Dear Brides and Grooms:
On a daily basis, American Bridal Accessories is committed to making your special day a uniquely romantic and joyous occasion. My name is Shirley Tan, I'm the President and CEO of American Bridal Accessories. Just like many of you, I woke up this morning, August 30, 2005, turned on the television to watch the daily news and learned that the city of New Orleans under water.
With the terrible damage in the City of New Orleans caused by Hurricane Katrina, we pause from our work to give comfort to those whose lives have been affected by this disaster.
It is not our intention to capitalized on this horrible tragedy, rather we would like to make a bigger difference in our donation effort. We would like to help the victims and all those affected by Hurrican Katarina. Our company is committing to donating a minimum of $5,000. If sales exceed $50,000 over the next three months, the donation will increase. 10% of all sales
(not including shipping/handling)or (returns).
Non-profit organization includes groups like the "American Red Cross" with specific instructions that the funds must be used only for the "Hurricane Katrina Relief Effort" as their bylaws will allow for these request.
Each purchase you make will go in part to help rebuilt of our neighbors in the South. If you’re planning on purchasing wedding favors and bridal gifts, please consider making your purchases now so that we can contribute as much as possible for this worthy cause. Please help us get the message out by sharing our goal with your family and friends and help us make the required impact to make a difference.
