I’m writing this letter of appreciation for all the generous donations you have given me during my fundraising efforts for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I’m even more thankful that in this difficult economy, you were still happy to donate to this wonderful cause, enabling me to raise $1,300. This was my fourth year sailing in the Make-A-Wish regatta sponsored by PWYC, and so far over the years your donations to me have resulted in more than $3,500. On average a wish costs $7,500 to grant, and this year PWYC was able to raise enough money to grant more than two wishes. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is always very appreciative of your donations. I hope to see all of you again next year.
