Chloe came home from school today with a notice about “Reading Relay,” a school fundraiser to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. Kids read books and obtain pledges based on chapters read, pages read or minutes read, or one-time donations. Chloe thought it would be nice to participate because she just found out that a loved one has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
She went ahead and started soliciting donations from the family, and I am sure that she’s going to read a lot of books over the next 25 days in order to raise a bunch of money for cancer research. Anyone who knows Chloe knows how determined she is. Potential donors beware: she estimates that she’s going to read at least 1,200 pages. And I wager she’s going to read a lot more than that.
