Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Over 250 volunteers are still needed for our November 10th College Spirit Day Reading Clubs! Click here to sign up.
Show your college spirit at the November reading clubs! Wear your school colors, show your pride, and celebrate higher education. The school represented by the most volunteers will win the 2007 Reading to Kids college face-off and earn bragging rights for the year. We will have a competition for the best local, statewide, and national representation. But most importantly, the kids will see the volunteers' school pride and the value of a college education.
We have volunteers signing up from colleges and universities all over the country! Right now it looks like we'll have a strong showing from UCLA and Stanford, but with a week to go it's anyone's game. Last year's local winner, USC, could pull another victory, but watch out for underdogs like LMU and the Claremont Colleges! No matter who wins, all volunteers will make an impact in students' lives. We hope you can join us!
ANNUAL FUND DRIVE - DONATE TODAY!
Thanks to your support, we have raised over $17,000 from nearly 200 donors. With just over a week to go in our 2007 Annual Fund Drive, we are 400 donors shy of our goal of 600 donors! The number of donors helps demonstrate wide community support of the organization, and helps us to solicit corporate and foundation grants.
