THANK YOU, AHMANSON FOUNDATION!
We are very excited to thank the
Ahmanson Foundation for their recent
$10,000 grant - their eighth $10,000 grant they have awarded to us since 2004! Working together we are able to share your joy of reading with thousands of children every year!
It's back! Crossword puzzle lovers from everywhere will be converging at the
Crosswords LA tournament on
Sunday, October 21st – with proceeds benefiting
Reading to Kids!
This year's tournament will again be held on the University of Southern California campus (specific location details forthcoming), and
Crosswords LA needs our volunteers to help!
They need a dozen volunteers to set up portions of the event, greet and sign in contestants, and collect puzzle papers. It's a lot of fun volunteering with them!
This tournament raises money for Reading to Kids, so
if you can volunteer with them for either the full day or a half day, please reply to this email today. Full day volunteers (8:30am – 4:45pm) get a
free lunch! Help show our appreciation by supporting their efforts for us!
Please help recruit another 276 volunteers! We hope for 1,200 kids on October 13th eager to see the magicians we'll have performing
If you haven't already, please join
October 13th Facebook Event. It really helps us when you do because your friends can see you're attending the reading clubs. Help us spread the word by inviting them to join!
After you join, don't forget to go to our website and
sign up with us.
It would also be a huge help if you
printed out this flyer and posted it
at your work or favorite community bulletin board. Please also use our convenient email template (in PDF) to recruit volunteers!
We are still looking for one more
magician to perform at one of our eight schools. We also encourage all volunteers to dress up in school-appropriate Halloween costumes!
