Thanks for supporting Charis! My goal is to raise $500 dollars by committing to read 500 pages at $1 per page. You can support me by donating any amount from $1-$500 to help me meet my goal.
#CharisReads! A 24-Hour Read-a-thon to benefit Charis Circle, the non-profit programming arm of Charis Books!
12:01am Sunday, November 29th--11:59pm Sunday, November 29th!
What: A Fundraising Read-a-thon for Charis Circle. Indulge your inner book-worm by reading whatever you like during the 24-hour period, take pledges, keep track, win prizes, help Charis.
Who: Register to be a reader and collect pledges from friends, family, and your community based on the number of pages you read (we suggest asking for $.25 or $.50 per page, or perhaps $10 per 1/2 hour you read within the 24 hour period of Sunday, November 29th.
Where: Anywhere you like to read: in the bath, in your bed, listening to an audio book in your car or while walking your dog, in a group, aloud, silently, with your kids, with your friends, its your choice!
Why: Because raising money for Charis Circle by doing what we all do best is a whole lot more fun than doing a walk-a-thon, marathon, bake-a-thon (though we like all those things too).
When: We will begin at midnight on Sunday, November 29th and you tally all of your reading for the next 24-hours.
