Support the readers and raise funds for the Mira Vista PTA!!

  • Flat amount (e.g. $20 regardless of the minutes read)
  • Per minute read (eg.g. $0.05/minute)
  • Per book read (e.g. $2/book)

Spread the word!  Invite family and friends to support the readers.  Please use the sponsorship form to track pledges.
