Now, as the months drag on, New Orleans, Louisiana has been removed from the
headlines. But homelessness, strained living conditions, separation from
friends and broken lives still bring day-by-day tears, heartache and
humiliation unimaginable to the non-Gulf Coast dweller.
The effort to rebuild New Orleans, Louisiana involves everyone. We welcome
your thoughts and ideas as the planning and design process of recovery and
rebuilding begins. The Hurricane Rebuilding is likely to take up to five
years, according to report from the American Institute of Architects.
It is therefore our great pleasure to invite skillful organizations,
students, youth, unemployed men and women to take part in the Rebuilding of
Hurricane Affected Cities Program.,
I wish to bring to your knowledge that we had been able to secure support
from our partners, donors, and the State Government of Pennsylvania. Flight
tickets grant and visas support will be given to international partakers.
If you are willing and ready to be part of the Rebuilding of Hurricane
Affected Cities Program, please contact Madam, Joyce Moame Via this mail
address : email@example.com
Tell her you are invited by SUZZY BERNARD to be part of the hurricane
Looking forward to your participation
For Pennsylvania, Hurricane Rebuilding Committee

Thanks for your mail, sometimes, life certainly can feel that way.... and what better shelter from the storms and trials of daily life than friendship and to know that there is someone out there you can fall back on. Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there...to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out whom you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be but when
you lock eyes with them; you know that every moment they will affect your life in some profound way.
And sometimes things happen to you at the time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, will power or heart. Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul.
Without these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless-the people you meet affect your life. The successes and downfalls that you experience can create who you are, and the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones. So if you're seriously looking for a friend to get to know, you have found me.
I am glad to meet you too. Like as I have already informed you in my previous letter about my job. I am living alone at my own apartment given to me by my father. I am the First child of my parents. My parent have three children, two girls and a boy by namefloral as the Last child, Jumes ,is second to me .I am single and havent marry once. My hobbies are reading, watching movies, listening to soft musics, long driving, swimming and travelling. I hate delay, that is sluggishness and rocrastinating, I hate lies. I love some one who is trustworthy and does not smoke nor drink. I love nature and sometimes I wish I owned a house in the country not far from a city.
You wake up to fresh mountain air, gaze the green scenery, see green verges growing in your little garden and so much more. Kind of boring right? No, imagine I am with my sweetheart in those quite surroundings, well, I leave it to your own imagination what will happen Some times I am always busy with the job activities during the Refugee resettlement program. I have travelled to many countries around the globe in our course of visiting some refugee camps in other countries.
I will be attending a combined conference in Africa bythis year. The conference is scheduled to hold in U .S. A. first and follow by the one in Africa.
I am one of the organisers of the coming youth combined conferences taking place in the USANorth America 10th -15th ofSeptember 2008and in Burkina Faso, West Africa from 16th - 20hofSeptember2008. This conference was planned to be heldThis year, international year of volunteer and was supposed to commencein September.
We are inviting five delegates from each of the selected countries around the world. In our request to invite youths from the selected countries, I went in search of e-mail on theNet website as a means of contacting youths and organisations in these countries. I picked your e-mail froma dating website.
You will assist us in relating to one of your friends that you love, the existing youths , or Muslim and Christians organisation in your country to contact the conference secretariat in the US through this fax +1-916-724-8057 or through this e-mail email@example.com
But before they could be considered for participation in this most esteemed event,your organisation will have to forward to the above address the following requirement.
1) The organisation profile.

With this information put into consideration by the organising committee, they will be officially invited to participate in this. Our independent donor will take care of all their flight tickets and their accommodation through their stay in the US and the organising committee will process the US visa for all participants requiring entry visas to the US. Participants will only take care of their accommodation during the other event in Burkina Faso. As one of the organisers I knew not of anybody from your country. Hence my writing to you is to gain access to your friends, orany youth organisation in your country.
If you are interested to participate and wants to represent your country, you should contact the secretary to the organiser for detail information on registration procedures and inform the organiser that I recommended you. You will need not to forward the above requirement for your group or organisation; hence I will give your recommendation to the secretary.
