Hope Shines’ First Annual Friend-Raiser: We don’t want your money … We just want your friends!
Dear Hope Shines Supporters on our Website, Facebook and Twitter,
Over the last four years, Hope Shines has grown from one person’s idea into an official non-profit organization that is now helping over 150 impoverished children. Your support has helped our camps to flourish, and we now have more volunteers than ever. From here, the sky is the limit!
However, to continue to expand, we need to reach new people with new ideas and fresh enthusiasm. Your friends could be the next wave of camp volunteers, attend future Hope Shines social events, or donate old books or craft supplies to the orphan centers with which we work.
The goal for our first Friend-Raiser is to gain 500 new contacts by April 30th. We can only achieve this if each of you replies with the names and email addresses of the friends, family, and business associates that would be interested in learning more about our projects. Just hit reply to this email or send them to email@example.com. If you are not signed up for our mailing list click here: http://eepurl.com/kfZ-.When we receive your contacts, we will reach out to them to introduce ourselves. If they are interested in growing with our grassroots organization, we will add them to our permanent mailing list.
Thank you for your support, and stay tuned for information about our Spring Fling fundraising event in New York City!
Thank you very much and Murakoze cyane,
The Hope Shines Team
Pictured here is our 2010 volunteer squad at the graduation ceremony. The kids did an awesome dance for us and then asked us to do one too. The only dance we all knew was the Electric Slide…!
