It touched our harts from this letter.
16 August, 2002.
Dear PDG Dens W.L. Shao District 3520
It is with great pleasure to meet you at Kuala Lumpur Presidential Conference. Although we did not have much time to talk, a friend is always a friend. We always remember your hospitality to donate US$5000 DDF to our district during our year. This story was always told to our fellow rotarians in my district.
Dens, I have some thing to ask for your help. As you know the current Rotary Year which Commenced on 1st July 2002 is very special to Thai Rotarians in that our most notable Rotarian Bhichai Rattakul, is President of Rotary International. He is the first Thai national to be so honored. In order to celebrate his Presidency, Thai Rotary is launching a project to provide 10,000 bicycles to needy and underprivileged Thai school children. I was selected to be this project Chairman.
At present these children are forced to walk to and from schools; a round journey that is often of several miles. The bicycles with 5 years warranty will be given to school. The school will give them on loan to needy children and will be returned after the graduation for use by other deserving students.
By this way, every year there will be thousands of new students to receive bicycles and thousands of new students to learn more about Rotary. These children will grow up with the knowledge of Rotary in their minds because they are riding on Rotary Bicycles. This will be good for our beloved organization in long run. Kindly be advised that the project budget for these 10000 bicycles will be raised through a series of Matching Grant which District 3340 will administer.
If your club or district looking for a project this year. We would be very grateful if you or your club would consider our project. Any donation would be most welcome. You may be assured that your sponsorship will receive full recognition. Please help the poor children of Thailand.
Thank you in anticipation of your support, to "SOW THE SEEDS OF LOVE."
