Dear Friend:

Thank you for making Returning Veteran's Project's fundraiser a big success! With your help, we raised $10,265 and that does not include $1,500 we received from the creator of Veterans Charity Challenge in return for your quick and generous response each time a bonus challenge was issued!

The monies we raised will be used to help us recruit, train, and support sixty additional licensed, professional volunteers in 2013 to deliver free counseling and complementary health care to those we serve: Oregon's returning veterans and their familiy members.

We have already recruited thirty new providers to date and with your continued help, we will gain the remaining thirty by year's end!

If you are in the Portland area tomorrow be sure to stop by the Hawthorne Blvd Burgerville and meet us for lunch! Tomorrow, on Fourth of July, Burgerville on Hawthorne will donate 10% of their proceeds from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm to Returning Veterans Project!

Have a safe and memorable Fourth of July and thank you again for your awesome support!

Sincerely,

Sarah Smith

Dear donors:

Thank you for helping our organization continue to raise dollars for our mission through the Veterans Charity Challenge! To date, we have raised an amazing $9,480 from 61 donors!

Against 91 national contenders, and with still ten days to go, I'm proud to say, that with your help, we still have a shot at winning first, second, or third place, in which case, we would win thousands of extra dollars, greatly benefiting Oregon's returning veterans!.

This is a huge accomplishment and on behalf of those we serve, thank you for your generosity.

Even though you have already given generously, would you consider sending the link to our fundraiser (below) to one or more of your friends!

I thought you might be interested because Bonus Challenge #5 was issued late this morning and speed is critical! The first ten organizations to raise $400 today will each win $500! Wow! This is easy money if you help us!

Can you 'share' your donation on your Facebook page or email the link to our fundraiser with one, two, even ten friends today? It could make a big difference in the life of a returning Oregon veteran or family member.

Individuals throughout Oregon who put their lives on the line, and family members who shared the sacrifice of two long wars, these are the people who will benefit when you help support our mission and expand our services.

With your continued support, we can win Bonus Challenge #5 today, maybe even the top prize (!!) and show the nation that Oregon cares about our returning veterans and their families.

Sincerely,

Sarah Smith

Monte: Just a friendly reminder that if someone opens your fundraising page and clicks on your image, they will not see any personal information about you because you didn't 'update your profile' Sometimes a personal story can make all the difference (such as why you donate of your time generously to RVP or how proud you are of your son's military experience, etc. and make people more inclined to donate to your fundraiser!
