Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Happy February! Are you keeping up with your New Year's resolution to spend more time volunteering?

Reading to Kids is here every month to support your efforts to give back to our community. Our "Friendship & Family" reading clubs are next Saturday, February 13th. We still need 57 more volunteers, so sign up today, then invite your friends and family to read with you via our February 13th Facebook event!

CAN'T RUN 26 MILES?
THEN DONATE TO SUPPORT OUR MARATHON RUNNERS!

Team Reading to Kids 2016 Skechers Performance LA Marathon

Please support Team Reading to Kids as they run the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on February 14th (Valentine's Day)!

Over the next 11 days they need your help to raise $5,700 more towards their overall goal of $13,600. If you can donate a buck a mile to your favorite runner, you'll help fuel them towards the finish line!

With every mile they train and every dollar they raise, these valiant souls help you inspire kids with a love of reading.
