Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

We're tuning up for the "Music and Celebrations" Reading Clubs happening next Saturday, March 13th, where we'll be enjoying musical performances after a fun day of harmonious books and melodious crafts! To see who will be performing at each school, click here.

Thank you to everyone who signed up for the March Reading Clubs, which are currently full. If you would like to volunteer at the March Reading Clubs, please check back on our website for openings due to cancellations. If you have signed up for the March Reading Clubs but learn you will not be able to attend, please do cancel so that someone else may take your place.

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. This promotion ends tomorrow, March 5th!

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.
