I have a personal favor to ask of you.
A grassroots organization that I stand behind fully and that I have been an active member with for several years now, San Francisco Committee for Human Rights in the Philippines (SF-CHRP), is busy preparing for an exposure trip to the Philippines. The trip will be a three-week integration with different marginalized sectors in urban and rural communities throughout the country. In addition to logistical planning, internal education, cultural and physical conditioning, we are also fundraising to cover airfare, domestic travel, conference fees, lodging, food, and stipends for host families and organizations.
On February 12th, SF-CHRP is hosting a benefit at Bayanihan Community Center called 'Ignite the Flame: Love and Compassion' and we’d be honored for you to join us. Tickets are only $20, including a three-course Filipino dinner (meat and vegan options), live music, stand-up comedy, a DJ, dancing, artwork, and more! Whether you’re single, dating, or in a committed relationship, I guarantee you’ll have a memorable time at this alternate Valentine’s Day event enjoying food, entertainment, and the company of good people. More than that, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting the advancement of social justice through the development of young political activists.
Your purchase of two tickets will go a long way in helping us achieve our goal of filling 112 seats to raise $2,240. Can I count on your pledge of support? To reserve your tickets or to make a donation, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or simply leave a comment below. Please keep in mind that this event is advance ticket sales only.
On behalf of SF-CHRP, thank you for your generous consideration of this request. We hope to see you on February 12th for 'Ignite the Flame: Love and Compassion!'
TJ Basa, Campaigns Officer
P.S. Even if you can’t make it on February 12th, you can still sponsor a deserving young person or low-income adult to attend in your stead. Please consider a donation of $20 or more today!
