Weekly News Update!
November 1, 2004    

Happy Monday, Readers!

Well, the votes are in for at least one thing this November -- the Reading Clubs are filling up at an unprecedented rate! There's still room for these College Spirit Day Clubs on November 13th, but you'll want to sign up soon so you don't miss out on the fun! Sign up for the Thanksgiving fun by clicking here to RSVP.

We are in need of volunteers at NOBLE ELEMENTARY this month, as the Beyond the Bell kids (an estimated 200 of them!) will join our regular roster for reading and fun! If you've never been to Noble, come to this great school in the Valley -- there's plenty of room!



Internship Opportunities

Are you (or is anyone you know) a motivated, community-oriented college student with an interest in the non-profit sector? If so, please consider interning in our West L.A. office -- and click here to learn more about this great opportunity! We're interested in students of any major who can contribute about 4-8 hours per week in our office.



Annual Fund Drive Still Going Strong!

Wow! We asked and you responded! Within the last few days, donations of all sizes have been rolling in for the last weeks of the Annual Fund Drive -- but we still need your support! We've exceeded our ambitious financial goal, but we're still low on the number of donors this year. Our goal of 300 donors for the 2004 Drive is the most important indicator of our success.

Please join your fellow volunteers this year in supporting Reading to Kids through the next year. Your donation, whatever the size, matters!

Donating is easy. Simply make your check out to Reading to Kids and bring it to the November Reading Clubs or mail it to our office:

   Reading to Kids
   1600 Sawtelle Boulevard, Suite 210
   Los Angeles, CA 90025

If you prefer to donate by credit card, you may do so at http://readingtokids.org/Donations/index.html. Please note that we prefer checks because our credit card processing company deducts a 3% fee from your donations.

You can check on the progress of the Annual Fund Drive by clicking here to see our list of donors!

Thanks for your amazing support!

Best,
