You can use the attached template press release to publicly announce the results of your hard work on the Purple Purse Challenge.

Thank you all for making this first-ever Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge a fantastic success. We are absolutely in awe of all that you were able to accomplish.

Best wishes,
