I have some news to share with you.
I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for poor children and adults. I decided to take my interest in serving poor people to the next level. I have become a Angel For The Poor through our personal fundraising program called 'Prayer and Action'.
My goal is to inspire my family, friends, and others to raise enough money -- [$X] -- to [YOUR PROJECT]. I need 100 people to contribute [$Y] each to reach this shared goal.
Let’s fulfill the dream of a poor [FAMILY/ADULT/CHILD] to have [E.G. a roof over their heads that they can call home].
Can you please donate [$Y] or more? To learn more or to donate now, please go to http://www.catholicshopping.com/[YOUR_NAME]

I have made some progress since I wrote to you a few [DAYS/WEEKS/MONTHS] ago. Thanks to the generosity of friends, family, and acquaintances, I have raised [$X] so far.
To reach my goal of [$Z], I need to raise just [$Y]. Any amount you can give will be appreciated and will help relieve the suffering caused by extreme poverty.
