THE STORY:

Here we are on the evening leading up to our big READ-A-THON.  I'm going to kick my 15 hours off at 5-o-clock with Danielle Evans' "before you suffocate your own fool self" short story collection.  Might you consider donating a dollar or two for every hour I read?  That would top out at $15 or $30 total for a dynamic feminist hub in Atlanta.  Less is cool, more is welcome!!  #longliveCharis  #charisreads  

 

Greetings Friends and Family Worldwide! 

As  you may know, I am on the board of a bad-ass feminist non-profit, Charis Circle.  On November 29, I am taking part in our fundraiser by reading for 15 hours straight (okay, not too straight)... 15 hours continuously!!  See below for details.  

My goal is $500.  Please support the Circle and me by pledging $1, $10, $100, or more. . .

And follow our progress at #CharisReads if you are someone who likes to do stuff like that.  Thanks in advance for supporting this important community gem.

#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: YOU! Pick a Team Member to cheer on and donate to help them meet their goal or join the team and register to be a reader and collect pledges from friends, family, and your community.

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.

How: 

If you want to donate to a team member's campaign click on one of the campaigns and chose someone to donate to. (As little as $10 helps!)

If you want to participate in the Read-a-thon:

click "Fundraise for this Event" at the top right

click "Join the team"

Set a goal for yourself: If you want to raise $200 for Charis we suggest reaching out to at least 20 people and asking them to give you ten dollars (for a penny per page, you'll read 200 pages!).

Send your personal link to your friends and social media network to begin collecting pledges and raising money. Friends should donate the amount they are pledging for you to reach your goal!

Read and post updates of you meeting your goals and tag them #CharisReads so other folks can cheer you on!

We'll give awesome book lover prizes like Charis Books gift certificates to the young person (14 and under) and adult who each read the most pages. The more you read, and the more folks pledge, the more we all win!

If you need help setting up your page or setting goals, please email Charis Circle Board Member, Elise Blasingame: Elisenicole@gmail.com
