Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

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!

BIG DECEMBER 9TH READING CLUBS

Reading to Kids Annual Fund Drive

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 our 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.

2017 ANNUAL FUND DRIVE UPDATE!

Reading to Kids Annual Fund Drive

We extend a huge thank you to everyone who has already donated to our 2017 Annual Fund Drive! To date we have raised $17,638 donated from 251 donors!

All who have donated can see their names listed on our 2017 Annual Fund Drive page. If you have not yet donated, be sure to donate today so we can add your name there, too.

Our Annual Fund Drive lasts until December 31st, and our goal this year is to raise $55,000 from 550 donors. Please help us meet that goal by spreading the word to your friends and co-workers!

How Can You Help?

1) Make a pledge to donate by check or online. Contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated!

2) Show your support by asking friends and family to contribute! Look under the "Help us Fundraise!" header for our handy donor sheet for raising money with your friends and co-workers, a sample email you can easily personalize, and tips for fundraising.

Also, if your workplace matches donations to nonprofits, please share with them your donation, and ask them to consider matching it. In this way you double your donation and share with others your enthusiasm for Reading to Kids!
