reader benefit helps persuade the reader to donate her time: helping the community, food and music

ANNUAL KAILUA BEACH CLEAN-UP AND MUSIC BASH A Sunday at the beach – hot dogs, Spam musubis, cold drinks, good music and new friends. And you can be a part of it all! Please join the fun on Sunday, May 5, 20xx for the annual Kailua Beach Clean-Up. If you provide the muscle power, the Kailua Beautification Council will provide the trash bags and gloves, the food and the music. As a member of the Kailua community, you are probably aware of how much trash can accumulate on the beaches over the course of a year. Cigarette butts, empty suntan lotion bottles, broken rubber slippers. That’s not what a neighborhood beach should be littered with. Last year’s industrious volunteers collected over 200 bags of junk. To help sustain all the hardworking volunteers, hot dogs, Spam musubis and cold drinks will be served after the clean up. Music will be provided by popular local bands ―Aa Beach Bums‖ and ―Hana Hou." Please call me at 555-1234 to sign up as a volunteer. It’ll be fun!
