To whom it may concern,Thanks for reading!
Greetings! My name is Brian Jennings. I am a proud member of the 2009 US Freestyle Kayak Team, and am currently attempting thru family, friends and local businesses, to raise funds to help offset the costs of traveling to the World Freestyle Kayaking Championships in Thun, Switzerland in late August.
As a professional paddler for the past 8 years, making the US Team is the result of years of hard work and dedication. Unfortunately, the state of the global economy has made travel with a kayak, and overseas lodging an expensive proposition, and made financial support from sponsors nearly impossible. Please consider making a donation today in support of my personal participation, and/or towards the entire US Freestyle Kayak Team. I would be extremely grateful for any type of support you are able to provide, including:
Cash – donation toward my personal travel & competition expenses (estimated $3000 per athlete)
Contribution of products - to be used by US Team Members in recognition of the efforts and dedication to kayaking and paddle sports
Sponsorship of a major auction item - to raffle at USA Team fundraiser at the Outdoor Retailer Convention and/or auctioned in the boater communities on-line.
Cash and product donations can be sent to me at the address below. Please contact me at email@example.com regarding the donation of a major auction item.
Thank you again for your time and consideration of assisting me reach the World Championships, and I’ll look forward to hearing from you.
