Changing Lives with Laughter

Category: Parent Points

With the help from Claire (only 5 years old) in Hattiesburg, the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation has collected family-friendly jokes for three new joke books to be released in time for National Literacy Month in September.  The joke books not only provide smiles and laughter, but can also help encourage early reading among children, an important factor in the health of a child. Proceeds from the books will be used to fund child medical grants for families in Mississippi.    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 4-12, but can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Books are available on Amazon for $5.99 each.     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.
