"As you know, the last TWO campaigns resulted in just over $400k in pledges each. Today Pastor announced that we are now over the $1M mark with pledges still coming in. The previous campaign was with the "help" of [another well-known firm]. This campaign would NOT have had the success that it has and continues to have without your dedicated and unfaltering effort. You make a difference in the world, John. We're fortunate to be a part of that difference."
