Re: [IP] Bill Gates -janet



Janet,
Thanks for your research on Bill Gates Foundation.  This letter is just the
begininng.  I am going to send it to Gates and then see where I want to go
from there.  There are many other places/people that are willing to
donate-they just need to be educated on this disease.  Thanks again,
Melissa
