Nothing can match the wonder and excitement of a child's birth. It marks a new chapter in the life of your family.
The birth of a child is a time of anticipation—but also reflection—as you consider the responsibilities brought on by this thrilling event. Your child's story begins at birth, and his or her legacy is built each time a milestone is achieved. Regardless of age, every child has valuable experiences that are proudly shared with family and friends. We enable your family to record these moments so they are not forgotten--creating an electronic diary to share with your child as he or she gets older. Of equal importance, what will you do to begin investing in his or her education?
This is how our nonprofit foundation's Americans All program can help. Individuals and families can join Americans All for free and can create and edit a legacy story. The story will be shares and preserved forever on our Web-based Heritage Honor Roll and on the home pages of our Legacy Partners. This story:
- Can contain up to 2,000 words, of which 1,000 can be password protected.
- Can be published in multiple languages and be updated at no cost.
- Can be enhanced with photographs, home movies and audio recordings.
- Can include links to other Heritage Honor Roll legacy stories, social media sites and other Web pages.
- Can be shortened to print on an 8½” x 11” template to share with family and friends.
Although we are no longer active in curriculum areas (focusing instead on providing students that are involved in non-academic school activities, like school clubs and teams, with valuable resources), member families can also access our existing K–12 social studies information—a $500+ value. In addition, families receive a free, one-year Social Legacy Network trial subscription and gain access to our new resource databases, texts, photos, songs and teaching tools, as well as discounts on goods and services from our program partners.
Americans All members can also continue their Social Legacy Network subscription for a small monthly cost ($4) after the free trial to continue to receive partner discounts and additional benefits. Americans All gifts 80 percent of all member subscription and business fees to organizations that support our program.
