Extracts from this essay...

Introduction

Media Assignment Part One Write a letter to send to local people to persuade them to send in donations to a particular charity. Dear Sir/Madam, I am the director of a company called shelter, which you may have heard of, and I am writing to you like this to ask for your generosity and kindness to those less fortunate than you. I am hoping that you can spare a small amount of time to read my letter, and consider making a donation. You may be thinking that this is just another junk letter asking for money for a worthless cause, but we need your help. Firstly, I will tell you about our company. Shelter is an organisation, which aims to get as many homeless people off the streets.

Middle

Every year, millions of people are made homeless, for many different reasons. And, it's especially bad at this time of year. The weather is so bad and most of the people living on the streets are lucky to have a blanket. So while you're worrying that you haven't got enough presents, or the turkey's getting burnt, think of the people who will be worrying if they'll get a shop doorway to sleep in tonight. The government and private donations give funding, but we still need your help. Your money could help employ many volunteers, such as * Kitchen * Transportation * Clothing Room * Maintenance * Literacy Courses * Art Lessons * Computer Training. We are also constantly needing: - * Food * Clothing * Laundry Soap * Toiletries * Books ~ Magazines * Maintenance Supplies * Bus Tickets (To send Clients to work)

Conclusion

But I never thought how difficult it would be. On my first night, I was mugged, beaten up, and left alone. If it weren't for a shelter volunteer, who found me on the road, and took me back to one of the centres, I might not be here today. At Shelter, I was offered a bed and food, and counselling. They helped me get back on my feet, and get myself a job. I now have a house and family, and do volunteer work for Shelter whenever I can." With your help, we can help many more people like Sally. All we ask of you is a small donation, whatever you can spare. But please, try and give something. I want to thank you for taking the time to read this letter, and hope you give generously to this very worthy cause. (I have included a freepost envelope to encourage a speedy response.) Yours Sincerely,

    For the war?" She nodded, once again subdued. I smiled radiantly at her, my head playing the now familiar film of my various acts of heroism again. "Yes, I'm going tomorrow! I'm most excited.

    You made me feel needed and loved. That memory was the one I thought of most often in the end. You and I always got on so well. We used to have a bond, an understanding. I used to call you Markie even though your name is Mark and you used to call me Emmy, right up to the very end.
