Dear Friends and Family,

{create a personalized greeting}

I wanted to share with you an opportunity to get involved with an organization I have been personally supporting for many years, Development in Gardening (DIG).

DIG focuses on developing regenerative gardens to improve the nutrition and livelihoods of some of the world’s most uniquely vulnerable people. Everything they do is rooted in food and community, and I believe it’s more important than ever to support organizations committed to restoring the health of our bodies, communities, and the planet.

On Sunday October 24th, DIG is premiering their Cocktails and Castoffs AT HOME event. I’m hosting a virtual fundraising table to support their work and would love for you to join me. Here’s a link to my “table” {insert fundraising page link}.

As my guest, there is no fee to attend, but if you’d like to support my fundraising efforts, I am matching the first {$$$} raised towards my goal of {$$$$}.  What’s even more exciting is that once I raise $1,000 towards my personal campaign, an anonymous DIG supporter will give an extra match dollar for dollar! 

Every little bit counts!

An extra special element of this event is that anyone who donates $500 or more before Oct. 10th will receive an invitation to DIG’s VIP pre-party and a Sweet Harvest Party Box delivered to them the mail. Boxes are filled with  cocktails, party snacks, recipes and more, all of which have been specially designed for DIG by celebrated chefs.  You can read more about the boxes and the participating chefs on DIG’s event page here.

So there you have it.  Donate today to get your gift matched. Join me on Oct. 24th for a special evening rooted in joy and community, and consider giving $500 or more before Oct 10th to experience all the flavors the event has to offer. Trust me, Tiffanie’s cocktails are not to be missed! 

Thank you for considering this ask. I’m happy to share more with you about DIG or this event anytime,

{your name}
