Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

We are in the final five days of the 2018 Annual Fund Drive and just $7,000 short of our goal!

Reading to Kids Annual Fund Drive

So far 578 donors have given $48,015, so we need YOUR help to reach our $55,000 goal by midnight this Monday, December 31st. Here is what you can do:

1 - Donate online or make a pledge to donate by check today by visiting our 2018 Annual Fund Drive page. Contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated!

2) Show your support by asking friends and family to contribute! Visit our 2018 Annual Fund Drive page and look under the "Help us Fundraise!" header for resources, including information on creating your own personalized fundraising page on Facebook, our handy donor sheet for raising money with your friends and co-workers, tips for fundraising, and so much more.

3. Double your donation! 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!

Once they know about Reading to Kids, many will want to donate - we just need you to ask!

Note: If donating by check, please make sure the check is dated on or before December 31, 2018. If donating by credit card, the donation must be made on or before December 31, 2018.

Are you crafty? On Sun. Jan. 6, join the Curriculum Committee at 12:30pm in the Reading to Kids offices to help create the activity and craft guides for the January books! Our address is 1600 Sawtelle Blvd, Suite 210, Los Angeles, CA 90025.

At the January 12th reading clubs we are eager to give away a computer or tablets to one lucky kid at each school.

If you or your employer have any working computers that are less than 6 years old running Windows 7 or later, or any Macintosh computers less than 7 years old, or any iPads or similar tablets, we can give them to deserving kids!

We especially need working computers (CPUs), whether or not they come with monitors, keyboards, etc. Please email us at info@readingtokids.org for details.



Do you know any runners? Are you a runner? We are looking for three more runners to join Team Reading to Kids in the 2019 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday, March 24th!
