Hello Contact First Name,
Meet Travis Felton & His Family
Travis Felton is an Iraqi war veteran and proud father of a Georgia family of nine. Since his discharge from the Army Travis has struggled to care for them despite a full-time job as a security guard.
He needs temporary financial assistance to pay for basic living expenses and repay loans he received when not working and waiting for the VA to approve his combat-connected disability claim. Travis expects his income to increase significantly. His employer expects him to receive a security clearance from Homeland Security in May and then will raise his wages to $3000 a month. Travis also has submitted a well-supported claim for an increase in his income from the VA. A ruling is expected in August 2009. Rebuild Hope is helping the Felton Family through this difficult transition period.
Please Help Us Help Them
Asking a friend, neighbor or associate for money - even for a worthy cause - is not easy for most Americans. But one-to-one advocacy, that is another story. Philanthropic organizations of all kinds depend on supporters to spread-the-word about their humanitarian missions and programs, and Americans have traditionally responded with unmatched generosity.
As a young non-profit Rebuild Hope needs to build a large network of supporters, and the current recession has only added greater urgency to our efforts. More injured veterans are now struggling to make ends meet as full-time jobs disappear, available aid shrinks, and most wait four to six months for the Veterans Administration to rule on their claims for disability-connected compensation.
In this tough fund-raising environment, Rebuild Hope needs you to not only make donations to our families but also encourage your friends, neighbors and associates to join our financial support network, and ask them to get even more people involved. We can help you introduce Rebuild Hope to others in your community, and are ready to support your efforts.
President & Founder Rebuild Hope
|Host A Reception For Rebuild Hope
One of the best ways you can introduce others to Rebuild Hope is to host a reception in your home. You invite your friends, neighbors and associates and we handle all the logistics and costs. A Rebuild Hope reception is informal, lasts a couple of hours, and includes a short program. We aim to meet potential donors, volunteers and people who can introduce Rebuild Hope to companies, community organizations and other individuals. And a reception is a low-key fund-raising affair. We simply send a follow-up letter that requests help.
