Friends & Family! As you may or may not know, I am a member of the non profit organization Samoan Solutions. I'm asking you today, to support The Lumana'i Education Gift; which offers monetary/in-kind support to Samoan students here in the SF Bay area who have shown dedication toward community & academics.
5 years ago, we were approached by a gentleman who was in search of financial assistance for his AWESOME nephew that was accepted to attend a private high school. We began our search but were unsuccessful. There were a few scholarships but they were extremely competitive. Since we couldn't find sufficient financial resources, we decided to create an academic gift of our own. This is how, the Lumana'i Education Gift was born.
Since 2010, Samoan Solutions has raised a total of $2,400.00 with help from you, our community members, and awarded 8 local Samoan students at the middle school through university levels. We are proud to open the application process for the fourth straight academic year & hope to exceed our fundraising goals from the past as well as expand the applicant pool.
On behalf of Samoan Solutions, I ask for your support through a monetary gift – however much you feel is appropriate, even a single dollar ($1 from every person in the crowd = success!). I sincerely hope that you decide to help us sustain this program, as we continue to celebrate our youth & aid them in reaching their dreams. You can maximize your gift by spreading the word to your fellow colleagues, friends & family, and encouraging others to support the cause.
Interested in joining our fundraising team? Simply email us at: email@example.com.
Thank you for your time!
