Dear Chapter Presidents,

By now, you should have learned or read about the “8/1 Gas Explosion in Kaohsiung” that had cause unbelievable tragedies and tremendous loss of lives and properties in southern part of Kaohsiung City. As loving and caring Taiwanese American in the United States, we definitely feel the pain and sorrow for our fellow Taiwanese of the area due to this tragedy.

Many chapter presidents and chapter members had contacted TAA-USA and asked to start the collective efforts from all TAs to help suffering Taiwanese in the tragedy area. Thus, I would like to propose, for chapters with tax-exempt status, please help to collect contributions of your member and issue the receipt to them. Then, if agreeable, mail the amount to TAA-USA, so, collectively, we can wire the total amount to the special assistance account provided by the municipal office of Kaohsiung City. For chapters without tax-exempt status, please ask your members to mail their contribution to TAA-USA treasurer and the TAA-USA will provide the tax-exempt receipt.

For all check contributions, please make check payable to (either TAA-USA or local chapter) with note of “8/1 Gas Explosion in Kaohsiung” in the memo field.

The address to mail to is:

Ms. Sophie Chi
TAA-USA Treasurer
8220 Crestwood Heights Drive, #208

Let’s start this efforts immediately and conclude the task in 3-4 weeks, i.e. to wire the total contribution to the special account in early September. Here is the information coming out from the municipal office of Kaohsiung City (and, the special assistance account is where we will wire our collective contribution to):
