UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation :: New “Oliver and Hope’s Superhero Saturday” Book to Help Families in Need #UHCCF

Disclosure: This post is brought to by UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation.

The new inspirational children's book, “Oliver and Hope’s Superhero Saturday," was just unveiled by the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) this past weekend at the North American International Toy Fair in New York City! This exciting new adventure is the third book in the award-winning Oliver & Hope™ series, and proceeds help fund UHCCF grants.

Filled with colorful illustrations and a heartwarming story of friendship, resiliency and imagination, this 32-page book is sure to delight your youngsters age 3-8. When the characters put on their hero capes, they have fun pretending to save a pirate ship, rescue a hot air balloon and face an evil mud monster. But when they discover their friend Chewie™ the English bulldog really needs their help, the friends must work together to become real heroes.

“We created the Oliver & Hope series to provide joy and inspiration for children. We are grateful to have received such positive feedback on the books, especially since the proceeds from the books and toys are helping children access medical care that will improve their health and quality of life,” said UHCCF President Matt Peterson.

All three books from the Oliver & Hope™ series are available for $13.95 each. To purchase this new book and more from the Oliver & Hope™ series, visit uhccf.org/shop.

I never heard of this charitable organization-but it is certainly a worthy one which many people unfortunately need. The books look adorable and I will see if I can think of anyone I can buy them for.

What a great organization! Medical expenses can be such a burden to some families, and it's nice to hear that some health plans are giving back. I'll keep an eye out for this book. ;)
