A Suggested Proposal

Coach Zohra Sarwari will teach:
5 Ways to Make Money From Home
It’s a 2-hours online/phone class, if you sign up through HalfDate it’s
$30, regular price is $97.
We get 30 signups for this teleclass. Coach Zohra will donate all the money, so that’s $900 less paypal fees. We get another 4 donors/investors to invest in Al-Madina School elephant ride fundraising event at $1000 each, that’s $4900 total. We then all promote the elephant ride event and hopefully after June 6th, that $4000 will be return to the investors, and remaining donations will be reinvested into new projects.
Al-Manidah School is a registered not-for-profit organization, Tax ID 51-0179919.
