Dear Coral-Listers


On behalf of WorldFish Center I am seeking your assistance in distributing
this announcement about a charity auction of Solomon Islands pearls. The
pearls form the result of an international aid project by WorldFish Center,
aimed to benefit the livelihoods of Solomon Islanders. We hope you'll be
able to spread the word about this exciting event, e.g. by posting a link on
your website, or simply emailing it to those who may be interested in this.
For further details, please visit the "Pearls of Promise" Webpage at:

Thanking you in advance for any assistance you may provide. 





The tranquil waters of Solomon Islands have yielded a harvest of hope -
exquisite black pearls that promise a lifetime of pleasure to those who
acquire them and new livelihoods for people emerging from years of civil


These beautiful pearls are the rich reward of an international aid project*
designed to create new jobs for Solomon Islanders. They are being showcased
to the world at a special auction in Sydney on 30 June. To see the pearl
necklaces and other jewellery crafted for this event, and to register your
bid, visit the Pearls of Promise website:

The project partners encourage you not to miss this opportunity to buy these
beautiful pearls, and help the people of Solomon Islands to build their
future. All profits from the auction will be given to the hospital in the
Western Province of Solomon Islands, the area where the pearls were grown.
