This is [Student First Name] [Student Last Name] and I’m participating in a Read-a-thon to help raise money for my school (PS 372, The Children’s School in Brooklyn NY) which I’m totally excited about.
Here is how it works. For the entire month of February, I read (or am read aloud to) as much as possible each day, and I keep track of the minutes that I read online in my school Read-a-thon account. Will you please sponsor my reading? You may either give a one-time donation OR an amount of money per minute that I read (or am read to). If you choose to sponsor me per minute, you can still fill out the form today and my school will send an invoice after February is complete and my reading has been tallied.
All of the money that you donate will go directly to P.S. 372 to support enrichment at my school. 10% of what we raise will go to our school libraries to buy new book titles. Thank you so much for considering supporting my reading efforts and my school!
