Supporting the MS Readathon

Being hopeless at sports of any kind had always meant that my participation in fundraising efforts had been dismal to non-existent. Walkathons, fun runs, bike rides had never appealed but I remember one charity event I was enthusiastic about and fairly successful at in school was the MS Readathon. Back then, even at $1 a book, I was able to get into fairly decent double, nearly triple, numbers when it came time to collect from my sponsors. Imagine my excitement when a friend from book club said that adults can also participate now!   

So, putting our hobby to good use, my book club has entered the 2012 MS Readathon to help make a difference in the lives of those affected by multiple sclerosis (MS), to raise funds for furthering awareness and services. There is one difference though; times and finances have moved on, so we've had to add a few more zeros to our target. Our fundraising goal is $1,300.00.

Check out our online fundraising web page and help us reach our fundraising goal. It's easy and will take no time at all. You can donate securely online using your credit card by clicking on the link below.

All information is secure and all donations will be sent electronically to MS Australia. A tax-deductible receipt will automatically be sent to your inbox once the donation is verified.

Support us also by following our progress on our Facebook page as we read 26 books altogether across July, August and September. We will be posting our thoughts, pseudo-tweets, and reviews along the way. We welcome your comments re what we are reading and any notes of encouragement would be great!
