There is a dynamic woman in my community who has worked diligently for over 35 years to assure that community children learn to read and grow into healthy individuals. She certainly deserves a geniius grant. How does one recommend someone? I read years ago that there is a committee that makes the selections but their names are secret, and they do not accept recommendations. Soooooooooooooooooo, how does it work. How do I recommend my community person?
Thanks.

Your foundation is funding A.C.'s in Mexico the country, I am writing on behalf of 10's of thousands of Mexican business men whom will not tolerate this, if you want to kill you own babies like the 50 million you have already killed, may it be on your heads but, do not bring you horrible customs to Mexico will will not tolerate it.
In short do not fund anymore A.C.'s or we will all get together, and well. Use you imagination.
