Letter-writing campaigns are a fast and easy way to raise money. Online donations bring in more than twice the amount raised through traditional letter-writing campaigns! Last year, online letter writing campaigns brought in an average of $63 per donation, while "snail mail" typically brings in about $25 per donation!
The key to a successful letter is to send it to as many people as possible. Send it to your holiday card list, wedding list, high school and college alumni lists, and more! The more people you ask, the more money you will raise…and people like giving money to a great cause.
Use the "Who Do You Know?" chart to help you identify people you can add to your mailing list.
