Dear Friends and Family –

Quinn and Connor Crinigan have been students of Karate since 2009. They are currently Purple Belts and are excelling in their training. Recently, their instructors have sought them out to join one of their regional tournament teams. This team is the first step toward being groomed for larger national tournaments. The boys are very interested in participating. Unfortunately, with a single income, the fees associated (approx. $3,000) are not in our budget. How could we tell these young men,”No?” We have to find a solution. We need help. Thus, we write to you today.

It occurred to us that everyone loves fundraisers, but only a portion of those proceeds actually directly help the organization. Your child rarely, if ever, actually benefits directly from the funds raised. What's more, is that you never actually know how much was raised or where those funds went. So, we thought that maybe we should do our own fundraiser for Quinn and Connor. You, as a sponsor, finally get to see the benefits in action! Furthermore, we will be completely transparent in our efforts, so you can have confidence knowing the donations go directly to Quinn and Connor.

Please note that "Team Crinigan - Karate Kids" is a NON-PROFIT entity. Your sponsorship funds go directly to expenses related to Tournament Training and Events ONLY. This DOES NOT go to standard belt prep classes or personal expenses. Tournament Training and Event expenses include (but are not limited to): Tournament Training Classes, Equipment (chest protectors), Tournament Participant Registration Fees, Tournament Spectator Fees, Tournament Gee's (uniform) and Travel Expenses. Balance sheets willl be stored in the "Files" section on the Facebook page, updated and balanced monthly. Any funds not used for the 2013 Tournament Season will be returned to sponsors based on percentages donated. As a sponsor of Team Crinigan you will NOT be solicited for any other fundraising events (such as school fundraisers). 100% of your donation goes DIRECTLY and ONLY to Tournament Related Expenses. Unlike school fundraisers where only a portion goes to the school, all your funds are working JUST as hard as Connor and Quinn. Connor and Quinn KNOW who their sponsors are and KNOW how fortunate they are to have you! Without you, their participation may not be possible. THANK YOU!!!!!

Here's what you get when you sponsor Quinn and Connor:
1) Any donation gets you access to the closed Facebook Group "Team Crinigan - Karate Kids". You will have real-time access to training results, tournament results, photo's, and videos and hear directly from the boys on their adventures. You can post your prayers and congratulations to the boys and know that they know you are cheering them on, EVEN IF you are not there in person!
2) Donations of $35 - $49 will receive a hard copy photo of Quinn and Connor participating in their training and/or tournaments as well as personal handwritten notes from Quinn and Connor. You also have access to "Team Crinigan - Karate Kids" Facebook Group.
3) Donations of $50 - $99 will receive a free tournament spectator ticket to an event of your choice. You also have access to "Team Crinigan – Karate Kids" Facebook Group and will receive hard copy photo's and notes from the boys.
4) Donations of $100 will receive all that is mentioned in 1 - 3, as well as a sponsor t-shirt designed by Quinn and Connor.
5) Donations of more than $100 will receive all that is mentioned in 1 - 4, but will also receive an additional tournament ticket.
* Every additional $25 donated above $100 will entitle the sponsor to additional tournament spectator tickets.
** Additional t-shirts may be purchased if you would like to order them. Cost T.B.D.
*** Please note that Photo's and T-shirts will not be immediately available. T-shirts will need to be ordered based on chosen size. Photo's will be sent after the complete season in 2013 has closed.

Giving is easy, just follow the "Team Crinigan - Karate Kids" link to FundRazr and select the "Give" icon. You will then be directed to PayPal, where you can give even if you do not have a PayPal account. Just select "pay as guest". This is secure and easy.

Thank you for any donation. Your sponsorship truly makes a dream come true, making a difference in the lives of Quinn and Connor!

Thank you!

With sincere thanks and appreciation,
Bill and Amanda Crinigan
