How Asians Living Outside the US View 80-20

What do Asians living in other parts of the world think of an organization
like the 80-20?
Self-serving & useless? Or wish that there is an 80-20
fighting for them?

See the 3 emails sent respectively by Asians from Hong Kong, Australia
and Canada, all on the same day which may imply a fairly uniform
evaluation of 80-20, and all as a reaction to "80-20 Is Dying (2)". They all
showed great respect and admiration for 80-20. BTW, 80-20 doesn't
know how their e-addresses got into 80-20's 300,000 subscriber list.
80-20 focuses on communicating with Asian Am. only, and didn't solicit
such comments from within or outside the USA.

Two of the writers wanted to help 80-20 with their money. The 3rd
one wished that 80-20 could exist in Australia. 80-20 has gotten such fan
mails from Asian Australians often.

For those who haven't joined 80-20, please try to see 80-20 from the
eyes of those who observe from afar.

I would have made some donations were it not for the fact that I am not a
U.S. citizen nor U.S. resident (green card holder). Correct me if I am
wrong. But I think the law prohibits donations to PAC groups in the
U.S. from overseas nationals.

I think what you guys are doing are great. Fung, HungHee

Dear SB Woo Just a note to wish you well. What an admirable spirit!
Do hope that your vision will be sustained into the future.

In Australia most Chinese “community leaders” we are still trying to be
good fellows so that they are patted on the heads by white hands from
time to time. Chek

Dr. Woo Thank you for your emails. You are doing a fantastic job on
behalf of all Asians and should be commended for your efforts.

Would membership from an Asian Canadian be helpful for your cause?

Your past achievements are inspiring and I hope that you will continue
with your campaign for equality.


 Fax, and e-addresses of the authors were deleted by 80-20 as a
courtesy to them.

If the above 3 emails can't convince you to join 80-20 today,
I don't think I can do better. When 80-20 is gone & when a political
storm hits the Asian Am. community, might you wish that 80-20 is
still alive to fight for you?

Do $35 or $50 mean that much to you? If they do, d 4eb ue to financial
hardship, I sincerely hope that you'll keep the money to use them for your
family. If they don't, consider using the money for the good of our entire
community and your offspring.
