(in five sections)
Letter of Introduction
Attn: Fundraising Leader
A new decade – and a refreshing product!
Please consider my “Tiny Ticklers” Fun Fundraising Plan for any upcoming need, large or small.
I have enclosed a copy of the brochure a child would give to prospective buyer(s) – it gets torn in half to become a receipt and an order form.
I’ve also enclosed a sample ring of the Ticklers, and a copy of the proposed agreement.
I’ve been a publisher of wholesome reading materials since 2008. Please go online for more information about me and my publishing company, at www.davis-publishing.biz, or call me at (707) 664-8656.
This Plan is so local and simple it can be used for an individual group/room’s year-end party or an organization-wide effort.
Thank you for your consideration.
Diane H. Davis

Tiny Ticklers – for Enjoyment and Sharing!
What is a Tiny Tickler?
Tiny Ticklers are 8-page booklets (4 ¼ x 2 ¾ inches in size)
of original, inspiring stories or poems that will bring a smile
to your face for sure! They are fun and rewarding.
What can you do with a Tickler?
1. Enclose one in a card or gift.
2. Put one in someone’s lunch or on a pillow.
3. Let your child read one to you, or to grandma or grandpa.
4. Inspire your child to write a poem or a short story.
5. Read them, enjoy them, pass them on – or collect them.

Post Script from the publisher:
I stand behind any products and my "plan" - life should make you smile. I'm open to doing (class) room presentations (and readings) to help inspire the young people, and I will develop prizes if you believe that helps.
