2008 ANNUAL FUND DRIVE
"BE PART OF OUR STORY"
Reading to Kids kicked off our 2008 Annual Fund Drive at the September Reading Clubs! From now until November 8th, you will have the opportunity to help inspire underserved children with a love of reading by making your own donation to Reading to Kids.
By making a donation, and by asking friends and family members to make a donation, you will help Reading to Kids remain a vital presence in these kids' lives. This year, our goal is to raise $40,000 from 600 donors.
