Hey R2K Supporters!

The Annual Fund Drive ends November 8, and we're still a long way from our goal of $12,000! More important than the dollar amount we raise in donations, though, is the NUMBER of donors we have.

If we can demonstrate to foundations the depth of our internal support, we can ensure their external support.

That's why we're hoping to reach the 200 mark for total donors for 2003 by the end of this fund drive. Even the smallest gifts make a big difference to Reading to Kids and the children we serve. We have a yearly budget of just under $100,000, and while most of the funds we raise are from foundations that give grants, we still rely on individuals to support the reading clubs. Click here to donate.

THANK YOU to those who have already sent in their contributions; new checks are arriving every day. Whether they're for $10 or $1000, we're so grateful for your support.

You can also visit our home page to monitor our progress: http://readingtokids.org. As of 10/16/03 we had 53 total donors in 2003 (147 to go to meet our goal!). You can click here to see a list of our 2003 Donors.

Thanks for your patience--only THREE MORE WEEKS!

Best wishes,
