Reading to Kids' Legendary Bingo fundraiser

It's nearly here! Next week on Friday, April 30th, join Reading to Kids for Virtual Legendary Bingo on Zoom!

Click their link above to see a video on their website of how it works. Just like our past bingo events at Hamburger Mary's, virtual drag queen bingo is "R" rated and seats are limited! Don't miss out on outrageous fun!

Tickets to play four games of virtual bingo are just $25, with only 60 tickets available - so click this link to buy your ticket today!

Buy Your Virtual Legendary Bingo Tickets!

We'll also have auction items to bid on, and all proceeds benefit Reading to Kids. To help recruit players, please also visit our April 30th Bingo event on Facebook and invite your friends!

HELP FIND MORE BINGO PRIZES!

You can also help us gather more prizes for the bingo winners! Since this is virtual bingo we are looking for items we can mail or send via email, such as $25 or $50 gift cards.

We also enjoy awarding gift certificates, gift bags, and autographed items! Anything unique is great, too!

To help you get started, here is information about Reading to Kids you can share with potential donors (such as where you work or shop), as well as a donation form for them to download and fill out.


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.

MAY 8TH READING CLUBS
NEARLY CONFIRMED

We are eager for next month's virtual reading clubs on May 8th, but first need to recruit enough teachers to be Zoom hosts for them. We'll remain Zoom-only for the foreseeable future.

Next week when we confirm enough teacher hosts, we will then open our RSVP system for those "Fantasy, Folklore, & Fairytales" reading clubs!

OPERATIONS VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Volunteers checking in with their Site Coordinators on Zoom

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 info@readingtokids.org if you can help us create wonderful reading clubs!

HELP US FIND GRANTS!

Jessica Brown-Clark with Target grant check

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!

Thanks, and we hope to see you at our Virtual Legendary Bingo!
