Moving right along

August 15, 2009 at 2:38 pm

Official countdown–16 days to go until August 31. Registrations are starting to roll in. We have our first team to register–The Pencak Bookmarks have a reading goal of 7, 750 pages and a donation goal of $640. Check out their donation page. It looks like a real family affair.

Our teams come in all shapes and sizes. Small teams can compete with big teams because we use amount per member when calculating for most prizes. So–pages read per member or words written per member or (most important) $$ earned per member.

Last year all kinds of different people banned together to form teams: critique groups, members of the same writing organization as well as people who blog together and their readers. Teams could be folks who work together or live in the same town. Those who have never met in person, but only know each other online, any group of humans who want to read or write for a great cause. And yes–you can even mix readers and writers on your team.

It’s easy to form a team. Follow the steps on the registration page. The team leader registers with CFF first, selecting “Team Leader” when that option comes up. Next, send e-mails to your friends with the link to your team page. Who will you invite to join your team?
