3 things:
1. When does this end? As in, do we stop posting at the end of the crisis or within a set time limit?
2. Do you or I donate? (Whoops if I missed it being said) and if you donate, is there a way you can prove your donation? People I know mightn’t be so keen to sponsor if they can’t see the proof of donation (sorry if that’s unkind or anything)
3. What if no one really wants to sponsor me? Should I sponsor myself?

Thanks for organising this it’s a really cool idea.

Also sorry for the looong comment

Hi sekhmet! I think the end date will be the end of Feb (which I will add to the welcome post :). In terms of donation, I think I'll take Inky's advice and at the end, tell people how much they've individually raised and get them to donate it themselves, but ask them send a screenshot as proof of the donation. If you want to sponsor yourself, sure! I'll be sure to add you as a contributor!

Thanks!

Also, I made some changes to the welcome page if you want to check it out. In terms of sponsors, email insideadog@slv.vic.gov.au once you've figured out how much you want to give per book. Thank you for joining me in this! <3

This is a fantastic initiative! Just a reminder that we don't post our contact details on the site as it is public. Email Inky insideadog@slv.vic.gov.au and I will pass information on to guppy.
My suggestions: Give the readathon an end date
Go and get sponsors.
At the end of the readathon tally up what people owe you and get them to donate that amount straight to WIRES or Red Cross or CFA and send you a screen shot.
Then tally up how much you have made!
