Finally, I end this year and walkabout with a special gift. A good friend of mine works at a small center in Kuala Lumpur that serves as school for more than 100 Myanmar refugee children, ages 6-17. Recently, she brought to my attention that their current supply of food and notebooks will run out by end November.
The Malaysian government does not recognise refugee status and these children do not have the right to education here. You may wish to visit the centers website to better understand their needs - www.myhelpcommunity.blogspot.com.
I would like to invite all laughter leaders and teachers around the world to join me in raising funds to help these children. I also ask that each of you would in turn speak to 10 other people to help raise money through the sale of my books. Every dollar made in profit will go towards the kids.
In the current economic situation, $1 may not go very far. But in this part of the world, for $1 a child eats for a day. At $365, that child eats for a year. But with $3,650 the whole school eats for a year. So my goal is to raise US$3,650 this November and December.
If you are thinking of buying books as Christmas presents for friends and family, please consider getting my books too. You might wish to print out a copy of this letter to be included with the gift so that your loved ones know where the money is going.
The books are available on Amazon.com for US$3.99, and on Amazon UK for £2.90. However, these are ebooks for Kindle:
