Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
We are getting really excited for the
September 12th reading clubs. We're expecting at least 1,200 kids,
so we need hundreds more volunteers.
Please help us recruit 298 more volunteers by joining our
September 12th Facebook event so your friends
will see that you will be attending.
Tweet @readingtokids, post to Facebook, and email your
friends, letting them know that we still need more
Make sure to tell your friends and family:
1) The reading clubs are the morning of September 12th near Downtown LA
2) Volunteers must sign up online at
3) The school at which you will be reading
You can also help us by
printing out this flyer and posting
it at coffee shops, the gym, your office, or favorite
community bulletin board.
