Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Our "Friendship &
Family" reading clubs on February 14th are proving to be popular, so be sure to
sign up today! You can also join
14th Facebook event and share with friends a lovely way to spend Valentine's Day morning.
In the meantime, fellow birders and those of you who volunteer at Esperanza may enjoy Principal Brad Rumble's article about the birding community in LA.
We are looking for musicians to perform at each of our seven partner schools at our March 14th reading clubs. In the past we've had everything from Korean drum troupes to electric violin players to marching bands!
If you or someone you know is interested in sharing the gift of music with
our students and volunteers, email us at
KNOW SOMEONE FAMOUS? COMEDIANS AND CELEBRITIES WANTED
We need a well-known comedian to headline this spring's Benefit Comedy Night! If you
personally know a
comedian who would be interested and available for this event
(which will likely take place in late April or May), please email us at inforeadingtokids.org.
We'd also like to have a celebrity
host for either our Comedy Night or as a bingo caller
for our annual Legendary Bingo Night in May or June. Please
reply if you can personally reach out to any celebrities who would like to help
your favorite cause!
THANK YOU AGAIN,
ELLA FITZGERALD CHARITABLE FOUNDATION
The Reading to Kids office is once again filled with boxes of new books. Why? Because the
Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation has once again
donated 1,020 books for us to give away at our reading clubs!
When you help us give them away to the kids, you'll know which books these are because of this special sticker inside:
Please help us thank the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation by visiting the
foundation's page and the official
Ella Fitzgerald Facebook fan page. Both are full of delightful reminders of Ella's talent and impact!
Thanks for reading, and we hope you can join us at our February 14th reading clubs!
