She taught us at JVP thatthere is still plenty of money out there; it's just unevenlydistributed. Her consistent message: people give because we ask.Poking fun at money taboos, assuring us that fundraising is notthat hard, Kim reminds us that the system is held in place bymoney: if we don't learn about it, we can't change it!"
