Little Book - Big Laughs helps families who need it most by funding child medical grants for families in need. The proceeds from Little Book - Big Laughs help subsidize families who are going through the most difficult journey of their lives. Trying to get their sick kids healthy again.
Little Book - Big Laughs is a Big Help
Try to imagine for a moment that your son or daughter is sick. Not the kind of sick that requires a doctor's visit. The kind of sick that makes you feel like you got punched in the gut. The kind of sick that requires multiple specialist visits, surgeries, chemo, or other advanced treatments. The kind of sick that makes you feel like you might lose a part of yourself at any moment, because you might lose your child at any moment.
Now add to that the looming bills that are piling up and the stress of figuring out how you're going to pay them. Your child could by dying, and your financial future could be, as well. That's more stress than any family should have to carry, but it's happening all across this country. That's why Little Book - Big Laughs is so near and dear to my heart.
Little Book - Big Laughs is a series of two books designed to give joy and laughter to kids and to help the families of those kids by helping them to pay for the huge medical bills associated with protracted illness. The Little Book - Big Laughs Riddle Book includes over 500 riddles, and the Little Book - Big Laughs Knock-Knock Book has over 350 knock-knock jokes. All of the jokes and riddles were submitted by kids and are designed for children aged 4 to 12.
Both of these great books are distributed by the UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation (UHCCF) and are used to help fund grants which help families pay for children's medical expenses not covered or fully covered by normal insurance. In fact, since 2007, UHCCF has funded more than 10,000 medical grants totaling more than $29 million. They're doing important work!
In addition to the Little Book - Big Laughs books, UHCCF also publishes the award-winning Oliver & Hope's storybooks as well as other fun child toys and products, and they're all available on Amazon. They all also help kids in need.
Great Work with a Little Book
The Little Book series offers hope, joy, and financial help to the families who need it the most. UHCCF has helped so many families, and they want to help so many more. If you know a child who loves books like these, or if you know a sick child who needs a pick-me-up, please consider purchasing the Little Book - Big Laughs Riddle Book or the Little Book - Big Laughs Knock-Knock Book. It's a purchase that's worth so much more than the cost of the book, because it does so much to help families who desperately need it. You can find the Little Book series on Amazon for $5.99 each.

Aww, this is great. My oldest son loves telling jokes, so he would love this.
I can't think of a better cause than this. I can't imagine having to worry about bills while your child is in the hospital.
These sounds great! I'm sure my daughters would love to hear these. It can be nice to have something like this when they're feeling down.
What an amazing cause! Laughter may not be able to cure anything but it sure does help!
Now that is using their heads. Make something fun that the kids can enjoy when they are sick, stay happy through difficulties and on top of that it raises money for those same kids! Great idea.
I love the idea to share laughter while raising support and awareness. I donate to St. Judes several times a year and this seems like an equally worthy endeavor. Maybe I'll pick some up for stocking stuffers.
Such a fantastic cause and I love the fact that they are using humo. The families in these situations have enough weight on their shoulders.
I'm have to get these. Not only would my son enjoy them and we'd have some great laughs, but I love the cause behind them.
Sounds like a cute book. Bet parents with little kids would be interested in checking it out.

Oh my goodness, how cool. We love books like this and knowing they help others is a great idea. Thanks for the info,
This is a great way to raise money for family's in need. I will have to pick up a copy to read with my kids.

It seems that kids are always loving to tell jokes. I love how this is all for such a great cause as well too.
My kids would love these books! What a great way to raise families who need the help.
When we were little we used to read joke books and riddle books to one another. It wasted away hours and we thought we were so grown up. I bet kids today would love these books just as much.

This is so great. I love the cause and the books sound great.
As a child, I loved, loved books like that. These are perfect gifts for nieces and nephews while doing some good too!
Gotta love a good joke book. Glad to see these out, will have to give them a read!
