Books for Bullfrogs (Read-A-Thon)

Dear Parents,

We are excited to streamline our Books for Bullfrogs read-a-thon fundraiser by going online. For this fundraiser, we will be utilizing the site 99pledges.com to give students the ability to collect donations online (Note that donations can still be collected via cash and check). You will be able to reach out to friends and family by email, Facebook, and Twitter, instead of going door-to-door, tracking commitments, and handling checks. 

How It Works:

Make a pledge to encourage reading, and raise money for our school. Our Books for Bullfrogs read-a-thon will be based on a school-wide reading event. Students will have the opportunity to read at school but we encourage every student to read at home 30 minutes a day.

Two Ways to Make a Pledge: 

  1. FLAT DONATION - You can sponsor a student with a flat amount. .
  2. PLEDGE PER BOOK / AR Point- You can pledge an amount for books read or AR points earned depending on the student’s grade level. For example, TK-1st grade students will be reading 100 books during Read-A-Thon. If you sponsored a student for 25 cents, you would owe .25 x 100 books = $25. 

Your Student's Pledge Page:

You will receive an email with a link to your participant's pledge page. You do not need to login or change anything. Simply make a donation for whatever you can, and share your participant's link with friends and family. We are shooting for 100% participation so no amount is too small. 

If you do not receive the email for whatever reason, simply search and find your participant's online pledge page here: https://app.99pledges.com/fund/brookside2020.
