See how THE BEST OF THE BEST have responded to 80-20's appeal for help to increase its membership.

Help poured in. A father recruited his son.; a daughter her parents; a professor his former Ph. D. students, a young lady her boy friend, and an anonymous recruited two Life Members for 80-20. Please see emails below.

Dear Larry: Are you a member of 80-20? It is an excellent non-partisan
organization fighting for empowerment of Asian Americans that I am a
great supporter? I do not know how to use my son's computer to forward
