Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

It's the final 60 hours of the year and our Annual Fund Drive! Yesterday our supporters were challenged on Twitter to donate $1,000 by tomorrow morning for a $1,000 match from EntertainmentCareers.net!

EntertainmentCareers.net $1,000 Twitter Challenge

Please help us meet the challenge by making your donation today at our Annual Fund Drive page!

Here's how you can help us earn that match by tomorrow morning or before the end of 2016:

1) Donate by check or online today. Contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated!

2) Ask friends and family to contribute! We've made it super simple - just print out our donor sheet and start asking, or spend a few minutes personalizing and sending our sample email.

3) Ask your employer if they make matching donations or want to donate to a great cause! We have so far received (or are expecting) matching donations from The Capital Group Companies Charitable Foundation, Disney, Oaktree Capital Management, McMaster-Carr, Microsoft, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Courthouse News Service, Expedia, Automatic Data Processing, Inc., Warner Brothers Entertainment, Inc., and SAP Software Solutions, all through the efforts and requests of our volunteers who work for those companies.

Once your employer, friends, and family know about Reading to Kids, many will probably want to donate to us, and are looking for a great cause to support before the end of the year - we just need you to ask!

Note: If donating by check, please make sure the check is dated on or before December 31, 2016. If donating by credit card, the donation must be made on or before December 31, 2016.

We urgently need six more runners to join us in one of the best marathons in the country. You can share this Facebook group with any of your runner friends to encourage them to join our team!

Runners can run either the full marathon or a half-marathon, and the dollars raised will go to support our monthly reading clubs. 

If you or a runner you know is interested in becoming one of our fundraising runners or creating a fundraising team, please email Chris Martin at marathon@readingtokids.org!
