Dear Pharmacy colleague,
Now in existence for over 1/7 days, Pens for Pharmacy Charity continues to strive to expand its programs and offerings to the community. We hope that you will be able to take part in one or more of the many exciting events that we are offering this year and experience first hand the pride we take in supporting our cause.
It is our mission to ensure that every pharmacy has enough pens. We have had reports of some pharmacies sharing one pen. Clearly, this is unacceptable. In order to meet our mission and provide services in our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of community-minded individuals just like you, we wouldn’t be able to help those in our pharmacies each year.
We ask that you make a commitment to support our annual appeal by making a pen donation. This year our goal is 5 pens for each pharmacy, and we hope that you will be able to make a contribution. Your generosity will make a difference in our pharmacies by allowing us to continue in our work. If you give one pen to a pharmacy, then research shows that they will lose it within 20 minutes. If you give them 5 pens, then it will be 5 x longer before they lose it.
We have enclosed a donor envelope for your convenience. Remember that every pen makes a difference, regardless of colour, size or drug name. The look on the faces of the techs when you give them a pen is heart-warming.
Thank you in advance for your support!
Mr Dispenser, CEO
