Thank you to all who contributed to this wonderful cause and supported me in my fundraising. I ended up ranking 3rd in the state of Tasmania, which was, needless to say, an excellent outcome! Thank you for helping make a difference to Australians living with Multiple Sclerosis, and happy reading!
I am taking part in The Novel Challenge & 2011 MS Readathon to help raise money for Multiple Sclerosis, the most common disease of the central nervous system affecting more than 18,000 Australians. What this means is that I will be spending the next 30 days (23/09/2011-23/10/2011) reading as many books as I possibly can and probably going slightly cross-eyed in the process.
Below is the link to my fundraising page. If you would like to make a contribution, great or small, to help me reach my goal, I would be most appreciative.
What’s in it for you? Well apart from encouraging my already out-of-control reading habit, you will also be the recipient of some rare and excellent quality karma vibes. How could you say no to that?
If you’d like to find out more about the challenge, MS, how to participate, or where the sponsorship money goes, head to the National Novel Challenge website.
I will also be updating my 30 day reading list at the bottom of this page, so feel free to mosy on here over the next month to see what is occupying my bookworm brain.
Love to you all,
