These days things are very uncertain and having everyone’s schedules flipped upside down doesn’t help anyone feel settled. So to bring some light to families across the globe who have been forced to spend their day in their homes and to support a great cause, some celebrities have started reading children’s books on an Instagram page called Save With Stories.
Save With Stories is an organization that is working directly with Save the Children and No Kid Hungry to get food and supplies to children across the country who are currently out of school but rely on school lunches for food and other basic necessities.
Among the celebrities who have participated so far are Jennifer Garner, Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, Jimmy Fallon, Hoda Kotb, Ellen DeGeneres and Noah Centineo. Their participation requires them to record themselves reading a selection of children’s books through the channel.

When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
Mamas Uncut is THE online place for moms. We cover the latest about motherhood, parenting, and entertainment as well – all with a mom-focused twist. So if you're looking for parenting advice from real parents, we have plenty of it, all for moms from moms, and also experts.
