Dear [Name of Recipient]:

It is the time of year that we begin to collect toys, both used and new, to distribute to the children in the orphanages of the [NAME of CITY]. 

Last year, thanks to you and others, we were able to give toys to 450 children ranging in age from three years to eight years. Most of these children had never possessed a toy of their own.

This year, we hope to collect enough toys to give to the children in the orphanages as well as to a group of children in a low-income area of the city. 

We would like to request from you a donation for any amount over $25 that we will spend on new toys. We also welcome used toys in good condition. 

They can be brought to our address, or we’ll gladly pick them up at your home at a time that is convenient for you. Kindly call me to arrange a time.

Included in this letter is an envelope stamped and address that you can use to send a check made out to the [Name of Organization]. You can also donate online with credit card on our website. We are registered with the IRS for tax-free donations. 

Thank you for your attention to our request. Your donation will make a child extremely happy this year. You can see photos of some of the children who have received toys on our website. Our web address is on the letterhead. 

I can be reached at any time at [555-123-4567] or at [name@email.com]. 

Sincerely,
