Dear Caring Friend,
Starting February 14th, your help is needed! Caregiving has reached crisis mode as the aged population quickly grows, leaving providers, families, and communities scrambling to ensure needs are met – often with minimal financial resources. Hope Grows’ services are more important to our community than ever before, and I am pleased to share with you that Hope Grows is an organization caregivers can trust and turn to at any point in their journey, regardless of their financial means.
Will you join me on February 14th and sign up to be a Dear Caring Friend letter writer. This fun new spin we’re putting to this campaign is exciting. You may remember last year’s “Dear Caring Friend” letter writing campaign. Well, this year, we have changed the campaign to a letter writing party.
This new approach gives us the chance to have fun with friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers while helping raise awareness of Hope Grows and our new Hope Grows Iris Movement. Spreading the word means more caregivers can get the help and support they need through our Hope Grows programs and services.
We are asking our supporters to pick a date/time to host their Dear Caring Friend Letter Writing Party between February 14 and March 31. Your involvement and participation is appreciated and we are doing everything we can to make it as easy as possible for you to carry out the details as well as enjoy being with your friends, family, and/or colleagues. Here’s how it works:
- We will send you a host packet that includes simple instructions, preprinted letters, envelopes, and tally sheets.
- Invite 5 or more friends at your home, another place, or even here at Hope Grows. Let Hope Grows know the day/time and how many guests will be joining you.
- Be sure to tell your guests to bring with them 10 (or less) addresses of their friends, family, and/or colleagues.
- Add your own personal note, then address the envelopes to caring friends and neighbors and let Hope Grows stamp and mail the letters.
- Follow up and voila! You have helped grow hope!
If you’re interested in scheduling your party or if you’d like some more information, please contact us at 412.369.4673 or Lisa@hopegrows.net.
Thank you so much for your consideration! We hope to party with you! starting February 14, 2020.
