THANK YOU TO THE CAPITAL GROUP COMPANIES CHARITABLE FOUNDATION

Reading to Kids is the proud recipient of a $9,000 grant awarded by The Capital Group Companies Charitable Foundation. We especially appreciate their continued support of our program during these difficult economic times. This generous funding will allow us to continue to bring a love of reading into the lives of thousands of young students throughout Los Angeles.

We would also like to thank super-volunteer Dalet Brady, who championed this grant for Reading to Kids!

SWOOPOFF

SwoopOff, a local shopping service with unbeatable deals to the city's coolest places to eat, drink, and have fun, is partnering with local businesses to raise money for three non-profit organizations - and Reading to Kids is one of them!

To celebrate its launch on February 22, 2010, SwoopOff will donate more than half its first two weeks' revenue to local charities. Angelenos who sign up for SwoopOff's Free Deal Alerts during the promotion, vote for one of the three charities and SwoopOff will distribute proceeds with 30% of its revenue to the most popular, 15% to the second and 10% to the third.

Please support Reading to Kids while getting great deals by signing up with SwoopOff and voting for Reading to Kids. For more details, please visit the SwoopOff website.
