An Open Letter; My Finances

Dear Ms. Lunelle,

I am always amazed at the comments made by my detractors who presume to know and understand the condition of my finances over the years. They go to my website, www.southernheritage411.com, and see that a speaking engagement fee is posted in the amount of $20,000, and that under some fee waiver conditions is waived for $500 under certain circumstances deemed. And I might add is a paltry sum in comparison to what all the poverty pimps who I battle receive and most other public speakers.

The irony of it all is that never have I received this fee, and very seldom do I get the fee waiver of $500, even when I travel to far off places. And on many of these occasions, I just allow the passing of the hat, and accept donations from kind folks who will stop at my donation box, and I have to say that on some of these occasions I have traveled vast distances, and the hat isn't even passed, and I have to hope that somebody will see and understand that whats on that table of wares that I set up is a tool to close the mouths of those who hate all things Southern, and an investment of untold historic value that also helps me to continue to carry God's work forward for my homeland and its honorable poulation.

And let us take a look at PayPal that has been on my email account since October of 2011:

Account Statement / October 2011
          10-15-2011 Donation received--$200.00

Account Statement / November 2011 : $0

Account Statement / December 2011
          12/21/2011 - Donation received--$100.00
          12/21/2011 - Donation received--$50.00
          12/22/2011 - Donation received--$25.00

Account Statement / January 2012
          1/5/2012 - Donation received--$25.00
          1/5/2012 - Donation received--$25.00

Account Statement / February 2012
          2/3/2012 - Donation received--100.00

Other donations received from individuals total less than $800.00

I hope that this overview gives a clear picture on the level of financial support that I receive, and to put it into perspective, most of what I fight with comes out of my own pocket which stays empty most of the time because of it. Thereby my detractors can take a hike, or give a much needed helping hand. God bless you.

Your brother,

HK
