Penguin Random House is very excited to announce the launch of our #ProjectReadathon Million Minutes campaign. The one-week reading and giving initiative, April 17 to April 23, gives readers the chance to help children in local communities throughout North America – just by reading.expand
- Each excerpt on the platform notes how many minutes will be added and how many books will be donated throughout the campaign.
- For example, reading a 20-minute excerpt unlocks a 5-book donation from Penguin Random House to Save the Children; reading an hour unlocks a 20-books donation.
- The books will go to Save the Children literacy programs, which help young students transition from learning to read to reading to learn.
