I have a favor to ask of each of you today. Can you spare up to half an hour to help some friends of mine? Irene's parents have been on my "short list" of friends longer than she's been alive, though we see each other rarely due to geography.
I had the pleasure of "meeting" Irene anew last summer, and was amazed at her clear-eyed view of our world at the ripe old age of 22. I know this class and this survey are important topics in her quest to understand.
Her survey took me 15 minutes to complete. She needs hundreds of participants for her project. Would you mind helping her out as a favor to me? Her email follows.
Hello, My name is Irene Carlson and I am currently working on my senior research project in psychology at Knox College. I am studying personality factors and religious and spiritual beliefs. I am asking for volunteers age 18 and older to anonymously complete two surveys. Both are meant to be answered quickly and should take a total of 20-30 minutes.
Your responses are an integral part of my research and I greatly appreciate your help! You will also have the option of being entered into a drawing to win one of seven cash prizes valued at $20-$50 each.
By clicking the link below, you will be directed to the first survey.
Since I need a large number of responses, it would be very helpful if you would forward this email to people you know age 18 and older. Surveys need to be completed by February 22, 2012. Once again, I am very grateful for your participation! If you would like to know the results of my study, send me an email and I will notify you as soon as it is completed.
All my thanks,
