4. Host A Live Event
If you would like to host a mini Read-A-Thon event, you are more than welcome. These events will NOT be hosted, supported financially or organized by PPCM. We will of course support and help advertise them. We cannot guarantee that someone from PPCM will be there at your event, however, we will do our best. These events cannot be the same time as current PPCM hosted Read-A-Thon live events. The event should be "reading" themed for at least an hour. If there is a way to collect donations or raise money for PPCM, let's talk more about this.
