Today is the day! The Books for a Cause Read-a-Thon is here at last! I am so excited for this portion of the fundraiser benefitting Stand Up 2 Cancer to start. If you’re just getting caught up on what Books for a Cause is, you can read my initial post HERE and an update post HERE.
The Read-a-Thon starts today, June 29th, and goes until July 12th. Of course, you can join in at any time by signing up HERE. Once you sign up, I will then email you the pledge form. Here is an example of how the read-a-thon works…
I, Heather, pledge to read 6 books from June 29th to July 12th.
I will then ask friends, family, anyone willing to be a sponsor to donate (at least) $1 for each book I read. On the pledge form, whomever is donating will provide their name, email, and the amount they are contributing.
Their email will be used so that they can be sent the direct link to the Stand Up 2 Cancer fundraising page. I’ve organized it this way to ensure that all money pledged is sent to the proper location. I also want to be able to personally thank them for their donation.
I hope that makes sense! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at hsheffield2011 at gmail dot com
Of course, I’d love to hear your progress as well and the books you’re reading!
This project really does mean the world to me and I am so grateful for each one of you willing to help make it a success.
My goal is to raise 2K and I couldn’t do it without you. So far, $65 dollars has been raised and I am confident even more will be raised through the read-a-thon, as well as the upcoming auction.
Stay tuned for more auction information! So many fabulous authors have donated books & swag and I am excited to see what’s to come.
Let the read-a-thon begin!
