Rewarding for Students
Students can read what they're interested in anytime, anywhere. And in the Read-A-Thon rewards store, kids rule! Readers can earn prizes on the donations they raise and pick what they want from a range of awesome toys, games, and books.

This was our first time doing a Read-A-Thon and we LOVED it!

Everything was very easy to navigate. We heard from several students and parents about how much they have enjoyed this fundraiser. Our favorite part was that we could encourage a love of reading while raising money for the school.

Thank you for making this the easiest and most successful fundraiser we've had!
