Mr. Gray

I came across your website while searching for sample Thank-You notes. I have a large list of businesses and people to thank for their generous contributions of money or time. Can you refer me to a site that may have samples I can use or do you have any samples or example thank-you letters? Thanks in advance.

Hello Christy,

Don't make what's simple into something hard.

Get some simple stationery or thank-you note cards and write about the appreciation that you feel. Address the envelope and write the note in your own handwriting. Use a real stamp.

For example: "Thanks so much for your referral. I really appreciate your confidence in me, and I'll do my best to help your friend get the care he's looking for."

A suggested reference is Tom Hopkins' book, How To Master The Art of Selling.

When you can afford it, send a thank-you gift with the card, especially for a referral. I've sent gift certificates for restaurants and movies and play tickets. Use your imagination.

And Have Fun!
