Need help writing a family letter for donations (gift)
Ah PA'ers, you're so resilient and thoughtful. I'm trying to figure out how best to word a letter to family members on my g/f's side, a sort of rally to get her a gift.
She wants an iPad and I want to get her the 32GB Wifi Version - I'm trying to allot $600 to the total and I need some help doing it, so I'm writing an email to her family to see about organizing this effort. I have about $150-200 and I don't expect anyone to match me $ for $, but hopefully we can get enough together.
Would you kind folks mind helping me edit this so I don't sound too expectant or greedy? I'm honestly trying to get her something she really really wants:
Hi everybody! I figured I'd give you guys a heads up on the plan so far. J has gone to the dark side and wants an iPad for her birthday, so I've been trying to figure out the best way to get it.
I figure I'd just solicit for donations in lieu of individual gifts. I want to take her to a nice dinner for the day of, so that should take care of the main even, but I figure we can all meet up for lunch or dinner or something if you guys want to do something like that!
Anyways, I have about $150-200 to contribute and I'm not asking for anyone to match it, but I hope to reach $600 between everyone. If not, I think we can get pretty close!
If you're interested, please let me know and I'll organize picking it up. She's going to be really excited when she gets it and I think it'd be cool to have it to her sometime labor day weekend! If you're not able, it's no big deal, believe me, we both know the iPad would be a luxury in this day and age!
Thanks for reading, hope to see you guys that weekend!
