.The Children’s Organization has several grants of up to $1000 to fund new projects designed to help children in developing countries. To apply, please write to us giving details about yourself, the project you are planning, and saying how you would spend the money.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing in connection with your advertisement and would like to apply for a grant.
I am a seventeen-year-old student at Brandon College in Poland. I am studying to become a teacher. I have always been interested in young people. Every year I spend my holiday on the summer camp for children as an instructor.
Last year, during our classes, we read about how many problems children in developing countries have, like lack of food, clothes or medicine. We decided to help them. So then we organized a collection of second-hand clothes and sent them to the Red Cross. Since most children in developing countries are not given/do not get any Christmas presents because their parents are very poor or they even do not have any parents, this year we would like to buy some Christmas presents as well as food and medicine.
We have already earned $500 by arranging a flea market - selling our stuff which we had at home that we did not use. We would need $1200 - $500 for food, $500 for medicine, $200 for Christmas gifts. We would be really grateful for a grant of $700.
I look forward to hearing from you.
