Food scarcity is a huge issue locally in the Hartford area as well as across the United States. One organization that works tirelessly to address this need is Foodshare. Partnering with Foodshare, I led a team at a local Hartford area magnet school for four years in a row. During my leadership, we surpassed all expectations and received annual awards from Foodshare for being the top fundraising school in the Foodshare Hartford campaign. This sample is the first two paragraphs of a plea letter to stakeholders and families urging them to get involved. These particular campaign communications were all voluntary. In May 3, 2009, we would hand over a check to Foodshare for over $9,000.

Elizabeth writes regular articles and blogs to promote global travel with confidence, particularly for women over fifty, even on a tight budget. She often highlights unique places, little known cultural traditions, or a struggle that a particular country or community is facing. This is from one of her blogs on Thai spirit houses, which many Westerners are completely unfamiliar with. It is written to build new cultural awareness for her readers as well as highlight the spiritual awakening she experienced as a result of learning their purpose while in Thailand.
