Dear Friend:

Your attention and contribution is needed more so today than perhaps ever before. We have finally found a way to turn America upside down or inside out. At the rate we are going we will become a fourth world unskilled nation, preyed upon by anyone at any time. As Baron MacGregor’s best put it in “The Americans”; when America is broke, no one will come to its aid.

We, the People, don’t have to stand silent as our nation’s assets are continuously being sold or outsourced to other nations. The foundation of our nation—built upon the shoulders of small business owners and individuals—is only as strong as the people that believe it. It can only sustain the on slaughter if those that care takes action to keep it strong. We realized that everyone is not able to contribute as the Vocational Institute of Michigan (VIM), but anyone can support VIM’s efforts through contributions.

When you support VIM you are doing your part to help seal cracks in America’s foundation caused by leaders that may have forgotten their roots. Who is VIM? VIM is a Michigan nonprofit institution established in 1990 to promote vocational training. Its focus is on skill trades in residential, industrial and commercial facilities. The institute is positioned to provide skill trade training programs at entry or advanced levels specific to any location. We are able to do this through contributions and low budget project management. For every dollar that we earn or receive in contributions we put into designing education programs that lead to jobs or career advancement.

Our goal for fiscal year July, 2013 to July, 2014 is to raise five million dollars. Two million for implementing the training associates with our affiliate D`Angus Technology’s specially designed “sponsored apprenticeship programs” that is in the process of being approved by the US Employment, and Training Administration (ETA). Two million will be used to put in place training programs that the state of Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) and the city of Detroit, Buildings Safety & Engineering and Environmental Department (BSEED) has approved. The final million will be used in research and planning of special accelerated training programs aimed at helping people in impoverished cities like Detroit Michigan, Pine Bluff, AK, Albany, GA, Macon, GA, Rocky Mount, NC, McAllen, TX, Brownsville, TX, El Centro, CA, Yuma, AZ, Saginaw, MI, Flint, MI, and others to quickly gain trade skills needed to meet area shortages. Note, contributions of any amount will be immensely appreciated. Give now! Visit Vocational Institute of Michigan at http://vim-inc.org/donations/
