Dear Family & Friends:
This January a very special event will be taking place at my high school. On January 13, The Mountain Brook Band Association will host the First Mountain Brook High School Band "Feed the Need Event!"
We are all excited about the Feed the Need event, not only because it is an opportunity for my 60+ fellow band members and I to serve together as we pack, seal and ship 10,000 meals targeted for hungry school age children living in an orphanage in Haiti, but also because it is a tool to provide much-needed funding for our band's participation in the Worldstrides Heritage Music Festival in New York City. I encourage you to watch my YouTube video (link below) where I describe a similar service project I worked on this past summer and how my recent trip to Costa Rica showed me how fortunate we all are in the U.S.!
The Mountain Brook High School Band is committed to the social and musical development of its students. It is our hope that the funds we raise from this year's event will enable our school to fulfill a fantastic humanitarian service project and to compete in the symphonic band competition in New York City (April, 2013).
Our family goal is to raise $4,000 in personal sponsorships through friends and family. Both my family and I have already made a contribution toward my goal and now I am asking you to join us as a financial sponsor. Can I count on your support both for a great service project and to offset expenses for my participation in the band competition in New York? Please know that I am aware of your many other obligations, but an opportunity to feed so many through this service project is very meaningful to me. Your help is hugely important!
To sponsor me, you may simply click on the Support Me button or you may print this page, enclose your check and mail it back to the Mountain Brook Band Association's PO Box below. The Mountain Brook Band Association is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and your contributions are 100% tax deductible.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and generosity. If you can match my own contribution of $100, that would be wonderful! Otherwise, please know that any amount will be greatly appreciated. If I don't hear from you within the next week, I will try and call to answer any questions that you might have.
With sincere thanks, Emma Nichols
