Charlotte Lombardo

Participating in my 1st MS Read-a-Thon

I've raised 167.38%

of my fundraising goal and am now a

Shooting star

First-time fundraiser, long-time reader!

Hello, I'm Charlotte and I'm five! My mum calls me Charlotty Star because that's the name of a racehorse, and I hope that's exactly what I'll be (a star, not a racehorse) when I'm finished the MS Readathon.

My brother Julien has done the Readathon twice. His fundraising efforts have been pretty amazing, so it would be pretty amazing too if I reached my target. In our family, the Readathon is pretty special to us because my Aunty Sonya has Motor Neurone Disease. She's in a wheelchair, and I ask my mum lots of questions about that.

I hope that my fundraising will help people like Aunty Sonya to a better life, so that they might be able to work and walk and live with their symptoms better. But also, I know that my fundraising is just a really fun way to read. I absolutely love my books and reading stories, so if you can help me to fundraise this winter during the Readathon, I'd be super grateful! Thank you everyone for all your support!!
