Read-a-thons are fundraising events that benefit local students while they earn money to support students in developing countries where Room to Read works. Students do extra-curriculum reading to reach a specified goal (number of pages or number of hours). In Title I schools this then translates into a dollar amount that has been pledged by a local individual or business; for other schools we offer matching funds for the amount students raise up to $2,500. Students can choose to donate the money to any of the countries Room to Read serves, and can specify how the money will be used, such as for books, girls' education, or buildings. By participating in a Read-a-thon, students read more than they otherwise would have, learn about other cultures, and have a sense of giving to less fortunate students.
We want to thank the schools who have participated in a DFW chapter Read-a-thon. If your school is interested, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
