It should be noted that American money goes much further in these other parts of the world. For example, $1.00 USD can spend like $45.00 in rural Vietnam or India. So even a small donation truly can make a significant difference in people’s lives. The dream is to offer hope to forgotten orphanages and people in tiny villages that desperately need someone’s caring and compassion. It is what I have always wanted “Jim’s Projects” to be all about.
Having friends and future co-workers who grew up in these parts of the world is very helpful in many ways too. Through them we can reach out to the local communities in ways I could never do on my own. They know the culture, the customs, and what the people and children need most. And they know it in a way that a “visiting American” never could. This will allow each and every dollar of your donations to go where it is needed most! Not a penny will be wasted. We have no fancy offices or “PR firms” using up the money. It is just me and my friends working together to bring help and comfort to those in greatest need.
Please feel free to copy/paste this letter, and forward it anywhere you think could help us achieve our goals! That includes discussion boards, your friends and contacts, Facebook “walls”, Twitter “tweets”, or anywhere else your imagination may lead you. Using the link http://onedollarcanchangetheworld.webs.com will make it easier to pass along this information, if you wish to help us with that. And if you have any other helpful suggestions on ways to spread the word, please let me know that too. My personal e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. “Viral” can bring miraculous things into this internet-connected world! Let’s use that amazing power together.
$1.00, one time. That’s all I ask of anyone. Anything beyond that is deeply appreciated too, needless to say. But one dollar, one time, will do it. I wish our “good intentions” alone were enough to make all of this happen. But in this world, as we all know, you can’t even get a paper-clip without the money to pay for it. It is the same with all you read about here. If, however, with your kind help, we can generate enough funding to get these projects underway, I will be posting regular updates, photos, videos, and a “daily blog” on my website so you all can be a part of this “adventure” right along with us! I want everyone to enjoy our successes, as they happen, each and every day. If enough of you will help, no matter how small the amount, all of this can and will be accomplished. The long wait will be over. We can finally get all of these projects started and growing stronger throughout the remainder 2012 and into the coming years.
So, once again, your $1.00 can repair a leaky roof on an orphanage in Vietnam. It can bring basic medical care and school supplies to children in a small village in Kazakhstan. It can bring something as simple as giving the comfort of a new teddy bear to a lonely little girl or boy who needs to feel they matter to someone too! That “someone” can be you. The cost of ONE CAN OF COKE coming from enough people, can make all of this happen. I hope it will seem worthwhile to you as well. I thank you in advance for any help you can send our way. Never think it's too small an amount to donate. Because I assure you… it’s not. TOGETHER, we truly CAN “Change the World.” Let’s finally get this “dream” started. You can contribute directly through Paypal by going to the "Donations" page of this website.
And please always remember… every penny counts!
