Mike and I are flying out of town tonight so I would like to send out this email one day earlier. So far we have $130 dollars committed to keep our meetup group going. What a success!!! Thank you everyone, who took the initiative to contribute...and it was indeed touching to read some of the emails: Bob as a new member is willing to give it a try, two couples - Peter and Teresa, Tom and Amy although use one account, are willing to contribute $10. There are also plenty of members willing to contribute more than $5 dollars. Anyway since we have exceeded $72, lets just keep it $5 at this time :) But thank you for your quick response and we really proved that this group (especially Eric) has provided great value for all of us and its worthwhile to keep it going.
I would also like to send out the following link, Jennifer is running 26.2K in December for the cause of fighting blood cancers, please visit her site to support this good cause:
For anyone who's interested in taking the Chinese language courses, please take a moment to visit the Confucius Institute website, if you have any questions, Guanglin Dai, our assistant organizer, who's the director of the Confucius Institute at NCSU, will be able to help you out. Check out this great option for learning Chinese, it is very cost effective.
And we are working on getting Pat's son-in-law Chi involved in this group, Chi is from HK.
Thank you Sue, for taking up the important role as the organizer! Sue has asked me to continue the collection process for the contribution. So next week, Mike will set up a goolge checkout payment method for members who prefer to contribute online. But it will always be better if you could give me the cash at future meetups- no fees will be taken by any third party.
Here are the members who has committed to contribute:
|Anjing Wang |
|Eric and LiHua
|Peter Wright (x2)
|Shi Yu Meng (Mike)|
|Tom O'Connor (x2)
For members who haven't had a chance to email me, it's never too late - one for all, all for one!
