Subject line: I am participating with the Read-A-Thon for Toys! Will you sponsor me?! 

Dear [insert name], 

You might have heard that I have signed up as a reader for the Greenwich Free Library’s Read-a-Thon for Toys!  

This read-a-thon is to benefit the Tri-County Marines Toys for Girls and Boys. This non-profit organization, run by the local Marine Corps League Memorial Detachment No. 2, collects toys for distribution throughout Warren, Washington and Saratoga Counties and serves 800-900 local children each holiday season. 

 My goal during this special weekend event in December, is to read [insert goal time] hours.   

Would you be willing to sign up as my sponsor?  

As my sponsor you will pledge to provide one toy ($10 value or more) to Toys for Girls and Boys. If you cannot drop off a toy to the box in the lobby of the Greenwich Free Library a monetary donation can be made instead by visiting   

A gift of any amount would mean the world to me. 

I’d love to talk to you more about my fundraiser, so please don’t hesitate to reach out.
