Dear Sir,


On behalf of Bright Lights Association, I am writing to invite you through your esteemed company to participate in the above mentioned. Bright Lights is a non-Government organization that has been set up by a group of concerned and caring businesses that desired to bless the underprivileged in the community.

This year, Bright Lights is planning to bring joy to a children’s home in Baltimore which was found to be lacking in books and computers. As such, Bright Lights has taken on the task of sourcing and soliciting financial assistance or in-kind to give the children at this home the needed edge to compete in society. There are plans to set up a library and computer room with a dozen computers for the children’s learning.

It would be appreciated if you and your esteemed company would consider assisting in cash or kind, according to the needs mentioned. All donations are tax exempt.

We look forward to your prompt response.

Yours truly,

Betty Moore

Fundraising President
