BE A READING TO KIDS AMBASSADOR
With the 2018-19 school year beginning August 14th, we will have
many opportunities for you to help us promote Reading to Kids at our partner schools as a Reading to Kids Ambassador.
There are three different ways you can help:
Kindergarten Orientations, Teacher Breakfast Deliveries, and
We'll supply everything you need, including what to say at the Kindergarten Orientations. Although it's great if you can speak Spanish (even a little), all of our parent materials are bilingual, and there's always someone who can translate for you at the school.
These events set the course for the rest of the year and are
a wonderful way to interact with the
kids, parents, and teachers.
If you are interested in being an Ambassador, please e-mail us at
email@example.com or call (310) 479-7455.
THREE MORE COMPUTERS OR TABLETS WANTED TO GIVE TO KIDS!
At our August 11th reading clubs we would love to give away a

If you or your employer have any working computers
that are less than 6 years old running Windows 7 or
later, or any Macintosh computers less than 7 years
old, or any iPads or similar tablets, we can give them
to deserving kids!
We especially need working computers (CPUs),
whether or not they come with monitors, keyboards,
Please email us at
