Sample 10: Donation Request Letter for Food
Dear Sir/ Ma’am,
We all are well aware of the recent unfortunate earthquake in Nepal which devastated thousands of lives. This sudden natural calamity has affected the small peaceful country terribly. According to reports, many have lost their lives and many are lacking the basic need to survive. There is a huge need for food resources currently and people are living on the minimum amount of food.
A few days ago, our Organisation “Let there be light” had formed a six-member rescue team who surveyed the situation in Nepal and jotted down the food items which are on high demand in the earthquake affected areas. We have estimated the expense of the food items which we plan to distribute. We will mainly focus on dry food, rice, staples, and infant food. Below is a list we plan to buy and pack to deliver:
- Puffed rice
- Tea bags
- Milk powder
- Salt and other spices
- Infant food items like powder milk, infant milk, cereals
- Soya chunks
- Packaged water bottles
- Geolin tablets
Along with the mentioned items we have planned to buy some blankets, plastic sheets, infant clothes, shawls, and sanitary napkins.
The whole budget has been decided for this expense is Rs. 50,000. This expense includes transport as well.
We have started a crowdfunding campaign from “Let there be light” and request, you to join the pledge to make this mission successful. We will accept any kind of relief you wish to donate. Any amount of financial aid is acceptable. You can donate food items also if you wish.
If you are willing to donate food items please check the proper packages and expiry date. You may donate old, reusable clothes and blankets too. Make sure they are in a clean state.
To donate money, please visit our website www.XYZ.com and navigate to ‘Donate for XYZ’ link. You will avail every kind of standard payment methods. If you wish to pay by cash, you can send the money directly to our organization or meet our volunteer personally. Any of the cases, you will receive the receipt invoice immediately.
Please be noted I’ve campaign is open up to 15th May 2015 and we will not be able to collect fund after this period. Therefore, please donate within the mentioned date so that we can reach with help and aid in Nepal on time.
