PTT/GRIN 1st Annual Holiday Raffle
MASSAGE RAFFLE AND FUNDRAISER FOR FAMILIES IN NEED THIS HOLIDAY
Hi. This is Shannon, the owner of Precision Touch Therapy of Tucson. Your business and loyalty to us has, and always will be, invaluable. As our full 2nd year in business is upon us, I want PTT to become a staple in the Tucson community. Please take a few minutes to read ahead for this holiday season of giving.
This holiday season, we have decided as a team, that we want to sponsor/help a few families that may otherwise go without. We also want to donate a portion of money raised to Youth On Their Own. We are teaming up with GRIN (a.k.a. Grandparents In Residence) which is a local organization started by Suzi Hileman in the aftermath of the January 8th shootings that happened here in Tucson and is also in honor of her little friend Christina Taylor-Green who is now in heaven.
What are we raffling and for how much? Right? You can buy an unlimited amount of raffle tickets for the price of $25.00 each. For every 50 raffle tickets sold, we will be drawing a name for your chance at a years worth of massages (1 massage/month in 2014!!). That's your chance at 12 massages for $25.00! Although the massages are a wonderful reward for your raffle purchase, the bigger reward lies in your donation, where the money will go, and the smiles that will be put in these families hearts. Samantha, Veronica and myself would like to choose four or five families in Tucson who would otherwise not have a Christmas and give them one! Each family will receive a card with every single person's name who purchases or donates to our raffle.
Our goal is to sell a MINIMUM of 200 tickets. If we can sell more, that would be all the more amazing. I encourage you to forward this message, copy and paste, whatever it takes to your friends and family and share it on Facebook. I look forward to the outcome of this raffle, and pending its huge success, this will be deemed the "PTT/GRIN 1st Annual Holiday Raffle." If you are just in the mood to donate to our cause, we will gladly accept your tax deductible, "donations only" contribution directly to GRIN or you can donate through PayPal directly through GRIN's website. Suzi will be able to provide you with the appropriate tax documents. Please visit GRIN's website to learn more about what they do!
I've always believed that the way I have chosen to run my business, and our quality of massages at the affordable prices that we offer them, would one day be rewarded and I would be able to pay it forward. This is my...let me restate, this is OUR opportunity to do so! I, Shannon, will also, and already have begun as of November 1, to save all of my tips to add to the pot now through December 15, which is when we will stop selling the raffle tickets. I'd like to say we will then be playing Santa, but Santa is not what Christmas is about. It is at this time that we will see what families need what and utilize the money raised to give back.
We are looking for families who can't even afford to buy a tree, pay their bills, or are living without electricity, etc... Last year, we were happy to deliver toilet paper, laundry soap, groceries, clothing, and other basic necessities for daily living to a family on the reservation. They were very, very thankful and very much in need. The food provided was their Christmas meal and more. I tell you this because I'm also looking for your recommendations of a family that you know of that may be in need. We will choose from these recommendations who we will be helping.
How do you purchase? We will have tickets at the studio for your purchase. You can send us a check or money order in the mail and label it "raffle", or purchase tickets when you are in the studio for your massages. The minute we receive your purchase/donations with your name, address and phone number, we will write your name on a ticket and place it in a jar until the day of the drawing, December 20th.
Let's make this a success together! I'm looking forward to giving back, and hope my clients/friends will join me in the journey!
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Shannon L. Haskie,
Owner/Precision Touch Therapy of Tucson
