We’ve tried to answer many common questions below, but if you need additional help, please get in touch with your Mind Growth Education representative, Isabelle, at email@example.com.
Q: How does your reading log programs work?
A: Teachers and/or students record the number of minutes they’ve read in class or at home on a daily basis by signing into their Mind Growth Education account. The program automatically converts their minutes into kilometres and advances their avatar on a virtual adventure across the World through various countries starting in Canada down to the eastern hemisphere and back up again through the Western Hemisphere and end in United States of America. Every time a participant/class arrives at one of the major points on their adventure, a little blurb pops up with educational facts about that country. The students also get to earn badges and get printable worksheets as they progress on their reading journey. (Please note: For every 20 minutes, you will travel approx. 240 kilometres on the adventure map).
Q: What if a class/student reads across the World before the
event is over?
A: We encourage they keep on logging in those minutes! The challenge will then be “How many times could you read across the World until the end of your event?” – You could say something like “Now that you’ve read across the World once, can you do it twice by the end of the event?”. The record so far is 3 times by a grade 7 student from Sudbury, ON.
Q: What if a student or one of the families needs help (i.e.
cannot remember his/her username and/or password). What to do?
A: Just email, Isabelle, your Mind Growth Education representative, with your question(s) and she’ll be happy to help.
Q: My child cannot log into their reading log account?
A: There are a few things we'd like for you to try:
1) Make sure you are entering the correct spelling of your login credentials. (i.e. lowercase and not uppercase, "t" and not "+", etc.)
2) It might be your browser, try logging in on a different browser. To use Mind Growth Education’s features and benefits from your computer, you need the most up-to-date version of your web browser. For the best experience, update your browser or switch to another one. Mind Growth Education supports Google Chrome, Firefox, MS Edge, Safari, and Opera.
3) If both of these recommendations do not work, please email, Isabelle, your Mind Growth Education representative, with your question(s) and she’ll be happy to help.
Q: Can the organizer collect offline funds?
A: Using our online fundraising platform allows you to avoid having to handle and manage cash. However, if the person is not able to give online, many organizers have accepted cash or cheques and then personally contribute the exact amount online afterwards. Contribute online here: https://fundrazr.com/forestparkreadathon2022
Q: Do the contributors get tax receipts?
A: Unfortunately, no. Contributions made to a personal fundraiser, rather than a charity fundraiser, are generally considered to be personal gifts and are not guaranteed to be tax-deductible. But, you can always check with a tax professional to be sure. You will not be issued a tax receipt from FundRazr nor Mind Growth Education. That being said, contributors do receive access to our digital coupon sheet with great savings on awesome stuff (kid & adult books, candles, soaps, bath bubbles, digital reading log program, etc.) as a thank you gift for any contribution $10 or more.
Q: How do I view our school’s online fundraising and reading efforts?
A: Go to your Master Campaign page where you will be able to see your school’s online fundraising efforts (https://fundrazr.com/forestparkreadathon2022). We will also be updating the “followers/subscribers” on your master campaign page a few times a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays) with a total reading count, also sending encouraging messages and assigning weekend homework ;) through updates!
Q: How do I make an online contribution?
A: Step #1: Go to the following link: https://fundrazr.com/forestparkreadathon2022. Step #2: Click on the “CONTRIBUTE” button. Easy as that!
Q: Where do our contributions go?
A: 85% of the net funds raised will help purchase new books, makerspace materials, technology and anything else to inspire the love of reading. The remaining 15% goes towards Mind Growth Education to help cover costs such as subscription cost, certificates of achievement, administrative fee + the Paypal or Stripe payment processing fees and transaction costs.
Happy reading, happy fundraising and thank you to those who are supporting this event! :)
