“Dear Member,
One of our member is in dire need of the entire Bridgewater Church of the Brethren help to save his son who is critically ill and needs to be operated urgently. It will be appreciated if we all can join hands together as one family and save his son Richard. A fundraising campaign has been created and we are relying on the entire family to help him raise the funds needed. Below is the fundraising campaign, thank you for your support in advance. No amount is too small and any amount donated out of the kindness of your heart will be highly appreciated.”
