Dear [Friend],

 

I’m writing to let you know that I am participating in the First Annual Ride for Palestine – a cycling fundraiser that supports programs for children in Palestine because I believe that all children should be able to play, learn, and dream. That includes children in Palestine that are growing up under Israeli occupation and apartheid. 

 

I will be participating in the Ride in Berkeley on July 17 and hope you’ll support my ride by making a donation [consider including a specific amount] to help me reach my fundraising goal of [goal amount]. You can donate on my Ride for Palestine page here.  [link]

 

The funds raised by me, and the other riders will go to the Middle East Children’s Alliance, a non-profit organization in Berkeley, CA that has been supporting children in Palestine for more than thirty years. The funds will go to things like arts education, psychological counseling, English classes, computer training, sports, and more.

 

[Add a note here about why this cause and organization are important to you! Personal details make a huge difference! For example, “My best friend’s grandparents are Palestinian refugees and he told me how they can’t go back, and how other people can’t leave.”]

 

Many thanks for your support!

 

Warm regards,
