Sample email subject: Will you take the Virtual Sleep Out challenge with me this October?

Hi / Dear [NAME],

I hope you and your loved ones are keeping safe and well.

On Friday, October 2nd, I will be swapping my bed for a sleeping bag, and giving up my usual comforts for one night in support of vulnerable individuals and families facing homelessness during this critical time of need.

Will you take on the Virtual Sleep Out challenge too? Join me and take part with family, friends, or colleagues, or go solo and help to raise desperately needed funds for Galway Simon Community, who provide housing and support services to people experiencing, or at risk of homelessness here in the West.

The Coronavirus pandemic has brought about untold changes for us all. For those facing homelessness, it is a crisis within a crisis!

Even before the pandemic, Galway Simon’s services were stretched more than ever and with the inevitable economic fallout from the crisis looming, they are anticipating an even bigger increase in the demand for their services over the coming months.

They urgently need our support to make sure that they can be there for those who need their help in the challenging times to come.

It’s an easy-to-do, engaging fundraiser and can choose to take part your own way – whether it’s pitching a tent in your garden, bedding down in your living room, or spending the night under the stars in the office car park. On the night there will be a timeline of live-streamed activities to bring everyone together with interactive games, entertainment, and guest appearances.

Take the Challenge, Join the Experience, Make a Difference!
