Letter is from Robbie Shaw, not “The Office of the President & CEO.”Short opening sentence. Short paragraphs.Seven “yous” in the first three paragraphs.
The writer introduces a technical term, defines it, and explains it (unlike the writer of the Ottawa Hospital letter, who introduces “Oncolytic JX-594” in the Johnston Box but does not explain it.Variable copy personalizes the ask and shows that the hospital knows this donor in particular.
