Subject: Please Help Me Meet My Goals

Dear Friends and Family,

On September 28th, I’m participating in The Fox Valley Salvation Army River Ride to help the Salvation Army make a difference for our neighbors in need. Not only will I be strapping on my helmet to ride _____ miles, I’m fundraising to support vital services which reach thousands of men, women and children each year. In addition to food for the hungry, the Fox Valley Salvation Army Centers in Kane County provide clothing and furniture, rent and utility assistance, spiritual support and youth programming, among other services.

They can’t do it alone… and neither can I!

I have set a personal goal to raise $_______ before this year’s River Ride. Here’s how you can help me:

  1. Send a check to me at:
    (Please make checks payable to the Salvation Army and note “River Ride” on the memo line)
  2. Donate online by visiting my personal fundraising page at: (insert page URL here)
  3. Pass it on… forward this message to others who might be interested in helping those who are struggling to overcome the challenges of poverty.
  4. Join me on the road! Head to (insert URL here) to register now!

All donations to my Ride are 100% tax-deductible. The Salvation Army is happy to send a receipt for your records.

Thank you in advance for helping me meet my goal! Every little bit helps!
