Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Our March reading clubs traditionally feature live musical performances, though understandably we can't provide live performances for our March 13th virtual reading clubs due to technical limitations.
We wanted to honor and thank again these eight fantastic and generous musicians who were ready and eager to perform last year at our March 14th, 2020 reading clubs that had to be canceled because of COVID-19:
For those of the above who have links to their music, please check them out and support them for their efforts!
The Potential Lunatics performing at Los Angeles Elementary on 3/12/16.
Let's all look forward to March 2022 when we hope to bring live music to the kids again! Until then, below is the latest about our March 2021 virtual reading clubs.
MARCH 13TH READING CLUBS
Our partner school teachers are starting to confirm as Zoom hosts for next month's virtual reading clubs on
Next week when we confirm enough
teacher hosts, we will then open
our RSVP system at www.readingtokids.org for those "Music & Entertainment" reading
OPERATIONS VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
For our virtual reading clubs we need experienced volunteers to
help train volunteers to use Zoom or be a second or third virtual Site Coordinator
in our Zoom reading clubs for any of our schools.
Being a Site Coordinator guarantees you a (non-reading) spot at our next reading clubs, so please e-mail us at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help us create wonderful reading clubs!
HELP US FIND GRANTS!
Did you know Reading to Kids receives about half of our funding from corporation and foundation grants? For example, over the last five years alone
six of our volunteers helped us receive $140,000 in grants from their employers!
Please check to see if your employer offers grants that Reading to Kids can apply to and let us know! You may help us buy thousands of books for kids!
PLEASE HELP US FIND
BINGO PRIZE & AUCTION ITEMS
We're starting to plan our next
Virtual Legendary Bingo on Zoom fundraiser for April or May, and we need your help gathering prizes for the bingo winners!
To help you get started, here is information about Reading to Kids to share with potential donors, as well as a donation form for them to complete.
We especially enjoy awarding gift certificates, gift bags, and
autographed items! Anything unique is great, too!
If you work at or have a connection with products or services to offer, please help us by asking for a donation to our events.
Thanks, and once enough teachers are confirmed next week we will open our RSVP system for our next reading
clubs (always the second Saturday of each month) on March 13th.
