Dear CEO King,
My name is Christopher. I am 15 years old, and I live in Orlando, Florida. I am contacting you because I need your help. In the Rosemont community of Orlando, I am very involved. The BBT bank even sponsors us for a sport we do (Dueling Dragons of Orlando). Similarly, I am an athlete at my school. At my school, I am on the basketball team. In January of 2017, my basketball team is going to South Carolina for a tournament. However, the next week, we're going on another tournament to Pensacola. All of these tournaments, of course, is not free. We have to individually pay to fund our trips. I believe I can be a help in this season of giving by raising money for my team. This will help alleviate financial stress on parents. My goal is $2,500. With your help, I can meet or surpass this goal. This will put us in a good position during these trips. I'm humbly asking, CEO King, for your help to raise money for me to help my team go to South Carolina and beyond. It will really be beneficial to my school to know that students can help. And with your help, I can accomplish that goal..
Thank you in advance for your help and consideration Christopher
