Hi! For friends and family who may not know him, I'd like to introduce my good friend Andre Henry (www.andrerhenry.com/). He's a committed anti-racism activist with a decidedly entrepreneurial spirit and bigger heart, who's public speaking and publications have already blessed many nationwide. This is a *surprise* fundraiser to raise money to send Andre to a intensive writer's seminar run by The OpEd Project (www.theopedproject.org/) happening in two months on March 10th in Los Angeles. In the midst of juggling multiple research jobs, developing independent online content, and preparing for speaking events, Andre shared with me that he'd love to attend one of the OpEd Project's trainings specifically to hone his message and broaden his writing's audience. I'd love to see him make this dream a reality, and I hope that the collective financial blessing of his community can make it happen. Let's keep this fundraiser a secret so that we can all surprise him with it as an early gift for his birthday, which happens to be a day before the seminar! Any funds we generate will be deposited to Andre directly by February 10th, which is the last day to get the early bird rate for the event. Thank you so much for considering this opportunity to invest in Andre's work.
