Thanks to Sonlight’s 2020 Read for Missions Fall Read-A-Thon, your kids can raise money for missions simply by reading great books! There’s no need to don a mask, load up the van, or get a passport. You can make a difference at home by doing something you are probably already doing anyway… reading!
If your kids aren’t independent readers yet, they can still participate because listening to books read aloud to them counts too! See Sonlight’s suggested booklist for uplifting biographies, Bible stories, and fiction with godly themes of redemption.
HOW TO GET STARTED WITH THE SONLIGHT READ-A-THON
1. Sign up to support the Christian ministry of your choice:
- Far East Broadcasting Company: FEBC communicates the Good News among the nations by media… until every man, woman, and child has heard the gospel of Jesus Christ.
- Mission India: MI believes that every man, woman, and child should have the opportunity to hear the name of Jesus. In India, 400 million people never have.
- Pioneers: Pioneers empowers gospel-driven Christians to go to the ends of the earth in relentless pursuit of the unreached.
- Seed Company: Seed Company accelerates Scripture translation to impact the lives and communities of people without God’s Word. Millions don’t have a single Bible vers in their language. You can change that!
2. Then set a reading goal of so many books or so many pages.
3. Keep track of your reading and recruit sponsors using the FREE PRINTABLE TOOLKIT Sonlight sends you after signing up. You’ll get record-keeping forms and fundraising templates.
