Opportunity of a Lifetime
I got offered the chance to go play softball in Curacao in the Caribbean for a week in June. My coach got an email the other day about the USAAI looking for 2 more players to fill their 14 spot roster and I'm pretty sure this is one of those things that I just can't pass up. Of course it's not free and I have to raise the money to go. It's a little over $2,700 but I am sure that when I get back from this trip it will be well worth it.

They provided me with a fundraising letter to send out to friends, family and businesses but I've never done these before; not exactly sure how it works. I'm playing softball in NC right now and most of the people I know are back in WA. Do I print out and mail the letters or email them or both?? What would be the most effective way and who are the most important people to send it to as far as businesses? I don't have a lot of time since the trip is June 6th-13th and the money is due before then.

Thanks for the help!

Sweet! Congratulations Jamie!

Agreed, do what you can, you might be surprised at how many people would be willing to help make something like this happen for you.

Good luck!
