Dear Bitcoiners,

I'm Mike, the founder and current president of the Simon Fraser Bitcoin Club.
I've been a Bitcoiner since May of 2011 and have recently started Canada's first university group for Bitcoin this fall.
As an advocacy group, we promote Bitcoin through education and assisting the everyday person and business adopt its use.
Our previous event in September was a life-changing experience for many in the audience.
And now we want to invite you to our next major event, The Power of Bitcoin:

http://www.meetup.com/bitcoinvan/events/150977622/

The event will include
• A discussion on Bitcoin's monetary & political implications
• A presentation on how Bitcoin will revolutionize crowdfunding.
• A workshop for newcomers to learn how to set up and secure their very own digital wallets to carry and use bitcoins.
• And the world's FIRST-EVER LIVE Bitcoin fundraiser to support Schools Building Schools.

Hi folks,

Last Thursday, the Simon Fraser Bitcoin Club from beautiful Vancouver, Canada (home to the world's first BTC ATM) held an event called "The Power of Bitcoin". Close to 100 people attended.

At the end of that event, close to $1,400 CAD in BTC was donated to Schools Building Schools at what was the world's first live/in-person Bitcoin fundraiser.

Schools Building Schools, a federally registered charity in Canada, recently became the first CDN organization of its kind to accept bitcoins for donations after consulting with the club.

$1,500 is not too shabby for a first try!

(A final donation of $500 will be made soon by the Vancouver Bitcoin Co-op).

So there you have it! Welcome to the power of Bitcoin!

Mike Yeung,
Founder & President
