Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Toes will be tapping and fingers will be snapping at our "Music & Celebrations" reading clubs on March 14th. We still need 125 volunteers, so sign up today.

You can also join our March 14th Facebook event, and invite your friends to the celebration, too.

As we do every March, we will have some very talented musicians performing. Click here to find out who will be performing at your school - you may even know them personally!

DONATE TO SUPPORT OUR MARATHON RUNNERS

Support Team Reading to Kids as they run the ASICS LA Marathon on March 15th!

With every mile they conquer and every dollar they raise, our team-members are helping to inspire kids with a love of reading.

They have already raised more than $8,500 towards their overall goal of $13,000. If you can donate a buck a mile to your favorite runner, you'll help fuel them towards the finish line!
