BENEFITING: CATALYST FOUNDATION

EVENT DATE: Aug 30, 2013

Lan Doan

THE STORY:

Did you know that Warren Buffet and I share the same birthday (August 30)?  This Friday he will reach 83, and I will turn 26.  Is my life going downhill from here???  I really, really hope it will not!!!

Regardless, while I would love to throw a joint party with Mr. Buffett for this special dayI think it will be even more fun and meaningful for me if you could help me contribute to either (or both) of the two charities below:

One is Catalyst Foundation (http://www.catalystfoundation.org/), I volunteered at several of their summer camps for Vietnamese adopted children.  There I met the loveliest kids and made amazing new friends who share the passion of bringing a better life to Vietnamese children.  I love that the organization realizes the children’s need for both material and cultural abundance.  Oh and did I say that the kids there are the best???

The other one is Vietseed (http://www.vietseed.org/).  This new organization’s mission aligns with my belief in the power of education to free people from their social and economic constraints. My late grandfather also spent the last years of his life directing a similar organization in his local community, which I think is the coolest way to retire!

To donate to Vietseed, please visit this page

(Crowdrise doesn't support 2 charities in one fundraiser)

With that said, I wouldn’t mind if you still want to buy me drinks/dinner/gifts etc. after making your donation.  In the end, it’s the thought that counts ;-)

P/S: It seems that Mr.Buffett had the same idea for his bday last year :D
