New Storybook Raises Funds for Children’s Medical Care in Texas

Oliver & Hope's Good Deeds Day

Just in time for National Random Acts of Kindness Day (February 17), UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) has released its fourth book in the Oliver and Hope™ series, “Oliver & Hope’s Good Deeds Day.”

UHCCF combines messages of kindness and generosity with creative storytelling in this latest children’s book chronicling the adventures of Oliver the loveable bear and Hope the spirited butterfly.

The entire Oliver & Hope series is inspired by the real-life journeys of the thousands of children whom the books’ proceeds support. Every purchase of “Oliver & Hope’s Good Deeds Day” — as well as the other books and toys from the collection — will fund grants offered by UHCCF to help children gain access to medical-related services.

In recognition of National Random Acts of Kindness Day, UHCCF is making book donations at children’s hospitals, elementary schools and community-based organizations in cities across the country.

In the past four years, UHCCF has awarded Texas families more than 700 grants valued at approximately $2 million.

Families can receive up to $5,000 annually per child 16 years of age or younger ($10,000 lifetime maximum per child). Recipients do not need to have insurance through UnitedHealthcare to be eligible.

All four books of the Mom’s Choice and Dr. Toy award-winning Oliver & Hope series are available at Amazon through
