Dear friends and supporters:
To welcome Year 2006, the year of the Dog, Lua Viet Youth Association would like to present to you our annual Lua Viet magazine. We would also like to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a prosperous and joyous new year.
As you flip through the pages of the 2006 edition, you will no doubt realize that not only are we striving to preserve and encourage literary customs, but are also actively seeking to ensure a hope-filled future for those less fortunate children and countrymen and women back in Viet Nam . Your continued support and purchase of Lua Viet magazine year after year has allowed us to maintain, and in some instances, expand our non-profit humanitarian programs.
The price of Lua Viet Magazine is $8.00. For this modest price, you receive ovef 200 pages brimming with meaningful articles and poetry, artistically decorated, interspersed with refreshing photographs, a beautiful 4-color cover of original commissioned artwork, and best of all, no advertisements whatsoever. All net proceeds from the sale of this year's magazine will go to the Friendship Rice Bowl program (Che'n Ga.o Ti`nh Tha^n), as in all years past. Please help us attain this year's goal of $85,2000 to fund scholarships, orphanages, and other social and medical programs in Viet Nam.
If you would like to buy a copy of this year's magazine, and or to help sell them at local Te^'t celebrations and Vietnamese communities, or to make a donation to the CGTT program, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

As always we appreciate your support and hope that you enjoy this year's magazine and applaud both its contents and aesthetic value.
