Urban Oasis: Costa Rica Conservation Fundraising Letter
In ________ of 2012, I will join a group of American volunteers to Costa Rica on a mission to help preserve the natural beauty of the Hills of Escazu, where rapid urbanization has already caused serious problems in the ecosystem. The community is seeking volunteers like myself to help institute programs that will defend the natural and cultural wealth that has given so much life to the Central Valley. I will be a part of a team of Americans and Costa Ricans that will facilitate environmental education, reforestation, water preservation, preservation of land through land purchase, and various cultural preservation activities. By making a pledge on my behalf, you are supporting global sustainability projects on a local level, and contributing to a greater world of understanding and awareness.
My goal is to raise at least $900 this year. Over 85% of your contribution goes directly to the programs. Please help me reach that goal with your pledge. Your donation is 100% tax deductible and you will receive a receipt for your tax records. I appreciate your consideration in sponsoring me. Your support, no matter what the amount, is deeply appreciated. You can donate online, by clicking the link below.
