HOW DOES IT WORK?
- Upon signing up for a “Birthday Read-A-Thon”, the family of the birthday child will receive a digital starter kit via email shortly afterwards, which has forms and contracts to complete, sign, scan and send back to Mind Growth Education via email.
- When all of the pertinent information is received from the organizer, Mind Growth Education will send the organizer the link to their customized Charitable Impact Birthday Fundraising Campaign page and the login information for the birthday child’s Mind Growth Education account prior to his/her “Birthday Read-A-Thon” event date.
- During the first 24 hours: The birthday child and his/her family members will gather sponsors using their online “Charitable Impact Birthday Fundraising Campaign page” to raise funds for their preferred cause.
- After the first 24 hours: The birthday child will receive via email how many minutes he/she is to read for the duration of it’s “Birthday Read-A-Thon” event after the fundraising part of the event is over. The “Read-A-Thon” part of the event does not need to be the following day. It can start whenever your family has the time and is ready to read!
- During the following few weeks: The birthday child begins reading and logs in his/her minutes in their Mind Growth Education’s reading log program account until they’ve reached their goal! HOW FAR WILL YOUR FUNDRAISING AMOUNT GET YOU ON YOUR READING JOURNEY!
- All donations are sent from the Charitable Impact Foundation to your chosen cause after the first 24 hours fundraising deadline in the birthday boy’s or birthday girl’s honour.
