What is a Read-A-Thon?
- Students read daily (or are read to) and track their reading blocks online (20 minutes= 1 reading block) from Monday, September 7-Friday, September 18.
- Students collect pledges online from sponsors who commit to donating for each reading block that the student reads OR a sponsor can donate a set dollar amount. Having friends and family as sponsors will encourage students to reach their reading goals.
- After the read-a-thon ends, students contact their sponsors and let them know how much they’ve read, and sponsors then pay online.
- Students win fun prizes the more they read and the more donations they receive!
Quick tips to get started
- Help your child set a goal and sign up online at www.miradapto.org
- Help your child solicit donations from friends & family (form at the bottom of this page) We suggest sending an email with the website link, or make an old-fashioned phone call! Be sure to include your student’s teacher to make it easier for people to donate!
(Intel employees-don’t forget to submit to your employer for donation matching)
- Keep your kids motivated to read daily, and have fun! Send photos of your students reading to firstname.lastname@example.org Your student might be featured on our Facebook page!
