Anything and everything I can do to support our troops and their families should be done. And so easy too! Thanks to all who defend us and their great families.

I want to thank all the military personnel who serve our country. As a mother of a son in the guard, I know the emotional cost of having him deployed. I am proud to support this cause and help children of deployed soldiers.

As a military member who utilized the program while overseas I'm glad to have the chance to give back!

When you make a donation, drop off a box at Goodwill, etc., that's kind of it and you don't really see where that donation ends up or just how it makes a difference to someone. As someone who's been in service and still has family and friends in service, trust me when I say you *are* making a BIG difference to someone out there! Thank you PBS and everyone donating! =)

My husband used this program while deployed in 2009-2010 in Iraq. Our children were 3 and 6 at the time and it was hugely helpful. First, the children enjoyed the stories and I have saved the books and videos for them. Secondly, it was a way for my husband to feel connected to the children and that he could "help out" with them while deployed. I am happy to donate book credits and I hope that others will generously do so as well. Thanks Paperback Swap for particpating in this awesome program!

My husband and I are both Veterans and are honored and proud to do anything to help our fellow Military members. In fact, half my family is Military and the other half are Police Officers. I am so glad that PBS sees this as a great program and continues to sponsor it. Thank you for allowing us to give back to those who serve!

As the wife of a soldier who will be deploying soon and the mother of three boys, I'm so grateful for programs like this. This is yet another example of why PBS is such an amazing community!

I'm so happy to be able to, in some small way, say "Thank You for all you do!!" to our troops! :o)

Any program that gets books into kids' hands is great, but this military program is extra special. Thanks for giving me a chance to donate to a worthy cause.

This brings tears to my eyes, having dad or mom so far away for years at a time. How tough is that? This program is awesome.

Was not given the option of donating credits, only money, which I did but "truth in advertising". I don't think so.

me too Sylvia, what happened? I've never heard of donations stopping coz the goal was reached.. I thought they would take all they could. I have credits, but I'm not flowing with cash right now

Hey everyone, I want to give some credits but only get the option to donate PBS money. Anyone figure out how to do it yet?

Would love to donate some book credits but can't do it cause we have reached the goal??? I did go ahead and clean out my little bit of $ in my account. Will check back later to see if we can donate more!

My husband is currently deployed. He was able to read each of our 4 children a book and send them the DVD and book. Such a neat program! The kiddos loved seeing their daddy reading them a book on the TV- my two year old's face lit right up as she read her book with daddy!!! Thanks so much for donating to this program to help families like ours during a difficult time when daddy is away!

I'm so proud to be connected with a group that met the goal so quickly! It just shows how when we each do a little it adds up to so much and helps so many.

How do I donate credits? It only gives me the option of donating 'PBS Money'. Does anyone know how I can do this? Thanks, Karin

I would have donated, but it seems like book donations closed really fast :-) I've got 20 credits for you if I can still get in. CarmenCS

This is amazing! When my husband was in the Navy, between patrols, we'd video him reading to and playing with our very young son so he'd know his daddy when he came back home. I'm so thrilled to help others do the same!

I was willing to donate my PBS money, but it doesn't seem to be working. Is there a minimum donation or something?

Hey, folks, let's not forget how we obtained the freedoms and the great lifestyle we have - support those who put their life on the line every day for us!

Great program, but... could we have the opportunity to donate again, soon? 2012 is almost gone, but a "Story Time With Soldiers 2013" would be welcomed! Thanks for all you do!

When I was an officer in the US Navy, I read books to my children via this program. It was wonderful for my children and I, to stay close during long separations at sea. Thank you for supporting this program, PBS members, it means so much to the service members out on their deployments and stationed overseas!

Is this program still going on? It says 2011.. Has there been any thing since then.. Is there a 2014 donation? Janet Donaway
