Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Last Saturday, 429 kids, 235 volunteers, 50 parents, and 31 teachers & staff explored "Mysteries & Adventure" at our January 9th reading clubs!

The schools were still on their Winter Recess last week, so that was a lot of kids willing to brave the cold for a great story! In addition to receiving a free book, one lucky student at each of our seven schools also went home with a refurbished computer!

START RECRUITING FOR FEBRUARY 13TH!

Sign up for the next reading clubs! Click here to submit your RSVP for our "Friendship & Family" reading clubs on February 13th.

Please take a moment to also join our February 13th Facebook Event and share your love of reading with all your friends.

DONATE TO SUPPORT OUR MARATHON RUNNERS

Please support Team Reading to Kids as they run the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on February 14th (Valentine's Day)!

With every mile they train and every dollar they raise, our team-members help you inspire kids with a love of reading.

They need your help to raise $9,500 more towards their overall goal of $13,600. If you can donate a buck a mile to your favorite runner, you'll help fuel them towards the finish line!
