The Magic of Storytelling campaign's purpose it to inspire families’ imaginations, to spark a lifelong love of reading in kids and bring books to low- income communities across the country!
Over the years Disney has already provided over 61 million books and inspired and exposed so many young lives to a world that awaits them.
Join me and help spread the word about the Magic of Story Telling Campaign. As a teacher at a school in a low income community this cause holds a special place in my heart. I have seen the power of books, These kid thrive for knowledge and that all begins with books.
