Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Last call! We have until 3pm today to find 51 more volunteers to RSVP for tomorrow's in-person, on campus reading clubs!

Volunteers for our reading clubs must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and wear a mask while indoors on campus for the reading clubs. The kids will also be required to wear masks while indoors.

NOTE: Sign up only if you can join us on the school campus for which you RSVP. Click here for a map to our partner schools.

We also need help in any of the following roles, so please reply to this email if you can help:

- Check-in Helper at MacArthur Park, Politi, or White
- Training Coordinator at Los Angeles or Politi
- GLC at any school!

- Annual Fund Drive Speaker at Alta Loma or White (talking points will be provided)

Please join us and help recruit the volunteers we need by doing any or all of these five easy actions as soon as you can!

  1. If you haven't already, please visit our website now and sign up before 3pm today.

  2. Publish to your Facebook feed and share with your friends our November 12th Facebook Event to encourage them to volunteer!

  3. Whether or not you can volunteer tomorrow, Tweet @readingtokids, post, and message your friends and followers. Here's a sample post you can use:

    "My favorite volunteer organization, Reading to Kids, needs more volunteers for their reading clubs tomorrow. The theme is "Seasons & the Natural World", and every participant will wear masks while indoors. Join me at ### Elementary School for a fantastic morning of reading to elementary school kids near downtown LA. To join me, sign up online before 3pm today at www.readingtokids.org."

    If you write your own post, please be sure to include the following two things:

    - The reading clubs are tomorrow morning, November 12th, near downtown LA
    - Volunteers must sign up online by 3pm today at www.readingtokids.org

    If you have people in mind who you think would really like to read with us, tag them in your post. It will alert them to the reading clubs and show up in their friends' news feeds.

  4. Copy from our message template at http://www.readingtokids.org/News/SampleVolRecruit.pdf to encourage people you know to sign up to read with us!

  5. Print out this flyer at http://readingtokids.org/ProMaterials/VolunteerTearOffFlyer.pdf and post it somewhere others will see it. Make it a personal and fun social event by including the school at which you'll be reading or encouraging them to read at your favorite of our eight partner schools!
November is our college spirit month, when we count the college logos volunteers wear that morning to see which college shows the most spirit. Will you recruit the most volunteers from your school and win the competition?
