Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

We're eager for this Saturday's "People & Places Around the World" reading clubs, and we may have an open spot for you!

Kids and volunteers at the reading clubs

All of our reader spots were full when we sent this message, but please keep checking back today and tomorrow before 3pm for new spots in case someone has to cancel.

(If you have signed up and can't make it after all, please cancel your RSVP online immediately to make room for another volunteer.)

READING TO KIDS AMBASSADORS
WANTED TOMORROW!

Sample flyers

Tomorrow for an hour or two between 7:30am and 2:30pm, we need your help conducting quick classroom walk-throughs to encourage kids to come to our February 10th reading clubs.

We are especially looking for volunteers who can pass out flyers to parents when school lets out at around 2:15pm next Friday, Feb. 9th.

This can be a lot of fun and we'll provide everything you need. Please reply to info@readingtokids.org or call the office at (310) 479-7455 if you can be an Ambassador for an hour or two next week!

MUSICIANS/PERFORMERS
NEEDED MARCH 9TH

Our March 9th reading clubs feature "Music & Entertainment", and we are looking for two more musicians, dancers, etc. to perform at each of our eight partner schools. In the past we've had everything from Korean drum troupes to electric violin players to mariachis to marching bands!
