Hi [INSERT NAME],

I want to share with you something close to my heart.

I have been personally involved with So They Can a not for profit organisation that empowers communities living in poverty in Kenya and Tanzania through education.

Because of supporters like me, vulnerable children receive a quality education at So They Can’s school, Aberdare Ranges Primary School. Annually, 120 new children are welcomed to the school and receive a quality education, two hot meals a day (often the only food they receive), access to clean water and medical care.

As a passionate supporter, I’m on a mission to expand my support for So They Can by fundraising $1,000.

A donation of $25 can purchase maths textbooks and a $75 donation can purchase a Library Book pack for the school.

Donate here to help me meet my goal and to support communities living in poverty via education: [Insert your URL].

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means the world to communities in East Africa and to me!

Your friend,

PS I leave you with a So They Can video featuring the programs you will be supporting with your kind donation.
