Donations: EarthRights International 10th Anniversary Gala

My friend Rachel (yes she's in some of the pictures, no I won't tell you which ones), interned for EarthRights International this summer, and they are looking for donations for their silent auction. I have posted the letter their Major Gifts Coordinator, Dan Fatton, has sent out:

Dear Friends,

We hope you will consider supporting the EarthRights International 10th Anniversary Gala. The event will be held on Friday, October 21, 2005, at the WVSA Arts Connection from 7 pm to 11 pm. To highlight this event, we will be celebrating our recent victory in a major human rights lawsuit Doe vs. Unocal.

We will be holding a silent auction to help raise additional funds for our supported programs. Please consider donating an item or a basket to support our event. You will be recognized in our ad journal for your donation. Our attendees are an ideal demographic; wealthy, progressive thinking citizens tend to positively associate with companies that they perceive as supporting causes similar to their own.

Your participation will help EarthRights International continue to combine the power of law and the power of people in defense of human rights and the environment. ERI is focused on grassroots education and training that helps to promote peace, justice and nonviolence. In the past year alone, we trained more than thirty-five activists about their rights under international law as well as educating them on non-violent solutions to local problems. As we celebrate our tenth anniversary, we also mark an important victory in our legal battle to hold Unocal accountable for their complicity in human rights and environmental abuses. As we commemorate our various successes to date, please join us by donating to our silent auction or attending the event.

If you have any questions, please contact me at EarthRights International at 202-466-5188 ext. 106 or HYPERLINK ""

Thank you for your consideration.

Dan Fatton
Major Gifts Coordinator
