Spread the Word About Reading to Kids!
Reading to Kids relies on hundreds of volunteers each month to make our Reading Clubs so much fun. Many of these volunteers participate in our events because they hear about the Reading Clubs from their alumni groups, clubs, or company newsletters. While Reading to Kids has relationships with many local volunteer groups, we know that you, our volunteers, have connections to thousands of other agencies and companies. We would love to have your help in inviting these groups to join us at the Reading Clubs.
If you have a connection with a business, alumni association, or other organization whose members might enjoy participating with Reading to Kids, please help us to spread the word! If you can think of any groups that might be interested, please contact the Co-Chair of our Volunteer Relations Committee, Helga Hung HelgaHung@readingtokids.org, and she will contact you to discuss.
Last But Not Least - Our Friends at Hollywood Momentum!
Many of our volunteers work in the entertainment industry and a good number of these folks work at studios or agencies as assistants. One R2K volunteer, Lisa McDivitt, used the ups and downs of her experience in Hollywood as fuel for a newly launched online magazine, Hollywood Momentum.
Lisa is one of many people who have been kind enough to put a link to Reading to Kids on her website. If you have a link to Reading to Kids on your website, let us know: we'll try to mention you in one of our upcoming Updates.
