    "AT-RISK SCHOOLS" --
    Does the thought of speaking to 300 at-risk kids in a terribly dangerous neighborhood scare you? Well don't be afraid - I WANT TO GO! This reward is a similar to the Gold Sponsor contribution, but instead of funding my entire author visit, your $100 (added with others) will help me visit an "At-Risk" school of my choice.

    BANNER AD - SPOT #1 -- My Site, My web site, www.GettingBoysToRead.com, has attracted over 500,000 page views and currently averages about 6,000 unique visitors each month!

Spot #1 is located in prime real estate - the very top-right corner of my site.
