Join My One Night Without a Home Team

Dear (insert names),

This year I am participating in One Night Without a Home, a campaign to raise funds and offer solidarity and support to the population of men & women facing homelessness in Greene County. On November 22, 2019, I will join people of all ages and backgrounds as we  leave the warmth of our beds and the comfort of our homes to sleep outside, just like thousands of kids have to every night. Our message? “You’re not alone. We know you’re out there, and we want to help.”

I’d love for you to join my team for One Night Wihtout a Home and help me raise funds to support Bridges of Hope. You can choose to join my event, host your own One Night Without a Home, or just help spread the word and raise money to support our nation’s most vulnerable men & women who need a safe space like Bridges of Hope Shelter to sleep.

Thank you for considering joining my sleep out team. If you can’t commit this year, please consider making a donation here: (insert fundraising page url)

Dear (insert names),

This year, I am participating in One Night Without a Home, a campaign to raise funds and offer solidarity and support to the population of men & women facing homelessness in Greene County. On November 22, 2019, I will join people of all ages and backgrounds as we leave the warmth of our beds and the comfort of our homes to sleep outside, just like thousands of men & women have to every night. 

You can help me make a difference in the lives of these people by donating to my One Night Without a Home fundraising campaign here: (insert fundraising page url)

The funds raised go directly to Bridges of Hope, an local non-profit that provides housing and supportive services to men & women facing homelessness. There are over 250 people in Greene County who will face homeslessness this year, and Bridges of Hope is committed to providing not just a safe place for them to sleep, but also the resources, tools, and support for them to find a pathway to independence and realize their dreams.

Thank you for any donation you can make. Remember, you are just one click away from helping America’s most vulnerable men & women have a path towards a better life.

Thank you,

Donation Reminder

Dear (insert names),

It’s the final countdown to November 22, 2019, when I will join hundreds of  other One Night Wihtout a Home participants and sleep out to show support and solidarity to Bridges of Hope Homeless Shelter.

I’m trying to raise ($X amount remaining) before my night outside. These funds go directly to Bridges of Hope. Remember, Bridges is more than just a shelter  for men & women experiencing homelessness. They provide a hub of hope to those expieriencing homelessness, poverty and the consequences of addictive behavior.

Please consider making a donation in support of my One Night Without a Home campaign today. No matter the amount, it’ll be incredibly valuable to these men & women who have so little. Because it’s more than what the money provides – it’s a symbol that you care.

Thank You

Dear (insert names),

Thank you so much for your donation in support of my sleep out, and investing in men & women overcoming homelessness at Bridges of Hope. These men & women can find themselves homeless for lots of reasons, from financial issues to abusive home lives. Bridges of Hope reaches out and offers them love, respect, and the tools they need to build a stable and happy future.

Thank you also for helping me get one step closer to my fundraising goal for One Night Without a Home! I’m so grateful for your support, and know I couldn’t do it without you.
