Kids who read at the read-a-thon gets sponsorships from family, friends and/or members of their community. These sponsorships are by the page or overall amounts of money. If you can't get sponsorships, don't worry! Just showing up is enough.
Before the 90 minute reading session, we have a special program with amazing speakers, performances and more! We sell t-shirts and books, too!
All of the money raised at the read-a-thon goes to the Malala Fund, which was founded by Malala to help build schools for girls in developing countries, like Pakistan, Kenya and Jordan.
Last year, we raised over 18,000 dollars with the help of over 100 kids. All of this money went to the Malala Fund.
