As friends of mine, and the good people that you are - I'd like your help with something!
In ______of 2012, I will join a group of volunteers to Thailand on a mission to help to preserve Thailand’s native elephant habitat. I will be working alongside Thai people to help change the fate of elephants in Thailand by creating ways for the people of Surin Province to promote sustainable elephant eco-tourism, preserve their natural habitat and provide an alternative to the current use of elephants as revenue in circuses and street begging operations. Through a program called Globe Aware, I'll help by volunteering my time, effort and money to work on this program.
By making a pledge on my behalf, you are supporting the preservation of the native Elephant habitat, and contributing to a greater world of understanding and awareness. While I'll be personally paying for travel to Thailand and other incurred costs, there is a $1190 program cost. Over 85% of your contribution goes directly to the programs; the other 15% is administration. Your donation is 100% tax deductible and you will receive a receipt for your tax records.
I appreciate your consideration in sponsoring me. Your support, no matter what the amount, is deeply appreciated. You can donate online, by clicking the link below

Globe Aware, a non-profit volunteer organization, is leading and organizing the program. Upon my return, I will send out a brief recap of the volunteer experience to all my sponsors. Thank you in advance for your support. Please call me if you have any questions or comments about this program. I can be reached at phone number_____________.
