Raise money for Reading Buddies (and get cheap kids' stuff too)!

Fellow Boulder/Denver families...

Make money for your family and for the Reading Buddies of Lafayette Public Library by signing up to consign your used kids' clothes/toys/books/gear and maternity clothes at the upcoming Shop Kids Event consignment sale at the Lafayette Rec Center, March 26-28. If you say you're a friend of Reading Buddies when you sign up, the organizer will donate your consignment fee directly to us. And if you bring a copy of the Reading Buddies flyer when you shop, we'll receive 5% of your total purchase price. (Email me at babybilingual at gmail dot com and I'll send you the flyer.)

Also cool: the organizer will donate any unsold, un-picked-up books and art supplies to Reading Buddies!
Reading Buddies, by the way, is the award-winning reading enrichment program that I coordinate at the Lafayette Public Library. Last year 250+ students participated in one (or more) of eleven different semester-long sessions, including 100+ teen mentors who volunteered their time. Not bad considering that we're not part of the city budget and we have to depend on grants, fundraising, and donations to stay alive!
