Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

With only a few days to go until our November 10th reading clubs we still need 87 volunteersClick here to join us for a morning of reading fun, and make sure to invite a friend!

COLLEGE SPIRIT DAY 

Don't forget to 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.

ANNUAL FUND DRIVE - DONATE TODAY!

Thanks to your support, we have raised nearly $20,000 from over 200 donors!  With only a few days to go in our Annual Fund Drive, we are still shy of our goal of 600 donors.  The number of donors helps demonstrate wide community support for the organization, and helps us to solicit corporate and foundation grants.

Your donation of any amount has a huge impact on the lives of the students we work with.

To join your fellow volunteers in donating to Reading to Kids, click here.  Please remember that no donation is too small to make a difference, so please give what you can!

You can also be a hero by asking your friends, family and coworkers to join in our mission by making a contribution to Reading to Kids.  Supporters who collect 10 donations of any size will be recognized on our website as a Reading to Kids Superhero!  Click here for additional resources including our Reading to Kids Superhero form, fundraising tips, FAQs, a sample e-mail, and more.
