UPDATE ON OUR FORUM BROTHER

Figure this would be a good time to pass along what our dear friend "COOL BLUE" is doing. Many of us have known Paul (COOL BLUE) for more than a decade from Freewinners and the forums. I had the pleasure of meeting with Paul in Las Vegas, San Francisco and last year he and our good friend DONORMAN flew here to Florida to share the Thanksgiving holidays with the family. A lot of great times.

In the past year he has decided to start his own charity in Vietnam and went back home where most of his family live.

He is looking to open up a new restaurant on Phu Quoc Island which is a super hot choice for foreign and local tourists. Restaurants do really well out there. Seafood are fresh, abundant, and cheap. He willl be serving fresh seafood and escargot and a ton of beers. The most important thing he has been doing is starting up a new charity.

Its called beCauseVietnam Charity. There are 6 core members. He is one of the co-founders. They raise most of the money in the States. A lot of donations come from friends, locals and big companies matching programs. They throw charity happy hour (Drinks for a Cause) to raise funds. Facebook connections also help out too.

So lets all like his facebook page.
http://www.facebook.com/beCauseVietnam


He doesnt get any compensation from the charity. They just give and do whatever they can to help the poor here.
So Im asking if you can send out the words to the guys and gals on the forum, maybe even can get a few donations here and there. I know things are really tough here in the US and we all are broke at our own level. But if you have an extra 5 bucks and it being the Thanksgiving holiday this week maybe pass it along to one of our good friends.
Maybe we can entice him to make an appearance on the forum and throw out a few picks.

If you care to help out, any amount is helpful. $5 bucks can feed a child for a week.

The website for the charity. http://becausevietnam.org/


Good Luck COOL BLUE and save me a seat when the restaurant is completed. Keep us updated with the work you are doing.

Good place to put a couple of bucks for the holiday

Never, ever criticize someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes........for at that point they will be a mile away. And you'll have their shoes !

By the way if I forgot to mention. Drinks are on Cool Blue anytime you visit once the new restaurant is up and running.

Totally serious, although plane tickets and hotel reservations are on you.

Thanks guys.
