Can You Help.?
As you know, Pieta House have developed a very special relationship over the last number of years with communities and organisations across Ireland.. We have taken a great amount of pride in the amount of public support we have received and can honestly say we would not have made such incredible progress without such invaluable support.
You may be aware that we are under increasing financial pressure – the demand on our service is so relentless that for the first time in 6 years we are operating a waiting list. We are doing everything we can do eliminate this, but it’s not easy.
Our annual fundraiser, Darkness into Light, is our biggest event of the year, and we are calling on all supporters of Pieta House to make this the most successful year yet. I am asking you to help us promote this awe-inspiring event, by doing any of the following:
> I have written a letter encouraging all who can to participate in Darkness into Light. Would it be possible to send this email to all your staff/contacts?
> Would it be possible to send you some posters and registration forms advertising the event and could you put them up in an appropriate location?
> How about having our Countdown Banner on your intranet (or website if you really love us!) Please see http://dil.pieta.ie for an idea of what we mean. This has been the most popular way for people to register to date.
> If you have any internal Newsletters or emails, would you be able to mention Darkness into Light for us?
> If you have any other suggestions as to how we can promote this event we would be delighted to hear from you.
If you could help us out with any of the above for Pieta House, we would be so grateful. In the same breath, if you cannot help us directly this year, we totally understand – but if you could forward this email onto someone you know who might be able to help us, that would be brilliant.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this email.
