An email sent by a parent to a friend or family member
Hi [name], I wanted to let you know that [child] is participating in a fundraiser for school and I really like what they’re doing this year. The school has partnered with Raise A Buck, a company that provides photo print products like photo books, photo cards, etc. Since it was time to order our family holiday cards, I jumped on the site to check it out and I loved it! I uploaded our photo to a card, played a bit with the fonts and stuck in the school's promo code at check-out. [child]'s school gets 20% of the sale and I get really great quality cards (I saw a sample at the school!). The site also has a lot of other items like mugs, mouse pads, canvas prints, etc. At some point I'll go back and use our summer photos from Maine to make mugs for my in-laws and cute return labels for the kids' stockings! In any case, I wanted to let you know about the fundraiser in hopes that you might help support [child]'s school. The site is www.raiseabuck.com and you MUST enter the promo code [promo code] in order for the school to get the credit. Hope you all are well - miss you!
