"Sample Pet Fundraising Letter"
Dear Friend, Greetings and a wag of my tail from Sykesville, Maryland! I am writing to you today because I know that my master needs my help. As you probably know, Tianne has always managed to get herself in some real “jams”. Well, this is no exception. In my 14 long years with her, she has managed to come up with some doozies. Do you know what she has done this time? She has promised to raise at least $225 in sponsorship for the upcoming Relay For Life to benefit the American Cancer Society! She has teamed up with a bunch of other crazies who have agreed to take turns walking laps throughout the night on June 13th & 14th at the Sykesville-Freedom District Fire Dept. carnival grounds. Surely you realize that she can barely raise herself out of bed each day, much less raise $225! That is why I’m typing this letter to you today (which is not easy to do with paws, I must say!) I would appreciate it, and so will she, if you could help Tianne out with this fundraising project. Monies raised for ACS through this event will be used to fund cancer research for a cure as well as for education programs and patient services. Tianne is dedicating her effort in honor of all our many friends who are cancer survivors as well as patients. She also wants to honor and remember all those we’ve loved and lost to cancer through the years…the list is so long it makes my doggy-heart hurt. It is important to us to never forget them and their courageous battles! Your tax-deductible gift made payable to the American Cancer Society would help secure a cancer-free future for all of us! If you are able to help, please send your check to Tianne at ___________________ before June 1st. Thanks so much for your help – I knew I could count on you (Dogs are very good judges of character you know!). Well, I gotta go bark at my masters pulling into the driveway and then take another nap. Thanks and take care! Sincerely, Max Collins
