Dear Mr. Jennings:

My name is Glen Jacobsen from the American Red Cross. As you may know, the Red Cross is a non-profit organization providing over half the nation’s blood supply through generous donations. We ask you for a donation of $100,000 worth of products to adequately replenish our donors from the loss of blood they generously give to save lives. A few minutes of refreshments gives blood donors replenishment from their decrease in fluid volume. You will also have the satisfaction of knowing you helped each blood donor save up to three lives.

As one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of snack products, you have the resources available to help fund our mission to save lives. Last year you gave over $6.4 billion in good will charities and you are known for your contributions. With the American Red Cross you, will know your money is going toward a great cause.

You will be helping to ensure that blood is there when you or someone close to you may need it. Most people don't think they'll ever need blood, but many do.

The American Red Cross Lewis and Clark Region is a major supplier in Utah, Idaho and Montana. With the help of volunteer blood donors, the region is the primary blood supplier for over 120 hospitals and medical centers in the area. To provide care for these centers, we would like to use the money for $50,000 in drinks and $50,000 in snacks.

Thank you for taking the time to read our proposal and we look forward to hearing from you. Please contact our public relations director, Hi-C Group, for any questions at 555-357-7535 or hi-cgroup@redcross.org.
