Thank you for including my letter to the Editor, titled "Doe Waging War," in your Sunday paper. I appreciate your willingness to publish a candid response to such a controversial issue.

Example Letter #3
The Doe Society would like to thank you for your generous help in locating volunteers to donate blood. Our need for donors has skyrocketed in recent months due to extensive help given to earthquake victims and an otherwise general shortage in the blood supply. To meet our ever increasing demand for blood donors, we must rely on radio stations like yours to reach the public. Thanks for helping us get this drive off to such a good start.
