Non Profits Seek Holiday Angels

This is the graphic on the envelope we're sending to about 1900 people this week. Many are people who have sent donations in the past. Some have donated almost every year since 1993. Others are people who joined one of our events this year, or were added to the mailing by one of our staff.

I wish I could be sending 100,000 of these, and a printed newsletter as well. We'd show pictures and videos from the Cabrini Connections program and the Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conferences. We'd show the maps we create and the art created by our students.

We can't do this though because of the high costs of printing and postage and because we don't have that many names in our database.

What we can do is share this information via blogs and social media and encourage friends, volunteers, supporters and strangers to visit our web sites, learn what we do, and forward this information to others.

If enough people take time each day to use Twitter, Facebook, email and regular face-to-face networking to show the good work we're doing and how we share this with people all over the world, we feel many would go to our site to make donations and become benefactors.

You can find a pdf of the 2010 Holiday Appeal letter and a response form here.

Please help us share this throughout the Chicago region, the USA and the world over and over for the next 30 days.

Thank you for helping us help inner city youth.
