Subject: Give Back to our Community this Holiday Season!

Hi [NAME],

Have you always wanted to give back to our community during the holidays, but can never seem to find the time? Well, I have good news for you. Skip Black Friday and Cyber Monday and go straight to Giving Tuesday!

I am a [personalize-board member, committee member, etc.] at the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation and this year we are participating in the first-ever Giving Tuesday! On this 24-hour day of giving, you can give back to the community we all love by donating to NCCF’s Building Community Fund through our  #NYGivesDaypage. All it takes is one click!

Giving Tuesday will take place on November 28th, starting at 12 am, so take this opportunity to give back to our community this holiday season!
