Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

In just two days we will be exploring the "Wonders of Science & Technology" at our reading clubs! If you are not signed up with us already, sign up today, then join our November 14th Facebook Event.

If you signed up but cannot join us after all, be sure to cancel online to open your spot for someone else. The deadline for canceling is 3pm tomorrow.

November is also our College Spirit month, so be sure to wear your college's logo. The competition is on to see which college has the most volunteers representing their alma mater at this Saturday's reading clubs!

Thanks to the generosity of our volunteers and several colleges, every child at the reading clubs this Saturday will receive an item with a college logo - part of our efforts to nurture early college interest.

8 MORE MARATHON RUNNERS NEEDED

Do you know any runners? Please forward this email to them and ask them to join Team Reading to Kids in the 2016 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon!

We urgently need eight more runners to join us in one of the best marathons in the country on Sunday, February 14th (Valentine's Day). You can share this Facebook page with any of your runner friends to encourage them to join our team!

Runners can run either the full marathon or a half-marathon, and the dollars raised will go to support our monthly reading clubs.

How Can You Help?

1) Make a pledge to donate by check or online. Contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated!

2) Show your support by asking friends and family to contribute! Look under the "Help us Fundraise!" header for our handy donor sheet for raising money with your friends and co-workers, a sample email you can easily personalize, and tips for fundraising.

Also, if your workplace matches donations to nonprofits, please share with them your donation, and ask them to consider matching it. In this way you double your donation and share with others your enthusiasm for Reading to Kids!
