A few months ago, the 1st $250,000 donor, a very generous person, issued a challenge. He said to 80-20, "Get 3 more $250,000 donors and my money will come in." The 2nd donation has come in!
Will ALL OF YOU please help find 2 more $250k donors? The real worth of finding them to SELF shall be $750,000! 80-20, without any doubt the bravest and the most effective fighter for the 17 million Asian Ams, will then likely be able to live on.
The 2nd $250,000 donation came from a couple who wished to remain anonymous. Wow! What role models. They said,
"We have discussed among ourselves that even though we are not the super rich, we can afford to donate and match the $250,000 challenge in addition to our pledge of $xxxx per year to keep 80-20 organization going.
We have been impressed by the success and direction that 80-20 is going. We hope that our donation will sustain your effort and make changes in the US for generations of Asian American to achieve the level playing field."
They added, "We would rather do so anonymously. We believe in our future generations and have devoted all our effort in the past 24 years in improving their odds through the education programs we embraced. We are not educators by training but have become one through our contact with the children who come through our Kumon program."
On behalf of members of the Boards of 80-20 Initiative and Board of Donors, I SALUTE this great couple. Please click here to see that SELF already has more than $1 million received, and not a single penny spent. We also hope that the per yr for 5 yrs figure will quickly go beyond half a million dollars.
We also gratefully acknowledge a separate $10,371 donation from Woo's Foundation in Newark, DE.
Have you done YOUR SHARE for your and our children?
