Thank you for supporting your child's fundraising efforts in the MS Readathon. One of the most valuable things you can do is help them manage their fundraising.

Tips for Managing Fundraising

  • Talk to your child about who they'll be asking to sponsor them. MS stresses the importance of NEVER asking strangers for money. 
  • Some people will prefer making a flat donation, and others will sponsor an amount for time spent reading, or the number of books read. Either is okay. 
  • If your child is not working online, and recording sponsors manually, make sure their records are up-to-date and have the names of all sponsors and the amount they have donated. 
  • Discuss with your child where any cash collected should be kept - make sure it's in a safe place. 
  • Keep encouraging your child. Every dollar they collect, every book they read, makes a difference.
