Brazil funding member travel to World Congress

In the blog posted by Katinka, there was a mention about the travel expenses
for many attendees from Brazil being paid by the Section or one of the
wealthy members. It is very good that Brazil is doing it. I wish more
sections would do the same so that poor members can participate in World
Congress. And many sections can afford to do it.

For example, American Section has perhaps most money in their treasury and
soon the British Section would be very wealthy once they sell Tekels Park
and we may see a similar situation in NZ when it sells Orewa land and

Recently it appears that the American Sectionâs lawyer told the court in
Orlando Lodge closure litigation that they may be spending a six figure
amount in the litigation. Litigation, with competent lawyers is very
expensive and most of the time the members never find out how much money the
Section spends on litigation.

If money is available to be spent on litigation, surely we can spend money
to help  poor members travel to World Congress.

Let us hope every Section follows the lead of Brazil and sends their members
for the next Congress.
