Today, April 1st, begins the Month of the Military Child. Throughout the month, BSF will be celebrating our littlest heroes with programs just for them. Kicking it off is an essay contest for military children with some exciting prizes, including a Barnes & Noble Nook!
It's been great to hear from the families that are connecting with this new technology and we've got 25 more free stories to give away! Perhaps the greatest surprise is to discover how much kids enjoy reading a 'be there bedtime story' too! We realize how challenging it may be for service members to access a webcam on a frequent basis, so we thought we would put some webcams into the hands of the kids at home where they can read to their parents who might be overseas.
Please welcome guest blogger, Alison Sansone, the owner and creator of Be There Bedtime Stories, with a free offer for the first 25 people to email firstname.lastname@example.org. In 2010, Be There Bedtime Stories generously offered free bed time stories for 10 military families. Now Alison is back to offer more!
Hey Military Families - I think we can help…
I'm launching a website that offers webcam bedtime stories for families that are far apart. I was inspired to build the site because of my frustration being so far from my nieces - unable to be a part of their development and unable to be recognized when I would visit once a year. Well naturally, grandparents and military parents certainly share the same, if not greater, frustration!
