A $10,000 Matching Fund for YOU!!!

WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH GETS GOING.
TOUGH: THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE.

A $10,000 Matching Fund

Alex New of NY, NY, an 80-20 Life Member, pledged that fund to
match dues of members joining from today on. If 200 of you will each
pay $50 to become family members, the sum is $10K, the full amount of the
matching fund. That means 400 additional members and $20,000
will be added to 80-20. That'll help keep 80-20 alive and fighting
for you. The red line below will shoot above the green line again!

Other Good News, Thanks to YOU

(a) Burst of Support: In the 3 days since 80-20 reluctantly announced that
"80-20 Is Dying", we got 73 more members. In addition, Alex
New pledged the $10K matching fund.

(b) Record Membership: A lot of people assumed that 80-20 is dying
because it has member ship problem. Not quite! Yhe Asian Am.
community has shown the GREATEST support for 80-20
EVER.


Thanks to YOU, 80-20 has just broken its highest membership record
of 2150 set in 2005 in a 12 month effort. This year, in 7 months, 80-20
has broken that record.

However, 80-20 Is Still Dying

80-20's problems are

(1) Its aging leadership and its failure to find replacements for the
retiring leaders, and

(2) Its failure to overcome the stubborn POLITICAL APATHY of our
community.

Hence, 80-20's Board has decided on a "fish or cut bait" gamble to either
double its membership or admit defeat, fold shop and let whatever
consequence fall where it may. "80-20 Is Dying (2)" will describe our
agonizing choices. 80-20 will really need YOUR help to find new
qualified leaders. It'll
appear in your inbox soon.
