Effective Phrasing for Personal Communication
Dear [RECIPIENT NAME],
This year on November 29, I am participating in #GivingTuesday with the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association (NFMCPA). #GivingTuesday is the “Black Friday” or “Cyber Monday” for nonprofits. On the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving people world-wide can show their generosity and donate to their favorite cause. Fibromyalgia and chronic pain are far behind other causes in raising funds to support research, education and advocacy. Here is your chance to make a personal difference in the lives of those with fibromyalgia and chronic pain. It's not everyday that the world stops to celebrate and support nonprofit organizations.
Your donation will directly impact 100 million Americans who suffer from chronic pain and move us closer to a world more accepting of fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions. 100% of funds raised by the NFMCPA will benefit the fibromyalgia and chronic pain community. Donations are tax deductible.
I support the NFMCPA because it advocates for research, access to care, and education of healthcare professionals about fibromyalgia and chronic pain illnesses. The NFMCPA also provides programs and services that help people living with fibromyalgia and chronic pain illnesses improve the quality of their lives. [Enter your personal story here.]
