In previous read-a-thons, some of the participants donated an amount of money of their choice to charity for every hour spent reading, every page read, or every book completed. This is by no means mandatory, but we thought we’d remind you that it is an option. Last April, participants managed to raise almost $1,500 for charity, and it would be fantastic if we all could match or surpass that amount this time!
Here is a list of suggested charities we posted last time. You are all, of course, more than free to donate to a charity not on the list. But if you haven’t made up your mind yet, take a look. Maybe you’ll find a cause dear to your heart there.
If you’re reading for a cause and care to share your choice, we’d love to hear about it!
