Sample Note:
Dear FIRST NAME,

The school my children attend has been entered into a contest to win $500,000 from the Kohls department store. We can win if we are in the top twenty schools with the most votes on Facebook and we are almost there!

I know you are busy and probably get similar emails but this prize can make a tremendous difference for my children.

Please take 1 minute and go to
http://apps.facebook.com/KohlsCares/school/1218381/cheder-chabad-of-monsey and vote 5 times for "Cheder Chabad of Monsey" (each person can vote 5 times for each school).

If you have friends and family that appreciate the value of a strong education please ask them to vote as well.

I really appreciate you taking the time to do this for me!


All the best,

This campaign is in no way an endorsement of Facebook by Cheder Chabad. It is instead an effort by a group of parents who care for the financial success of the Cheder and are working with the reality that some people are on Facebook.
