Dear Friends and Family,
I am writing to ask you to sponsor me in a very special event. On Thursday, May 10th, at schools all across America, kids like me with learning differences will work together to break the Guinness world record for the longest reading relay in history. The book they are going to read is The Sword of Darrow, the book I wrote with my dad.
Think about it. More than 2000 kids who struggle to learn to read breaking the world reading record. How cool is that? And I am going to be the very first reader.
Will you make a donation to sponsor me in this great event? Half of the proceeds will go to The Lab School of Washington, the school that finally taught me to read and helped me become an honor roll student at St. John's College High School. The other half of your donation will go to the International Dyslexia Association.
Your help will give this event a great start. Your donation will also help other kids just like me who struggle to learn to read. . Here is the link to donate. http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/alexmalchow/extreme-reading-relay Thank you for any donation you can send.
