"Hi Karon,

We are interested in supporting financially and were wondering if you could send me more details on the types of chairs you are looking for.  Even links to the types of chairs from a vendor's website would be great. I'd like to see what kind of pricing our vendors will give us to see if we can get you a better deal, in addition to financial support.
