Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

It was a holly jolly reading club month with 1,217 kids, 437 volunteers, 252 parents, and 34 teachers & staff, making our December 11th reading clubs a festive success!

A special thanks to Operation Santa for their donation of the Santa suits, and to all of the Santas and elves that made this month's reading clubs extra special!

Please be sure to sign up for the next reading clubs!   Click here to submit your RSVP for our "New People, New Places, New Things" Reading Clubs on January 8th.

BIG CHEER FOR UCLA

We're thrilled to announce that The Mortar Board National College Senior Honor Society at UCLA raised over $1,500 in the Mortar Board Virtual Book Drive! This comes as credit with First Book for Reading to Kids to purchase prize books. We give thousands of new books to our kids every year making this donation particularly special.

HOLIDAY GIVING

Although the Annual Fund Drive has ended, you can still donate!

What better gift to give than the joy and wonder of reading? In honor of a friend, family member, or co-worker this holiday season, please consider us for your charitable contribution. Click here to support Reading to Kids.

There's another great way to help! Facebook Causes has made it easy to rally the people you care about to support the causes you care about. It takes just a few moments to set up your own Holiday Wish for Reading to Kids that you can easily share with your friends, family, and co-workers.

Thanks, and see you January 8th!
