Dear beloved friends of Melanie,


In celebration of our dear friend's birthday, coming up on July 2, 2014, we have organized a small campaign to get Mel a NEW PHONE!

You may live close by or across the other side of the world, you may be a student or living the high life… but what we do have in common is we’ve enjoyed and been touched by Melanie's friendship and generosity. We’d love to invite you to help celebrate her transition to the next decade.

You may be thinking, “what does her current phone and a big birthday celebration have do to with me?” Or you also may be thinking, “I am glad the person writing this is not a copy writer, can you just get to the point?". We want to get Mel a new phone to ensure that her voice is heard! Right now, her phone dies every 2 hours, the screen is cracked, and her internet is wack. Mel spends a lot of time writing emails on her phone, working on online campaigns, and texting all of your beautiful faces. Let's help make it a whole lot easier on Mel and buy her a new phone. We would love for you to be part of celebrating her very special birthday no matter where in the world you live.


You can do this by:

1. Sending us a “happy birthday Mel” video or photo (we will either upload videos/pictures to the new phone or integrate and share them with Mel in an email so that she can have the files); Please drop files here. If for any reason you are unable to access the link, send me an email instead.

AND

2. Contributing to a campaign to buy her an iPhone (she has been stuck with this crazy slow phone that needs to recharge every 2 hours and doesn’t have proper internet) Our goal is $560, the cost of an unlocked iPhone 5. Any amount over our goal will be donated to All Out; so donate what you wish!


PLEASE KEEP THIS A SECRET AND DO NOT TELL MELANIE!

BUY MEL AN IPHONE
What is this? The iPhone is the basic model 5C. By when? As her birthday is July 2nd, please contribute ASAP. We will try to purchase the phone by her birthday, but we may have to give it to her belatedly depending on donations. With the phone, we will include all of the names of those who contributed unless otherwise specified.

How and how much? Using this website. $30 for her 30th would be fantastic. Donating more or less is also very welcome and the rest will go to Allout.org. "All Out is mobilizing millions of people to build a world where no person will have to sacrifice their family or freedom, safety or dignity, because of who they are or who they love."


HAPPY BIRTHDAY VIDEO
Send us a “happy birthday Mel” video or photo (we will either upload videos/pictures to the new phone or integrate and share them with Mel in an email so that she can have the files); Please drop files here.


Mel spends so much time and money helping others. We know Mel is so often grateful for the kindness and support of all her friends, and it’s a wonderful opportunity and excuse to surprise her during a very special birthday.
