Family Walk Team Tip: 5 Steps To A Successful Letter Writing Campaign

August 4, 2010

It’s not too early to begin your letter writing campaign for the Walk for the Cure! Here are some helpful tips:

Step 1: Develop your mailing list

The larger your distribution list, the larger your results! List ideas include:

  • address book
  • rolodex
  • holiday card list
  • team/league rosters
  • church/club directories
  • vendors
  • fraternal/alumni groups
  • classmates
  • teachers
  • roommates
  • neighbors
  • friends
  • co-workers
  • business colleagues
  • businesses you frequent
  • your email address book

Step 2: Write your letter

Explain why it’s important to you and/or your family that a cure for diabetes is found. We will explore this more in future posts.

Step 3: Mail your letters

Step 4:  Collect the money & turn in your donations

Step 5:  Send thank you notes

Announcing your team’s success and acknowledging your contributors’ generosity will ensure their future support! Did you know that the Letter Writing Campaign is the number one fundraiser for Family Teams across the country?  Many Families raise $10,000, $25,000, even more, just by sharing their story with others, and asking them to pass it along.
