DMD Gives Back to Help Build Youth Leaders and Readers with the Non-profit Give More HUGS (Helping Unite Giving Souls)

All of us Dads Married to Doctors want our children to learn to read and develop a love for reading throughout their life. Reading is fundamental. Reading builds knowledge and power. However, 1 in 300 children in a low-income neighborhood has access to books at home. It’s astonishing. One of our very own DMDs, Chris McGilvery, founded Give More HUGS, a nonprofit organization that we have supported over the years. From a book drive in Vegas to supporting schools after Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston and surrounding cities. “The nonprofit operating model is awesome! Not only are they committed to children reading, but they are mentoring students to develop leadership skills that are much needed”, explained Dads Married to Doctors Founder, Curtis Webster.

The nonprofit operates with a “Students for Students” model aimed at helping ALL students learn how to read and succeed in school. They train student leaders to host book drives and school supply drives to equip underserved kids with the tools they need to get a quality education. There is literally nothing more important in a democracy than having educated citizens — and Give More HUGS trains students to be social leaders to boot!
