Gratefully Acknowledging a $156,240.00 BEQUEST from
Hao Hoang, Los Angeles, CA
Hao Hoang was a typical immigrant success story. He and his family immigrated to the U.S. when he was a teenager. At the time he spoke very little English. But within a few years after arriving in the U.S., he graduated from high school with high honors and was accepted to the Rhode Island School of Design, to become part of the first generation of his family to attend college.
Professionally, Hao was an accomplished architect. In addition, he also founded two companies – Buzzcraze, a developer of risk management processes, and Seirios Communications, LLC, a feature-film production company.
Outside of his busy work life, Hao also set aside time to volunteer and give back to his community. He led inner-city youth in Los Angeles on hikes; campaigned for environmental initiatives with the Sierra Club; and mentored LA-area applicants to the Rhode Island School of Design.
Giving back was part of Hao’s DNA. Though he came from a modest background, he felt it was important to share the fruit of his labor and donate some of what he earned to the 80-20 Educational Foundation, to further equal opportunity in the workplace and equal justice for Asian Americans.
In addition to memorializing Hao Hoang above, 80-20 Educational Education also honors him by establishing a memorial for him, which will be on permanent display at EF's acknowledgment page for "Our Heroes & Heroines".
Charity Begins At Home and Federal Estate Tax Law
There are plenty of rich folks in our community. Many tend to give millions of dollars to non-AsAm organizations only. 80-20 invites the best and brightest of our rich folks to be heroes or heroines to buck that ugly trendand show trust in our own people. Harvard has consistently rated AsAms as having worse personality than all other races. Could it be that Harvard has dealt with too many rich AsAms who don't trust their own people and don't recognize the universally accepted value of "Charity Begins At Home"?
How do you think the Jewish organizations built up their endowment funds, worth almost $100 million dollars? Bequests play an important role.
For anyone with an estate worth more than $11.58 million, a bequest to 80-20 Educational Foundation can be used to to offset the need to pay federal estate tax. For details, please consult your lawyers and accountants, who are welcome to call EF for related info.
The Demand for Sen. Blackburn to Apologize Intensifies
About 500 to 1,000 AsAms called/faxed/emailed Blackburn's D.C. office to condemn hertweet: "China has a 5000 year history of cheating and stealing. Some things will never change..." They left their phone and fax numbers and their personal email addresses with Blackburn's office. They understand that in a democracy a senator is but a public servant.
They sent such powerful & eloquent messages to her. Here is an example:
I and my friends of various ethnicities, including white, brown and black are outraged by your irresponsible and dishonest tweet. Where did you got this idea from? It is unbelievable this came from an educated person like you are. Please respect the fact and withdraw your insulting tweet immediately to reduce the damage you've made to yourself and to show the people in the states and elsewhere that there is still a right or wrong sense in your judgement. Thank you for your prompt action. Respectfully, David"
Blackburn is not budging thus far. We are therefore compelled to begin informing her TN constituents about her UNsenatorial, UNtruthful, & UN-American statement and behavior against the ancestry of her fellow Americans. We'll buying full-page newspaper and digital ads in TN.
DONATE! Our project to establish a world-class political organization to protect ourselves, especially when there are politicians like Sen. Blackburn around, has raised $750,000 in 4 weeks. YOUR generosity can send us over the $1 million mark by year's end. That'll make Blackburn sit up & notice. :-)
