Dear Sir,

Throughout its century-old history, our company has always been at the forefront of serving the community in which we do business. I know one such perfect opportunity to pay back to the community. (Introduction.)

I live in the downtown area of Ottawa and I recently came across a group of Syrian refugees trying to settle down in the city. Some of the adults in this group are doctors, engineers, and teachers. However, they are in a new country and lack the means to support their families. (Describe the group.)

Since our company is the largest real estate developer in this city, I think we can help these people lease some of our property at negligible lease so that they can start small businesses. Many of these individuals are qualified to work as professionals in Canada. All they need is some economic support to become responsible citizens of the country. (Kind of help.)

This will be beneficial to the group in several respects. Not only will it make them financially independent members of the community but also will make the Ottawa community diverse. In fact, the diversity of culture has been the biggest strength of our country and this is a perfect opportunity to maintain it. (benefit to the group and community.)

I look forward to your decision.

Yours sincerely,
