  1. Hello:
    I am hoping for your help or your staff’s help to allow the children in the hospital in your area the chance to talk directly to Santa, Rudolph, Mrs. Claus and the elves directly at their North Pole workshop via the magical business band radio the hospital maintenance personnel uses.
    I organized such an event in 2003, and have developed a new, valuable, innovative way that I hope your talents can help countless children improve their spirits and self esteem while they are in the hospital. I hope that one day soon, you will read about this in my Blog at : . I started the project ten years ago and have been searching for someone to move the five new ideas to help patients forward clinically. I have not been successful this far.
    Best regards,

  2. Greeting of Peace and goodwill!

    Good day sir. I am a senior Nursing Student from the University of Santo Tomas, Manila, Philippines. I am interested in presenting our poster at your said conference event.

    Our study is about caregiving appraisal. We have developed a module similar to the WHO’s IMCI that is essentially designed for use by the spouse caregivers of stroke patients.

    We now ask your good office what the requirements are in order for us to be able to present at your conference.

    Our passion for caring and love for nursing made us want to go as far as this and share whatever we have experienced and learned to the Global Village. Also, we would want to share our module for use by the caregivers around the world. I hope humanity can benefit from our study, as stroke rates are now increasing worldwide; what with all the unhealthy practices done by modern people.

    I hope I can get a response from you soon.

    Thank you very much and more power!
