Brother 2 Brother Symposium

Ladies and Gentleman,

I am happy to announce that the Brother 2 Brother Literary Symposium (B2BLS) will be held this year at TSU University. The event is November 21-22, 2008. We are excited with this great opportunity and are moving forward with great purpose and direction to help the youth of the City of Houston. With your help we can make this event spectacular. We already have the commitment of four major publishing houses to put a book in every person's hand that attends our event. Remember the event is free and open to the public.

That's why we need your assistance. Your tax deductible contribution in the amount of $40.00 will sponsor 4 children. It costs $11.00 per day for our two day event for a child to attend. It costs $52.00 a day to incarcerate a person. Please make your donation by 11-10-2008. Save a youth from Dropping out of school. The drop-Out rate in Houston is 50% for young men and 37% for young women. Please go to www.b2bls.com and make your donation on the Paypal button or you can send it in to:

PO BOX 752481
Houston, TX 77275
You will get no return on your tax dollars from a person incarcerated. The 2400 youth attending our event, just working part-time at $7.00 per hour can bring into the Houston economy over $16 million dollars.

You can inspire faith, hope, education, and dreams by lending your support. Please give and show you care about our youth and Houston. I am here and dedicated to the Houston Community and to TSU University to shed a positive educational light that beacons our youth to opportunities and possibilities of a great future and productive life.

Don't just talk about it, be about it! Help us help our youth. Help us help Texas. Together we can make a positive difference and spread learning and literacy across this great state. Please feel free to forward to friend and other business owners that can help make this a remarkable event. Please help Houston youth.

Thanks and I can be reached at 816-914-1560.
