"I heard Donna Fawcett sing while staying at the Write!Canada conference in Guelph, Ontario. She has a lovely voice that soothes and touches the heart when she sings. When she sings it feels as if God is right there, singing to you of his love, his peace and his light that dispels the darkness. Donna's love of God is shown within her songs and moves you to want a closer walk with him." Maureen E. Kowal email@example.com Author of 2 Grade One Vowel Books The Candy Map and The Loud Chime

As a participant in ministry it is necessary to provide the practical information needed in order to make that ministry possible. Below you will find what is referred to as a Letter of Understanding. This allows you to partner with Donna in preparing the best ministry event possible for your church. Please feel free to copy this letter, fill it out and send it to Donna at firstname.lastname@example.org
Letter of Understanding
Church or Organization requesting Donna Fawcett's speaking services:
Dates for speaking engagement:
Type of Event:
Donna Fawcett's schedule for the event:
Other services Donna Fawcett will provide:
Topic(s) that Donna Fawcett will be speaking on:
Fees: For a weekend event consisting of no more than four speaking sessions the organization will pay $500.00. For a single session the organization will pay $200.00. Expenses will be in addition to the speaker fee at $0.40 per km for the first 200 km and $0.10 thereafter. Accommodations and meals, if needed, will also be payed by the organization.
Book Table: Donna Fawcett will be provided with a table at least six feet long with one table cloth. This will be used as a book table, which will be placed in a prominent position, such as the lounge. One volunteer will help Donna Fawcett man the table so that she is free to talk to participants if needed. The church will ask the local bookstore not to bring any of Donna Fawcett's books to the event so that Donna Fawcett is the sole provider of her own work.
Planning the Event: The organization agrees to contact Donna Fawcett if any of the above is not acceptable, or if the schedule changes.
Recording the Event: The organization may record the event if it desires, but Donna Fawcett will own the rights to the recording and will be provided with one copy after the event. If the organization is going to make this available to all attendees, the fee will be $1.00 per person for the rights to each talk. The organization may then sellf the recordings, for whatever price they wish, to the attendees, but if it wants to make the recordings available more widely, an additional contract will have to be made between Donna Fawcett and the organization.
