness.
The best part of the Oliver & Hope series is the reason behind it. The creation of these beautifully-illustrated and written stories is inspired by the real-life journey of the thousands of children whom the books’ proceeds support. Every purchase of Oliver & Hope’s Good Deeds Day—and the other books and toys from the collection—will fund grants offered by UHCCF to help children gain access to medical-related services that are not covered, or not fully covered, by their parents’ commercial health insurance plan.
Since 2007, UHCCF has awarded over 13,000 grants valued at more than $35 million to children and their families across the United States. In the past four years, Texas families received more than 700 grants totaling more than $2,000,000 for treatments 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.

All four books of the Oliver & Hope series are available at Amazon through UHCCF.org/shop for $16.95 each for hard cover and $5.99 for soft cover.
