I just learned that 53% of those who read my last newsletter opened it up on their mobile device. Accordingly, I'm switching the newsletter over to this new format so that you will always have the most convenient access to my latest ideas and teaching schedule.

October/November 2015

I was surprised to learn that 53% of my readers are looking at these newsletters on their mobile devices. Consequently, I'm changing the newsletter to keep up with the latest technology. Please let me know how all this looks on your end, on your mobile phone. 

In the meanwhile, I thought it would be helpful to write a little bit about federal grants. I won the first eight that I wrote. One of our clients, Irvine Valley College, just won $1.5 million from the U.S. Department of Education to fund a new Advanced Intercultural Learning Center to benefit Asian American, Pacific Islander students.

Local law enforcement agencies can win substantial federal grants if they apply for funding.

The Affinity 4 A Cause program has been developed to provide non-profit organizations with a passive way to generate on-going contributions from the businesses in their giving base. If your non-organization refers Affinity 4 A Cause to a business that switches their merchant account to them, then your charity will begin receiving revenue based on the referred business's credit card processing. Affinity 4 A Cause will also reduce the business's costs of using merchant services too. For more information, please contact Tim Pidcock at tim@bluewatersps.com or call him at (949) 677-9428.
