Caleb J. Ross, author of Stranger Will and I Didn’t Mean to be Kevin, butt of (or genius behind) the epic Fuck Caleb J. Ross campaign, and former guest poster here at nascentnovelist, has decided to help save the world. Part of it, anyway.
He’s participating in the March of Dimes campaign, and his quest for money is taking an interesting turn. He decided to merge the fundraising efforts with his nerdy video-making hobby and nerdy reading hobby. And thus, Force-Caleb-Read-Harry-Potter-A-Thon was born.
Watch Caleb outline the project in this video:
Basically, the idea is that so many people (including me) say Harry Potter is such a great series (one Caleb’s never intended on reading, and have no desire to read, by the way) that he’s trying to leverage that passion for the sake of raising money for the March of Dimes.
For every 2 dollars he receives in donations, he’ll read 1 page of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. At the end of each week, he’ll tally the donations, read the appropriate number of pages, and then record a video where he’ll offer his thoughts on the book so far.
Now, even if you’re not a big fan of the HP saga, you could still donate. I mean, what’s more fun than forcing people to do stuff for you? I can’t think of a single thing.
To donate, simply go to http://cjrlit.com/potterbaby, all lowercase to donate. Any amount of money helps.
The deadline for donations is APRIL 28th!
What are you waiting for?
