Why we picked the Capital Area Literacy Coalition

Last year we chose Reading is Fundamental as our read-a-thon beneficiary, and I'm happy that we did. They are a great organization. I remember  See more

THE STORY:

Last year Jefferson and I participated in Dewey's Read-a-thon, and the entire experience was fantastic. This year, sadly, I didn't plan far enough ahead of time and so I wasn't able to get off of work, but I didn't want to do a sad four hour read-a-thon in the evening, Jefferson and I both deserved better than that. So we're having our own read-a-thon, one week after Dewey's. All the books, all the snacks, all the literacy fundraising, maybe half the online posting, because the hourly updates last year got a bit ridiculous. So, here's how this works! On April 30th, Jefferson and I get up early and start reading books. Books and books and books and books. We keep you updated with what we're reading, how many books and how many pages we've read, and YOU support an motivate us by supporting our favorite literacy charity. This time we're supporting the Capital Area Literacy Coalition, who support children struggling with reading and writing skills in school, at-risk teens, and adults with limited literacy skills. You can support us with a gift in any amount, OR you can pledge to support us per book or by pages read. We can even give you an idea what to expect, in case you want to know how much you might be in for to plan your pledge: Last year I finished four books and Jefferson finished six. I read 683 pages, and Jefferson finished 1156. Per book or page pledges are fun because they are added incentive to push through the brain fry stage and avoid being sucked into an agar.io marathon, or to stay up a bit later and finish that book instead of going to bed. But really, if you are moved to donate and support us at all, we'll be touched.
