This email has just hit the inboxes of Scientologists.
Joburg North’s building has been a problem from day one, from the time the org was going to be a city office, no an org, no a city office and then finally an org. This was the reason Africa was announced as having purchased all it’s ideal buildings and then just a few months later announced that Joburg North needed a building.
This org is probably best compared with PE org in terms of its historical size. The email is titled “Call to Arms”, a phrase so overused it literally has no meaning any more. As for Ian raising a R2 million bond. No words.
Subject: Call to Arms
Dear Scientologist and Joburg North supporters,
This is a heartfelt note to all our public. It’s time for us to stand together.
We are at a turning point with the purchase of our Ideal Org building. We have reached the halfway mark with our fundraising. There are other interested parties in our building, putting offers in. We need to make a move and do it fast!! We all need to work out something bigger than usual for our Ideal Org. It is so vital that we get the Ideal Org that I am appealing to all of you to dig deep. It is necessary for the area serviced by Joburg North (and for Africa for that matter) that we get our fundraising targets met and Joburg North’s Ideal Org building purchased. This is so very important to me as the ED that I have raised a bond on some property for R2million for the Ideal Org campaign.
All we need to do is look and see how many people we are able to handle at any one time in the existing Joburg North building, extrapolate that out to the entire area we need to service, and we can then see the real need for us to get our Ideal Org as soon as possible. Not just that, but our AO awaits too.
My valuable final product as the ED is a “viable, expanding org”. Because we are a team in what we do, it is also the VFP of all our staff and public. We are all in this together and as the ED I am counting on everyone’s support to get this done. This is our turn. We are going to make the difference in our lifetimes to the city of ours!!
Joburg North’s staff and public have caused many affluences before. And what causes an affluence can do it again. I am committed to seeing this project through! I now really need your help to dig deep and help us finish this target. This is our org, our neighbourhood and our city! Once we get our building we will all create a movement towards completion that cannot and will not get stopped. It just needs all of our public’s agreement and alignment, and we will complete the building purchase in the period required.
What do you say? Let’s just be totally crazy and get this done!
Executive Director, Joburg North
