Dear Family and Friends,
As most of you know, I have been afflicted with Rosacea for some time. Rosacea is a facial disorder that affects over 45 million people in varying degrees of severity. Rosacea is often characterized by facial redness, flushing, burning pain, acne and even facial disfigurement. In some severe cases, the skin is hot to the touch and the person experiences burning or aching pain that can at times be completely disabling.
There is a non-profit organization, The Rosacea Research and Development Institute (RRDi), which is dedicated to increasing awareness, educating people and, most importantly, funding research for a treatment or cure for Rosacea hence the reason for my letter.
I am hoping as you determine how to distribute your charitable dollars this year, that you will consider making a donation to RRDi. RRDi''s goal is to initiate dedicated research projects into the causes and subsequent treatments of Rosacea. You can help by making a donation directly to RRDi. Any amount would be greatly appreciated. No gift is too small.
To make a donation, either send it directly to:
Rosacea Research & Development Institute
P.O. Box 858
Centre, AL 35960
Or donate online at:
Please consider making your donation in support of [Your name]. If you wish to remain anonymous please include this when you donate.
I would like to thank you in advance for your generosity. Your kindness will help the RRDi in its quest to cure this psychologically debilitating and frustrating illness.
