Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Thanks to all of our terrific volunteers, supporters, and friends for giving so much to Reading to Kids this year!

2010 saw a lot of changes for us, and we are excited for the growth that is sure to happen in 2011. We wish you a wonderful new year filled with new opportunities, great people, and lots of reading to kids!

We are still working hard to reach our goal of 1,000 donors this year, and with your help, we can do it!  We still need about 200 more donors to reach this goal. 

To donate to Reading to Kids, please visit our website.

If you donate by check, please make sure the check is dated on or before December 31, 2010. If you would like to donate by credit card, the donation must be made on or before December 31, 2010.

Thanks, and now to encourage you to part with $10 to support Reading to Kids, please enjoy our following (almost annual) joke, but this time, with a twist for those of you who remember our previous versions...

Martha and her husband Bill went to the state fair every year and every year Martha would say, "Bill, I'd like to ride in that airplane."

Bill always replied, "I know Martha, but that airplane ride costs 10 dollars, and 10 dollars is 10 dollars."

One year Martha and Bill went to the fair and Martha said, "Bill, I'm 81 years old. If I don't ride that airplane I might never get another chance."

Bill replied, "Martha, that airplane ride costs 10 dollars, and 10 dollars is 10 dollars."

The pilot overheard them and said, "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take you both up for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say one word, I won't charge you; but if you say one word it's 10 dollars."

Martha and Bill agreed and up they went.

The pilot did all kinds of twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word was heard. He did all his tricks over again, but still not a word.

When they landed, the pilot turned to Martha and said, "By golly, I did everything I could think of to get you to yell out, but you didn't."

Martha replied, "Well, I was gonna say something when Bill fell out, but 10 dollars is 10 dollars."

Thank you for donating to Reading to Kids and Happy New Year!
