BIG SUNDAY_Huge Non-Profit Weekend_May 3rd, 4th and 5th

Here is a rewrite based on the fantastic email i received. Thanks again SkillShare for allowing me to practice AND get feedback. I'm an activist & volunteer. **I have a nice email list of people, some i have been communicating with for over a year. I've spoken to each and every one of them personally at one time or another. I will do personalized emails when i can figure out MAIL CHIMP so right now it's not personalized. Since the campaign it's been like pulling teeth to get ANY response from my emails and i want to figure out how to engage folks in issues and causes that i am really passionate about.

Hi __________:
Here's a great opportunity to give back to the community and do a day of service on Saturday, May 4th from 10am-2pm in Hollywood.
We will be sprucing up a small children's playground; raking and pulling weeds, laying a new outdoor floor and
Installing and planting vegetables and herbs in a garden box in the backyard.
May I invite you to participate? 
BIG SUNDAY WEEKEND (bigsunday.org)
May 3, 4 & 5
 
BIG SUNDAY's mission is to build community through community service. We believe that everyone has some way that they can help somebody else.
 
This particular project is:
PROTOTYPES 
on Saturday, 5/4, 10am-2pm
It's in Hollywood but the address is confidential for the protection of the women. It will be revealed with sign-up and you'll need to sign a non-disclosure when you get there
 
Prototypes is a great organization dedicated to improving the lives of women, children and communities affected by abuse, mental illness and domestic violence. They’d love some help planting a garden and sprucing up the childrens area at one of their residential treatment centers for Big Sunday Weekend. The garden will provide a great place for clients to unwind and will support the organization’s nutrition education program.
My mission is to have you come out and help us. We need 12 people, i need a core team of 2-3 that will help get the project moving; there's a little prep and help on the day with sign-ins, distribution of t-shirts and water, etc. Other volunteers will prepare a gardening box and spruce up the children's play area and backyard.
If this event fills up or you want another kind of challenge, you'll find over 400 events all over the state that need helping hands.
 
And please let me know if you can be part of the core team so we can set-up a schedule.
Appreciate your time.
Thank you.
