This is Z! Z attends a Title I school, meaning a high percentage of the students come from families living at or below poverty level. A lot of things like field trips are paid for by the PTO for kids whose families literally can’t afford $12 for a field trip. They are underfunded and under-equipped and we really need to raise a big chunk of money with this READ-A-THON!

From February 8th  to February 21st, every 10 minutes Z reads counts as a unit. Each unit counts as one pledge donation… so if he reads 10 units overall and you pledged 50 cents per unit, he gets $5 from you. We’ll take pledges from everywhere – comment below and PayPal the money (it goes straight to Z’s Dad) and he’ll get it in his envelope. Funds need to be in by March 1st!

You can also make a one-time donation if you prefer! Use the form below.

Make sure you include your email address in your comment so we know who to ping for the PayPal funds.
*Z does about 1-2 units per day (for 14 days) to help with your math-ing.


tl;dr version (short version) for pledging!
1. Pick an amount you’ll donate per unit Z reads and leave a comment on this blog post!
2. On 2/22 we’ll let you know how many units Z has read from 2/8 to 2/21 via the email you use on your comment.
3. You Paypal (OR you can send in the money OR if you’re local give) the money to Z’s Dad.
4. Z’s Dad will drop off the money at his school to help awesome kids!

OR you can do a one-time donation!


You do not need a PayPal account to donate here, you can do it via your Credit Card as well.

Alternatively, you can send a check or money order to Z’s Dad, just email Tabz for info – supcomtabz at
