Last week we told you about the 24-hour Dewey’s Read-a-Thon coming up on Saturday, October 22 and asked you to be thinking about how you can participate. We are excited to have received a favorable response from so many of our Virtual Assistant friends. As promised, here is more information.
To sign up for the Read-a-Thon, click on this link and fill in the form at the bottom of the page. Then send an email to Jaclyn@croftvs.com to let her know you will be participating. After the Read-a-Thon is over, you will need to send her another email with the total number of minutes you personally read and how many mini-challenges you participated in during the 24 hour period. You might win one of the prizes! If you would like to be on a team with other Virtual Assistants, let Jaclyn know that, too, and how many hours you will be able to participate.
After you have signed up online, you will receive more information from the Read-a-Thon itself, and also information from us as we get closer to October 22.
Be sure to write a blog post in your own blog about the upcoming Read-a-Thon. You can get buttons from their site to add to your posts or to your website. Just attach a link to their website. Let’s get the information out there. If you have children, be sure their schools know about this and push the Read-a-Thon to their students.

You may be wondering how you can participate in addition to being one of the Readers. Or perhaps you don’t want to be a Reader at all, but you’d still like to give something toward the Read-a-Thon. There are few types of participants in the Read-a-Thon – Readers, Cheerleaders, Mini-Challenge Hosts, and Prize Donors. We will be giving you more information about each of these types of participants later in the week.
