Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

It's almost time for our "Halloween, Mysteries, and Magic" Reading Clubs!  They're the second most popular clubs of the year so be prepared for lots of kids.  Come dressed in your creepiest or kookiest or craziest or kitchiest costume (school-appropriate). There are a few spots left so click here now to ensure yours!

OUR ANNUAL FUND DRIVE
IS AT THE STARTING GATE!

It's revving up and ready to go!

In order to sustain and expand our program, we need your help! Donations from individuals like you will help to purchase hardcover books for elementary school libraries in low-income communities, fund book donations directly to children and parents to help them develop their own home libraries, and expand our program into new schools and communities.

Last year, we were extremely grateful for your contributions of over $41,000! This year, our goal is to raise at least $45,000 from 1,000 donors over the next two months.

Making a difference is just a click away!
