Correct me if I'm mistaken...

This is a real business letter I received at work the other day. I swear I had to re-read it at least three times to understand what the heck was going on. Turns out this hospital won't donate money to a volunteer because they only donate to "not for profit organizations", commonly known as "non-profit organizations". And ILP (the company I work for) is a non-profit organization. Actually, maybe I am wrong and the two are different? Please let me know.

I like the last sentence. Peter must've said, "Emphasize that we donate to not for profit organizations ONLY, not anything else. Thank you now go back to financing in braille."

Did you notice how this letter can be personalized, right at the top? So sweet of NBNHD.

You should send a follow up letter.... "Give me the money!!!!! Give it!!!!"

Got plans for the weekend after this one? You should hang out with me, Rachel & the poor saps bringing that baby to town! Seriously, I'd love to see you.
