#486: Survey on US-Based Haitian/Haitian-American Organizations (fwd)
Dear Mr. Corbett
I am presently conducting a survey on US-based Haitian/Haitian-American
organizations. I am therefor writing to ask you if it will be possible to
post the following message on your list for me so that I will have access to
a wider audience for this survey.
You could also fill out the survey for us, since what we are aiming at here,
I think, might interest your group. If you have questions you can e-mail me
back at email@example.com.
Thank you for your help,
Here's the message that I would like to display:
Dear Sir or Madam
I am presently conducting a survey on US-Bases Haitian and Haitian-American
organizations for the firm Management Sytems International (MSI) which is
currently managing the civil society project in Haiti. The aim of the
survey is to identify Haitian/Haitian-American Orgaizations in the big US
metropolis, their sector activities, and their interest in working in Haiti.
In doing so, MSI is hoping to facilitate links between these organizations
in the US and those in Haiti, and establish a stronger bridge for technical
assistance and other assistance that individuals and organizations in the US
would like to provide to those in Haiti.
I am therefore asking for your help in filling out this survey for me to the
best of your abilities. If you know of other organizations you can also
pass it to them for them to fill out for me. You can either return it to me
via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can fax to us at MSI: Attn
philippe accilien @ 202-488-0754.
I appreciate you're taking the time to fill this out for us, and if you have
any questions please feel free to contact me via e-mail or you can call me
(philippe accilien) @ 202-484-7170.
Thank you, Sincerely
