Dear [insert recipient name],
Most of us already send Mother’s Day cards to the women who influence, love and support us. This year that card could help save a woman’s life, if you give a gift through JWI’s Flower Project.
For each $25 donation you make to the Flower Project, JWI sends a beautiful Mother’s Day or Father's Day card to any honoree you choose, thanking him or her for inspiring you. Additionally, your contribution helps JWI send Mother’s Day bouquets and financial literacy resources to 200 domestic violence shelters around the country, brightening the holiday for thousands of women and their children.
Please consider sending Mother’s Day and Father's Day cards with a deeper meaning this year. Supporting the Flower Project is easy - just visit jwi.org/flowerproject to learn more about the project and make a secure contribution. Please lend your support in any way you can, and then pass this along to your friends. Your participation can change the course of a woman’s future.
Abuse affects women of every faith, age, and socioeconomic group, so it is an issue that touches all of us – directly or indirectly, whether we realize it or not. I hope you will join me in supporting JWI through this important project. With each card you give, you create the opportunity to raise awareness about domestic abuse.
A Meaningful Mother's Day Gift for Loved Ones and Women in Need
[Insert organization name] has joined JWI (Jewish Women International) in honoring the 45,000 women and children who will spend Mother's Day in domestic violence shelters. Through the annual Flower Project, JWI sends bouquets of flowers and financial literacy resources to 200 shelters across the United States. By participating in the Flower Project, we can make a difference for these survivors of violence while celebrating the people we love. This project lets you give a gift that honors everything your loved ones have given you - and the person you have become because of it.
Here is how it works:
- You choose an amazing person in your life - mother or father, brother or sister, husband or wife, grandparent, child, friend - to receive a Mother's Day or Father's Day card.
- You make a meaningful $25 donation to JWI in honor of this special person.
- JWI sends a beautiful card, which will arrive by Mother's Day or Father's Day, to each designated recipient, stating that a charitable contribution has been made in his or her honor. Gorgeous e-cards are also available.
- JWI uses proceeds from the sale of these cards to send beautiful bouquets of flowers and financial literacy resources to more than 200 domestic violence shelters on Mother's Day.
- Your donation also funds JWI's year-round work to empower women and girls and break the cycle of domestic violence, and a portion also goes back to [insert organization name].
Contributions to the Flower Project can be made by filling out the enclosed form, online at www.jwi.org/flowerproject, or by phone at 202-857-1300. Be sure to note [insert organization name] as your partner of choice!
