Learnathon 2013 – Part 9.

by Patrick Liew on November 27, 2013

‘How To Be Rich And Wealthy’ Seminar – A Win-Win Fund Raising Project For Victims Of The Super Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda.

2 December 2013 (Monday), 7:00 - 11.00pm, Shine Auditorium, 100 Beach Road, #03-01, Shaw Tower, Singapore 189702

Learnathon 2013 has become one of the toughest charity projects for me.

Actually, every charity project is tough. Doing business is such a breeze by comparison.

Still, I’m confident we will have 1000 people attending the event.

I will always remember the words of Richard Tan, my partner and friend.He once told me:

“When I set a goal, I put my whole life into it to make sure it becomes a reality.

The uphill climb is not made any easier because I still have to work. Yes, I have to work.

In my opinion, I have the hardest job in town.

I also have to be involved with grassroots work and other charities.

On top of that, I have lots of academic assignments. And I have to teach new subject materials within the next one week.

Having said that, I know my challenges are nothing compared to what the survivors of the typhoon are going through in Philippines.

I will beat another door down to raise every precious dollar and cent

1. Three (3) ‘Yes’es And Three (3) ‘No’s For Doing Good Works.

I have posted my personal principles for working as a team on Facebook.

This is a reminder for all our volunteers who have been working very hard. Some of them are suffering work fatigues and stress.

Ok, ok, it’s not because of work –  it’s me.

I’m a slave driver. My fault entirely. Haha!


2. Naysayers.

As usual, we have our fair share of naysayers.

Somehow, there will always be a group of people who think that that they are entitled to grumble, grouse, and gripe.

When they do that, they believe they will remove problems and add to the solutions.

I’m happy for them. They can only make us a stronger and more resilient team.

3. Wonderful Offer.

KC, one of our esteemed speakers has sent a message to all his students.

He will match any donation.

For every $1 donated through Learnathon 2013, he will match it with $0.50.

Well done KC! Your offer melts my heart.

4. Briefing.

We are holding a briefing about Learnathon 2013 this Wednesday, 27 November 2013, 7.30pm to 9.30pm, HSR Cafe, Ground level,
HSR Building,
3 Lorong 6, Toa Payoh
#01-01, Singapore 319378.

We need more volunteers.

Pl pass the message.

5. Esteemed Speakers.

Our reknowned speakers have been pressurized by you-know- who to help us drive bums to seats.

Soon, they will not be picking my calls anymore. Lol!

A big round of applause for all their help and support.

Speakers, now that you’ve received the applause, please get 100 more people to Learnathon 2013. 🙂

6. Strategic Change.

Confession time.

I made a tactical error. A thousand apologies.

When we started promoting Learnathon 2013, we promoted it as a charity project. Bad mistake.

Somehow, it didn’t work well.

Probably because charity event means low standards.

We are begging them to donate on the grounds of sympathy.

I believe that Leanathon 2013 is a seminar that provides the highest values.

Participants’ will benefit from the speakers’ wisdom. It is worth much more than $100 per head.

Let’s sell Learnathon 2013’s  unique strengths, advantages, benefits, values, and
edge. Go4It!

7. To All Volunters,

I know you are trying hard to promote Learnathon 2013.

Please do not feel stressed. If it’s too hard, take a break.

Just try your best.

We are doing good and should be proud of it.

I believe with all my heart that Learnathon 2013 offers top values. It’s worth much much more than $100.

Come 2 December, it will be a FULL HOUSE.

All of us will be proud that we have done a good deed. We have made sacrifices to provide reliefs to our brothers and sisters in Philippines.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Learnathon 2013 will be a great show. It will be an event that we will remember for years to come.

Join us now…
