Here’s how you can read your way to free pizza

Buddy’s Pizza has been running their bookmark program for about 20 years

We all know there is nothing like a good book, and we want to help you and your family get motivated for March is Reading Month -- and Buddy’s Pizza is looking to help.

The popular Detroit pizza brand has been running its bookmark program for about 20 years. Here’s how it works: your child can pick up a Buddy’s bookmark at any of their locations. After reading three books and having a parent, guardian or teacher sign off, you can redeem your bookmark for a free small pizza.

That’s not the only way they are encouraging reading and education. With their Buddy’s Giveback program you can host a Buddy’s event, and 20% of the profits will go to your cause, which includes things like school, sports teams, and more. They’ve had schools raise $2,000 in an evening using this program.

Now is the perfect time to have a fundraiser too, with Buddy’s new all-corner pizza, so everyone can have the best slice. Plus, they have the new hot honey, which is great for topping pizza, wings, and whatever else you’d like.
