We wish for you a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow! We are so very thankful for the thousands of volunteers, teachers, administrators, principals, donors, and funders who have helped us inspire a love of reading in the children we serve since 1999!
December is one of our biggest months, and the
December 9th reading clubs are only two and a half weeks away!
We still need 298 more volunteers, so please start
recruiting as many, friends, co-workers, etc. as you can.
You can help by joining
December 9th reading club event
so your friends will see that on your wall.
Then go to our website and
sign up with us.
Please tweet, post to Facebook, and email your friends, letting them know that we still need more volunteers.
You can also help us by
printing out this flyer and posting it at your
work, school, church, synagogue, mosque, or favorite
community bulletin board. Please also use this
easy email template.
