ETHAN & FRIENDS
Hi, my name’s Ethan and I am getting some friends together to do a readathon.
If you do not know what a readathon is then I will explain that below…
WHAT IS IT?
A readathon is where my friends and I have to read as many books as we can and people can sponsor us.
You can donate by making a straight money donation, or you can sponsor money per book that we read.
That part is up to you!
Last year, I did a readathon in April, and I managed to raise over $1700, so now I am going to do it again, but this year I have a whole bunch of friends who are going to help out so that we can raise lots of money together.
On world refugee day last year, I went to the ASRC headquarters in Footscray and this year we are launching our new readathon on World Refugee Day.
I found out how there are a lot of famous people involved with ASRC as well.
ASRC stands for Asylum Seekers Recourse Centre, and it is a place for people who are migrating and don’t have any money or food – they can go to ASRC, and get looked after, with food, activities and more!
At ASRC, they have a free supermarket where the Asylum Seekers get to go and get the food they need.
So, now you know where the money that we are fundraising is going.
