Our goal is for each participant in the program to get a full VIP Experience. We want each child to know that their story matters. They are the hero on their journey. Hero is not a destination, it is made up of everyday hero decisions, and those decisions can begin TODAY! So although these numbers show we’ve told close to 2000 hero stories in multiple schools, from multiple countries and in several states, each story individually matters and the experience is important for the one!
In 2012 we launched My Story Matters, a 501c3 organization committed to bringing this experience to underprivileged children. As we’ve been working on these projects so many of our volunteers, other teachers in the schools, and community partners have asked, “How can I do this in my community?” We knew we couldn’t be everywhere so we have worked to create this curriculum so you can bring this program to your family, your school, and organizations in your community!
Watch as we follow the story of one family receiving their books.
There is something special about the magic moment when a book is received and enjoyed for the first time. A child gains confidence, their self esteem is increased, and they are reminded they are important. They see the power in telling their story and sharing it with others. Community volunteers decided to also make quilts to accompany this special delivery.Learn More
