Dewey’s #ReadAThon: Charity Reading for the Library

Dewey 24 Hour ReadaThon

It is almost that time again! Oct 18th is the date for Dewey’s 24 ReadAThon Fall Edition and I am reading for charity again πŸ™‚

This time I am going to switch it up a bit since I am a bit on the broke side. I am going to be reading for charity donations and dollars! Plus I think this is the perfect opportunity to show that there are several ways to give back!

Here is my plan:

Charity: I am reading for my 3 local libraries (Frisco, The Colony, and Plano)

How I am going to do it:

  • 3 books donated for each book read (1 to each library)
  • 1 Audiobooks for each hour listened (1 to each library)
  • .10 cents for each comment (divided between the libraries)
  • I hope I get picked to do the mini-challenge again: .10 cents for every entry in my mini-challenge (divided between the libraries)
  • $6 for each hour missed ($2 for each library)
  • Comments on this post .10 cents

How you can get involved:

  • Read for charity yourself. I did a warm up post last time that can help you with that. (Let me know if you do because I will highlight you at every 4 hour check-in)
  • Comment during the ReadAThon
  • Sponsor me for an hour, 2 hours, whatever. You can give to the charity of your choice (or my libraries) but this way you aren’t in for the whole time and it gives me extra incentive.
  • Get the word out about reading for charity! Make it a mission!
  • Donate time to the ReadAThon. Be a cheerleader and make sure to visit the blogs reading for charity to give them energy

Can’t wait till October!

  1. I think I’m going to miss out this October. When I participate, I want to be able to give it every hour I’ve got and Gena Showalter is signing in Dallas that day, so who knows how long I will be down there. I will be stopping by to cheer everyone on though!

  2. Good luck! I’m not sure I could handle a 24-hour read-a-thon. Well, maybe I could if it was in an organized group setting LOL…but on my own, I don’t think I could do it. I hope you get lots of donations for your libraries!
