The summer months are known for relaxation and recharging the mind. This applies to adults and children. With the COVID19 pandemic is now becoming a thing of the past, and children still catching up on the year of lost education, the summer of 2022 can be a great time to help them recharge their minds with books.

Books can help a student to expand their knowledge without directly teaching them anything. Help them to think outside the box through stories of adventure and fun. Help them to learn that Leasure Reading is a great way to reduce stress and anxiety. The summer of 2022 can also be a great way for the schools and libraries to raise funds for special projects.

For each school that sets a dollar goal to raise during the Read-A-Thon and matches it, DEAR Indie will add a five (5%) percent bonus to their earnings. This applies to any size school or dollar amount that is set. Along with other bonuses and prizes awarded to readers.

We will be glad to assist you in creating fun posters and fliers that you can use to send home with your readers for their parents to access the sign-up portal and register their kids. Now is the time to begin creating your Read-A-Thon to get as many readers signed up. Remember, readers can be of any age, so encourage the parents to read and sign-up sponsors too!
