With great power comes great responsibility. That is why I am fundraising to help children who’ve been through abuse or neglect have the powerful voice of a CASA volunteer, a true superhero to guide them through the toughest moments in their young lives. Today I am asking you to join forces with me by donating to help every child who needs one have their own superhero volunteer. Thank you for using your power for good!

Suggested Subject: Superheroes… Capes or no capes? I need to know what you think
Hi Super Friend,
In the Incredibles, Edna Mode insists that superheroes shouldn't wear capes, and lists several heroes whose capes ended their careers prematurely. But trying telling that to Batman or Superman… So, now I'm stuck! Cape or no cape?
Let me back up for a minute and explain my dilemma. On September 15th, I'll be transforming into [YOUR SUPERHERO] to run the CASA Superhero Run! This will be fun, but I'm doing it for a more important reason, one that I hope you will help me with.
CASA speaks up for children who’ve been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as advocates for them in the court system. When the state steps in to protect a child’s safety, a judge appoints a trained CASA volunteer to make independent and informed recommendations in the child’s best interest. CASA volunteers take the time to get to know all parts of a child's life. They ensure that each child's individual needs remain a priority in an over-burdened child welfare system.
I'm setting a goal to raise [$YOUR GOAL] to help support CASA in this cause. Will you help me be a superhero by donating today at [YOUR PERSONAL FUNDRAISING LINK]?
And let me know your thoughts on a cape…
P.S. You are also welcome to register to run and fundraise with me. You can join today at www.casasuperherorun.com.

Just like T’Challa says, we must work to be an example of how we, as brothers and sisters on this earth, should treat each other. Let’s take a lesson from Black Panther and combine superpowers at the 2019 CASA Superhero Run to help children who’ve been abused or neglected.
