Greetings to everyone on the Reading to Kids Taskforce!
Next week I have two specific things Talethe and I could really use your help with - so please read on for a great way to channel some of your energy to a great cause. We'd also love to see you again, too!
ZOOM TEACHER HOST RECRUITMENT MEETING
THIS MONDAY, APRIL 26TH AT 6PM
If you have volunteered at any of our Zoom reading clubs we started a year ago, then you know we rely on teachers and administrators at each of our partner schools to host our Zoom reading club sessions the second Saturday of each month.
One of our challenges is finding at least one teacher to host each grade at each school. To help us better address that challenge, please join us this Monday, April 26th at 6PM at this Zoom session:
Reading to Kids Zoom Meeting
Meeting ID: 310 479 7455
Generic Zoom link if the above link does not work for you
We'll discuss for only about an hour how we stand with teacher hosts at each school, and brainstorm ideas on how to encourage more teacher hosts.
Please reply to this email to let me know if you will join us at the above! :^)
VIRTUAL LEGENDARY BINGO
NEXT FRIDAY, APRIL 30TH AT 7:30 PM:
BUY YOUR TICKETS NOW & RECRUIT FRIENDS,
CO-WORKERS, & FAMILY TO PLAY!
It's back! Next week on Friday, April 30th, join Reading to Kids
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!
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!
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
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.
Ideally, 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
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
email@example.com if you can help us create wonderful reading clubs!
Thank you very much, and I really hope to see you again soon at any of the above!
