Suggested Subject: Help me join the Kids Council of Heroes!

Hi Super Friend,

I’ve always wanted to be a superhero. I’ve grown up with superheroes all around me: The Avengers, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man… they’re everywhere! But I always hoped I would one day see a superhero in real life.

Then I heard about CASA, and how they are real-life heroes for kids in foster care. CASA volunteers take the time to get to know kids and to be there for them when things are hard. They talk to the kid’s family, teachers and doctors. Then they go to court to tell a judge what the kid needs. 

Now that I know more about foster care, I want to help CASA be there for kids who need us. So, this Super September, I’ll get the chance to be a superhero for other kids as part of the 2020 CASA Superhero Run!

I may be too young to be a CASA volunteer, but I can be a hero by raising [$YOUR GOAL - $250 or more] so CASA can help more kids. Will you help me be a superhero by donating today at [YOUR PERSONAL FUNDRAISING LINK]?

[YOUR NAME] 

P.S. You are also welcome to join me at www.casasuperherorun.com. Run a virtual 5K, enter the costume contest, or become a Super Fundraiser!
