hi there,

i am a student intending on going to africa for three months to volunteer with aids sufferers in a medical centre, with street children and in schools working with the missionarys out there. i was wanting to write a letter to send to businesses asking them if they would be willing to either sponsor me or donate something which i can raffle off to raise money for the trip and the projects. i also thought to ask them to donate toys and clothes etc that i can take over or donate money with which i could buy stuff over there thus supporting their economy.

Could someone please help me word a letter which would get all of these points across in a constructive way.

thank you
Hi Si-effe87, and welcome to the forums.

We don't write letters for people, but if you write it, we can take a look at it to see if there are any errors.

If you write your letter, post it, and someone will take a look.

Good luck with your project.

Hi,
Congratulations to you for having planned for trip to Africa for a social cause.
It would be better if you write one (a kind of rough draft or something like that) which can be revised and edited by the members. Please make your letter more persuading as your ultimate objective should be persuading people to donate or sponsor for your trip.

Thanks and all the best.

My name is _____, I am a medical student at the university of _____, this year I have taken a gap year and intend on going to Kenya in March to volunteer for three months with the Franciscan missionary sisters. They have been working tirelessly in Kenya for many years now and are involved in a number of projects. Examples of the kind of tasks I will be involved in are:

For those to frail to make the journey to the centre I will assist the nurse in visiting them in their homes where I will help out with bed baths and personal care.

- Going into primary schools to help with teaching and promote sexual abstinence, and educate on safe sex to help curb the spread of the disease.

- Working with street children and those left orphaned by the disease providing food, clothes and basic education.

I am writing this letter to kindly ask if your company would be willing to financially sponsor me, make a donation to help buy books,clothes,toilettries, or donate a prize which can be raffled.
