Sample Letter to Recruit Ambassadors
Dear [Friend or Colleague]
I have learned about this important campaign and I have joined. I would be delighted if
you would join as well. See the letter below explaining what it means to be a White
Ribbon Day Ambassador.
You can join by visiting the following website:
Dear Friends and Colleagues:
Do something for different for Valentine’s Day this year! Help highlight the need to
combine safety and respect with romance and love.
On February 14, 2009, Jane Doe Inc. will host the second annual statewide White Ribbon
Day Campaign to call upon men of good heart to stand up and be counted as allies
against violence against women, sexual assault and domestic violence. We are writing in
the hope that you will join as a Ambassador.
Massachusetts White Ribbon Day 2009 is part of an international effort to engage more
men and boys to help end violence against women. You have already demonstrated your
leadership in this arena. You can inspire other men to make a public and private
commitment to promote respectful, safe and healthy relationships and communities.
The crux of the campaign is for individual men to take the White Ribbon pledge and to
get involved on the local and statewide levels. The impact of thousands of men from all
walks of life throughout Massachusetts declaring their commitment to this principle of
non-violence will, with your help, be far-reaching and long-lasting.
As an White Ribbon Day Ambassador, we would ask that you lend your name and
encourage 5 to 10 of your male friends and colleagues to wear the White Ribbon with
you on February 14th.
You can find out more about the Massachusetts and International White Ribbon
Campaign and our plans for Massachusetts on our website:
If you are interested in finding out how you can be a part of this exciting campaign,
please let me know. It would be an honor to have you join with me as a White Ribbon
Men's Initiative for Jane Doe Inc.
