I got a good giggle out of this:

Subject: ABC seeks famlies who practice voluntarily simple lifestyles!

Dear Sir or Madam,

I'm a Casting Producer with ABC Television and we're looking to feature 
families who live by the "voluntary simplicity" philosophy - families who feel 
that all of the excess technology and "stuff" is unnecessary - families who 
keep it simple and don't get involved with the craziness of the outside world. 
We seek that very unique, distinct, fascinating approach to life - a philosophy 
that perhaps others might not have considered...a philosophy that other 
families could benefit from! I know that your community encompasses the ideals 
we're looking for - those great folks that spend true quality time with each 
other and don't rely on tv, video games, or other electronics to entertain 
their children 24/7. I feel that you could be a great example for other 
families and would love to speak with anyone outspoken, outgoing, and 
passionate about their beliefs and their lifestyle.

We're currently casting for ABC's hit family show, 'Wife Swap!' Please don't be 
confused by the title - "Wife Swap" is a family show on ABC primetime. The 
premise is simple: two moms from two very different families get the 
opportunity to swap lives (but not bedrooms - everyone has their own!) for a 
week to experience what it's like to live a different lifestyle - and to see 
what they can teach each other about their own! In this case we're looking to 
feature families who feel that happiness doesn't revolve around having the 
latest gadget, fastest car, or the biggest bank account. I would greatly 
appreciate you forwarding my information on to any of your friends, neighbors, 
colleagues, and family members who might be interested in sharing their lives 
with us for a week!

All featured families will receive a $20,000 financial honorarium as a 
thank-you for their time - and $1000 goes to anyone who refers a family that 
makes it on the show! We are looking for two parent families with children 
(ages 5 and older) who are ready for adventure! I appreciate your assistance in 
reaching out to these great families and look forward to hearing from you soon!
