See! There really are good people in this world!
My name is Ken Watanabe … yes just like the actor in “The Last Samurai” 🙂
I was born in Japan but grew up in Vancouver and currently live in Surrey. I am 34yrs old and married (10 year anniversary next year) and have a 3 year old daughter.
I am a full-time currency trader and instructor. I also run a blog, which I talk about currency trading and whatever else I have on my mind. I basically cater to the Japanese community so my blog and website is in Japanese.
I wrote a ebook on trading (in Japanese) which I sell on my site. Every month I donate 10% of my ebook sales to the BC Children’s hospital. Since the launch of my ebook (Feb 2008), I am proud to say I have donated over $1,300 to BCCH.
Not as impressive as your $5K tho…
Since I usually donate every month anyway, after reading your blog, I thought this time why not donate to UGM. Below is a copy of my email receipt from UGM.
Anyway, I’m a fan of your blog. I especially enjoy your DotCom Pho videos. I’m a bit bit busy with my family on Saturdays but I hope to eat Pho with you guys one of these days! Keep up the good work John!
Thanks to readers like Ken, the Union Gospel Mission has another $500 added on top on the $5,000 donation made last week. I’m sure the number will go up by a few hundred dollars after today’s Dot Com Pho. Everyone who made a donation is getting a shout out in the Dot Com Pho Video. If you want to get in on that, you have a few hour left.
