Trash-a-thon Pledge Email Template

    Here is a sample script that you can send to your network of family, friends, co-workers, or local organizations to ask for Trash-a-thon pledges.

    Hi {Name},
    I’m participating in an event called Trash-a-thon and I would love your help! Trash-a-thon is a direct-action, citizen science volunteer opportunity. Trash-a-thon raises donations for the number of pieces of trash picked up within 24 hours. All funds raised support the Northcoast Environmental Center’s coastal programs.

    Our cleanup team, {Team Name}, plans to pick up {trash goal} pieces of trash during Earth Week (April 19-25). Would you consider making a pledge to support my team? A suggested pledge could range anywhere from $0.05  – $5 per piece of trash.

    Please visit my fundraising page to learn more about Trash-a-thon and how to support our efforts:

    Thank you so much for your time and consideration!
