We’re in the home stretch! We need 107 more $10 Groupon donations to qualify for our Wacom match of $4,000 by Wednesday. People are more likely to support a cause when referred by someone they know. And they’re more likely to give if you ask them personally.

Today’s challenge: Email 10 of your friends and ask them to join you in supporting your local Help-Portrait event.

Feel free to include pictures you’ve taken, or ones we’ve featured on the blog as examples of the power of Help-Portrait. Here’s a suggestion for the email copy:

Subject: Great way to support Help-Portrait

The Help-Portrait Community has a Groupon Grassroots campaign running until Wed. to raise money for our local events. The deal is $10 for a $20 donation, which provides 2 families the opportunity for a portrait session, three professional prints and a frame.

I’ve seen firsthand how Help-Portrait changes lives. I love volunteering and being part of our local event, and I’m excited to see how many more people we can reach this year.

Help us by donating today: http://hp.cta.gs/groupon

Many thanks!
