What did Ralph have to offer?

Here in Seattle where I live, I've seen how the Covid-19 pandemic has added to the food insecurity problem for many households, particularly in light of school closures. While I've given to local food banks, I'd also like to use my skills to help other communities around the country, because this is a national crisis. I was especially taken aback by the 80% food insecurity figure among Baltimore County children. BHP is an essential community partner in addressing this crisis, and I'd be honored to help the organization expand its reach at this critical time. Direct mail writing has been an integral part of my career, both in the nonprofit and for-profit worlds. Direct mail, when done right, remains one of the most compelling ways to tell a story and motivate action. In addition to having written direct mail packages for several major healthcare organizations, I have written fundraising appeals for nonprofit organizations including Helen Keller International, Career Gear, and the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation. I am also the author of a book on sales writing, published by McGraw-Hill.
