I've raised 149.05%
of my fundraising goal and am now a
I'm almost 6 years old, and reading in three languages is my superpower!
I want to use my trilingual superpowers to raise money for MS research. It's my first ever Readathon and I am going to read at least 10 books out loud in each language (10 Greek, 10 Japanese and 10 English) ON MY OWN.
I have set a really high goal. Mum told me it might be difficult to reach $500 in donations, but I think I can make it!
**MY READING COMMITMENT**
If I reach $200 I promise I will add another two books for each language to my goal (that's 36 in total on my own, which is pretty good for a nearly-6year old).
If I can get $300 I will read another three each on top of that (that would be 45, wouldn't it? I can do that!).
Gosh, I don't even know what I'll do if we hit over $400. I'll have to think of something amazing. Maybe Mum can help me record my reading out loud and we can upload them to her socials. THAT would be something, wouldn't it?
I don't need a lot of convincing to read, but I really really want to raise money for this charity. Can you help me?
[UPDATE 11.30pm 9 June 2021: Wowee! After just one day, Lovely Humans have donated in Orion's name to the tune of 68% of his fundraising goal! With four books down in his first 24 hours, I think we'll have to get cracking on the remaining 41, and get onto uploading some reading clips for his supporters to thank them all for their generosity and kindness. Thank you all so much!]
