Please Consider Joining Us in Supporting #SAVEWITHSTORIES
Last month Pipcorn was grateful to be able to do our small part during the Covid-19 crisis by making a donation to Save with Stories, a new charitable collaboration between Save the Children and No Kid Hungry that is helping kids who typically rely on school for food.
In the United States, 30 million students rely on schools for two, sometimes three, meals each day. With schools closed, millions of families are struggling to get the food they need. Save with Stories is providing crucial funds to food banks, mobile meal trucks and community feeding programs to provide nutritious meals and snacks to children in need, as well as educational toys, books and worksheets.
Save with Stories was created by actors Jennifer Garner and Amy Adams. To raise awareness and encourage people to donate, they are asking celebrities, authors and others to join them in reading children's books on social media. To help spread the word, Pipcorn co-founder Teresa Tsou read her daughter Elliott’s favorite bedtime story, The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boynton.
