Help me reach my  [EventName]  fundraising target

Email body copy

Dear [FirstName],

As you may already know, I’m participating in [EventName] this year. I’m really excited about competing - so wish me luck!

A big part of [EventName] is raising much needed funds for charities. I’m supporting  [Nonprofit] - a wonderful organization that is working hard towards [Your nonprofit's mission].

I would really appreciate it if you would sponsor me through my everydayhero online fundraising page. I’m aiming to raise [DollarAmount] will allow [Nonprofit] to [what the money will achieve]. Every dollar counts and even a donation of as little as [DonationAmount] will [what the donation will achieve]. So don’t be shy!

It’s really easy to give online and you get a receipt for your donation emailed straight to you. Just click on the below link to visit my fundraising page.
