After reading yesterday that Save the Children have launched their first ever campaign to help UK families in poverty, Harry and I had a chat about what we could do to raise some money. I suggested a sponsored… something and though he was planning to break his own trampoline jumping record, we finally decided on a sponsored read.
One of the few items on our unschooling manifesto (I will get back to unschooling in another post, honest) was for Harry to read to Joe every day. I want Harry to get into the habit of reading every day and Joe likes a book at bedtime (of course), so why not combine the two?
So Harry is doing a Sponsored Read To Joe. He will read a book to Joe every day for the rest of September or until he reaches his target of £1,000. I’ll (try to remember to) take a photo every night, to prove he’s actually doing it and both boys will (probably) share their thoughts on the books too. So that I don’t fill this blog with updates, I’ve set up a new site (of course I have) – Harry Reads to Joe – and have added a link to the posts at the top of this page.
Oh and it would be completely wonderful if you could sponsor him.
