Hello friend and family.
I am writing to you to ask you for your support. Some of you I have not talked to you for years, others just at holiday gatherings. You may or may not know that I moved to Boston in winter of 2011, but still work in the family business of real estate rental. In Manchester, NH, My dad Ming and mom Li are starting to think about retirement and we are slowly selling off our downtown apartments that is designed to be affordable for low-income family.
My goal is to have a career change to experience different side of life. I have been a business owner worrying about all aspect of it since 2004, I want to try my hand on a regular job where the worrying stops at 5pm. I have always heard about the fabled career where every morning it does not feel like I am going to work and every hour passes by so fast because it is fueling the passion for the mission of the company.
Ok, now back to reality, I do want to make a difference in the world, and that is why I am joining StartingBloc. It’s an organization that trains people in social entrepreneurship. StartingBloc Fellowship begins with the Institute for Social Innovation.
The Institute is a five-day transformative experience during which young leaders learn to increase their impact, exponentially. The Institute curriculum includes an innovative case-study competition and sessions with industry leaders.
The 2013 New York Institute will take place June 6 - 10, 2013. The cost is $1,000 plus living expense. I am trying to raise just $1,000. Every little helps, and your contribution will help my journey in trying to make our world a better place.
The fundraiser stops March 14 and donation can be made at http://www.crowdrise.com/StartingBlocNY13/fundraiser/hsiuchang
