Hey Brian,

Did you get a chance to review the document I sent you?

Thanks for your interest in helping our efforts.
We need immediate assistance in two areas: filling state and regional coordinator positions for Texas and raising money for expenses through the sale of t-shirts. T-shirts can be bought individually or in quantity on our site:
I have also attached our informational letter to this note, after you have had a chance to review it, perhaps we can find a time to speak about how you or someone you may know can help us?
Thanks again for your interest, I look forward to your response.
Have a great Thanksgiving.
