Dear [Recipient name], 

On December 5th, I will be participating in KU THON 2015. This is a student-run organization that raises money for KU Pediatrics, our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Throughout the year we fundraise leading up to our big event, the Dance Marathon. At the marathon over 500 KU students unite and stand on their feet for 12 hours to show their support for those kids who cannot. We have the miracle families attend and our goal is to give the kids a day to forget the hospital visits and be a normal kid.

One in ten kids in North America is treated at a Children’s Miracle Network hospital each year. Without donations these hospitals would not be able to meet the needs of these families. As an organization we have made a goal of $75,000, and the money we raise goes directly to helping the families at KU Pediatrics.

To help us reach that $75,000 goal I have pledged to raise $[your fundraising goal] and I need your help to reach that goal. There are two ways in which to donate: one is to send me a check written to KU Dance Marathon. You can send it to the following address: 

KU Dance Marathon 

1301 Jayhawk Blvd Room 400

Lawrence, KS 66045

Make sure you include my name in the memo line so it will be included in my personal fundraising. 

The other option is by going to my personal fundraising page:

Our dream is to give these families support during times of unimaginable situations. Together we are changing lives -- without you, it just wouldn’t be possible. Thank you so much for your support!

Sincerely,

[Your name]
