[From Vietnam] "Xin chao" m…
[From Vietnam]

"Xin chao" my much-appreciated backers - mom, dad, friends, and everyone who has trusted me,

On my 23rd birthday, March 27th 2015, I set out a goal for myself to mobilize those around me to help a disadvantaged student to afford college in Vietnam. This is the first time I raised fund to do good for others and I was filled with gratitude, surprise, and pride. I am once again reminded of how lucky I am to receive boundless support from my family and loved ones. I was in awe to be backed by you, to whom I only talked a few times in college, and by you, who don't even know me personally. It tells me that what I do aligns with what you believe in and with the kind of good you want to create for the community.

I am more than happy to announce that I reached 93% of my goal after 1 month, raising over $1500 via Crowdrise and Paypal to help a disadvantaged youth attend college in Vietnam. This is by all means not a failure but a humble move toward pushing for the better and motivating each other to share with what we have.

I have been in touch with the founder of VietSeed Organization, Vu Van, to learn that the scholarship selection process will be completed in September. It is when college starts in Vietnam and we will know which student will receive scholarships and get matched with a donor. I don't consider myself a donor and would rather take this as an opportunity to make a new friend. A friend that will help me understand different viewpoints and teach me about college in Vietnam :)

That said I promise to be back and keep you posted about the progress of your gift :) I am excited that my future friend already has over 50 new friends and supporters across the globe through this project!

Cheers from Hanoi in these summer days :) All the best to what you set your eyes and your heart on.
