It seems like every fundraising effort these days involves either running, staying sober or growing a moustache. That counts me out. You know what I am good at though? Reading. So I thought I'd start a readathon for grown-ups. Funds go towards the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, because you know it makes sense. Just click the 'Join Team' button and follow the steps, then start signing up sponsors.
None really. The 'Just Read' readathon runs from 1 June to 31 July 2015. Ask people to sponsor you per book, per page or for an overall amount. You could set yourself a reading challenge - books by Indigenous authors, books by women, books published this year, books published in 1827, books about WW1, books featuring snakes - or just read whatever you like. I don't mind how long the books are, but feel free to set your own rules to reassure your sponsors if you like.
