So, head on over and sign up to play along! It looks like lots of fun.
The challenge is going to benefit Reading is Fundamental, a great organization that gives books to low-income children. In order for RiF to benefit, some of the readers are asking for sponsorship.
This is where you come in, because I would like some sponsors. You can promise me a lump sum (as in, if you do this, I'll give you $20) or you can pledge to give based on how I do, so you'll give me $1 for every hour I read (probably 15-20-- I have to work on the 28th) or for every book I read, or for every page I read... if you want to wait until after the 48 Hour Challenge to see how much I read because you commit, go on ahead. After the challenge, you can donate directly on the RiF's webpage or send the money to me and I'll donate it for you.
I will, myself, will donate 3 cents for every hour I read, for every book I read, and for every page I read. (Based on last year's 48 hour showing, that's going to be $50-$75) I've also donated 10 Bookmooch points to be used a prizes for readers.
Anyway, if you're willing to sponsor me (and every little bit helps! There is no amount too small) please leave a comment below or email me at kidsilkhaze at yahoo dot com.
Thank you so much.
