You can help support the Desert Island Supply Co. by participating in our Banned Books Read-a-Thon, a celebration of the freedom to think, read and create.
The read-a-thon will take place over 36 hours on September 21-22 and feature a nonstop, out-loud, live-streamed reading of more than a dozen classic books that have been banned over the years—everything from Where the Wild Things Are and Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret to Invisible Man and Beloved.
The read-a-thon works like a walk-a-thon, and readers of all ages are welcome. You sign up here on Fundly as a fundraiser and create a fundraising goal. Then, you ask your friends, family, co-workers and others to support your campaign for DISCO! All proceeds support DISCO programming that aims to give students in the Birmingham area more opportunities to write and create.
After you sign up as a fundraiser, you will receive an email from DISCO to schedule a 5- to 10-minute reading time that suits you on either Saturday, September 21, or Sunday, September 22.
If you don't want to participate as a reader/fundraiser, you can help by donating to our campaign here and by spreading the word by becoming a "Supporter" of the campaign.
Thank you for helping us reach our goal!
