Here is the pledge form to use for the Read-a-Thon. (You need to download and print it.)
Sample text for solicitation:
I am writing to ask for your support of my efforts to stand up for girls like me who want to learn, read and be themselves.
On November 3, 2012 I will be participating in Girls Read for Girls, a read-a-thon inspired by Malala, a 15 year-old Pakistani activist currently struggling to recover from wounds inflicted by those opposed to her fight for girls’ education and human rights.
My goal is to read __ pages. Your contribution of __ per page would make a big difference.
All proceeds will support Developments in Literacy (DIL), a 501(c)(3) organization that educates and empowers underprivileged students, especially girls, by operating student-centered model schools in remote areas of Pakistan.
If you would like to learn more about our read-a-thon or Malala, please see http://girlsreadforgirls.blogspot.com
Thank you so much for your contribution.
