The Book Fairies will attempt to make history by breaking the Guinness World Record for The Longest Line of Books. To succeed they will layout 25,000 books over 3 miles throughout two elementary schools in Wyandanch that are connected.
Upon completion, the books used to make the record attempt will be distributed to the children, families, and schools of the Wyandanch Community.
This record-breaking attempt is a one-of-a-kind fundraising opportunity to help The Book Fairies sustain and grow their mission of collecting and distributing new and like-new used books to individuals in under-served communities. Like their attempt to make history, funding the mission is challenging and can’t be done alone…
As a company that that believes that access to books for children is a necessity and the first step in closing the reading gap, we firmly support The Book Fairies’ mission. Therefore, we have decided to join the effort and become a fundraiser. We need your help and participation in making this unique fundraising event the success I know it can be.
• The organization's fundraising goal is for each of the 25,000 books to be sponsored at $5/book.
• Our goal is to get 2,000 books sponsored at $5.00 and raise $10,000.00.
• We would appreciate any support you can give to help reach our goal and ask you to pledge as many books as your budget fits.
• Please also consider sharing the fundraiser with your friends and coworkers and encourage them to participate in this once in a lifetime event!
Your donation and sponsorship of The Book Fairies' Guinness World Record Attempt will be utilized to help them fund the distribution of 500,000 additional books to under-served communities.
Together, we can help to break a Guinness World Record and fight illiteracy, one book at a time!
