Ms. Barbara Stoop
Volunteer Manager
534 Brook Road
Arlington, VT 54322


Dear Ms. Stoop:

I am interested in obtaining a Volunteer position at WWF. I hear that there are several openings in this regard and would like to offer my services to work for a beneficial cause. I am very enthusiastic about saving our planet why whatever little I can contribute and I am confident that I have much talent to contribute to this cause.

I love my planet and feel affection for all that nature has bestowed upon us. Since I was a toddler, I have been extremely curious about both plant and animal life. Saving little kittens from distressful situations and planting trees was all I could think about as I grew older. My natural love for all life on Earth and the need to sustain it effectively makes me want to work in this field all my life. I am confident that I possess the physical dexterity that is needed in most positions of this nature.

I am thrilled at the prospect of joining your organization as a volunteer and to truly make a contribution. I will call your office to ask for an interview soon and will be available at (100) 199-1001 if you need to contact me.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
