Dear Breakthrough Corporation,
Enclosed with this letter is a donation check for $477.00. That may seem like an odd amount (and literally, it is) but there is a reason for this unusual number. April 2nd is World Autism Day, as you are well aware, and I did something special that day to help fellow people who have Autism.
One of my special interests is trading stocks and options. Itís a newly found interest and is a good fit for my personality, plus the potential to make lots of money makes it very useful. I decided that on World Autism Day I would take the highest winning trade and take profits on that trade and donate it to an Autism charity. It just so happens that trade was worth $477.00.
My next dilemma was to choose which worthy Autism charity to donate the money. It did not take me long to decide to keep it close to Knoxville. And since it just so happened that I was getting ready for Ribbon Run 5k on April 19th, Breakthrough Corporation was fresh in my mind.
I look forward to Breakthrough Corporation making a larger impact in the Knoxville community. Iím also looking forward to participating in the Ribbon Run 5k in the years to come. My only regret is that I did not send this check in sooner.
p.s. Here my blog entry on my plan for World Autism day: http://www.planet3rry.com/2008/04/02/world-autism-day/ and this is the result: http://www.planet3rry.com/2008/04/03/world-autism-donation-result/
