CHARLOTTE, NC – Danmarie Grack, an independent educational consultant with Discovery Toys, came up with a unique fundraiser to engage children in giving back to the homeless children served by Birthday Blessings. Through her “2-4-6 Read-a-Thon,” she challenged youth participants to get six sponsors who will commit to donating $1 for each of the four books read over a two-week period.

“The kids got to read and have fun and learn from the books while helping homeless children get free books and toys so that they can enjoy reading and playing, too!” said Dawnmarie.

Dawnmarie’s “2-4-6 Read-a-Thon” netted $224.44 worth of toys and books, which is such a blessing to us! Thanks to Dawnmarie and all the youth who participated in this very heartwarming fundraiser.

If your child or your child’s school or club wants to participate in Dawnmarie’s next read-a-thon for Birthday Blessings, contact her here.
