Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

IT'S ON!
JOIN US TONIGHT FOR DRAG QUEEN BINGO!
SHARE OUR FLYER, TOO

Tonight we're playing Legendary Bingo at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood!

We need more bingo players, so whether or not you can go, please share our May 2nd Bingo event on Facebook by tagging and inviting your friends!

Please also click the image below for a flyer in .PDF format, and forward it to anyone you know who may be interested in going to our Legendary Bingo Night. You can also print out the flyer and post it wherever many people are likely to see it, perhaps with a note that you are going and inviting others to join you.

RSVP, RECRUIT, & HELP AT THE
MAY 12TH READING CLUBS

Our May 12th reading clubs are just over a week away and we still need 101 more volunteers!

Please sign up now to spend the day before Mother's Day reading aloud to children.

Please also help recruit by reaching out to your friends, family, and co-workers, such as joining and sharing our May 12th Facebook event to help us find our needed volunteers.

Veteran volunteers help out with logistics
We're looking for more of our experienced volunteers to help train new volunteers, be a GLC or Check-In Helper, or act as a Site Coordinator at any of our schools. This is a great way for you to become more involved!

Next weekend's clubs will be the last before the school semester ends and all of the wonderful children you read to over the past year move on up to the next grade. However, we will still have summer reading clubs on June 9, July 14, and August 11 to encourage the students to keep reading throughout summer vacation.

If you're signed up but can't join us, please click here to cancel so that someone else may take your place.

If you have volunteered with us before, please reply to info@readingtokids.org or call the office at (310) 479-7455 if you can be an Ambassador!
