 2006 ANNUAL FUND DRIVE UPDATE

The 2006 Annual Fund Drive, which was kicked off at the September 9th reading clubs, is almost at the half-way point!

THANK YOU to those who have already sent in contributions!  Donations are arriving every day, and whether they are for $10 or $1,000, these donations play a crucial role in helping us work toward inspiring underserved children with a love of reading.

In 2006, we have received over $15,000 in donations from individuals and have a total of 278 donors.  However, we are still a long way from our goal of $30,000 and 500 donors.

Your donation, whatever the size, MATTERS! A gift of $10 can provide half a dozen children with their own softcover book to add to their home libraries. In addition, your donation increases the size of our individual donor pool, which is favorably viewed by potential funding organizations as an indication of broad community support.

Help us make this year's Annual Fund Drive a success!  Please let your friends and family know how they can make a huge difference in the community, and please consider making your own donation to Reading to Kids.

Donating is easy. Simply make your check out to Reading to Kids and 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 our credit card processing company deducts a 3% fee from online donations.)
