Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting Trading Cards Still Available for Charity

May 4, 2008

Berkshire Hathaway Trading Cards for Charity

Just back from Omaha and the Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting. It was Business Wire’s third meeting as a Berkshire Hathaway company and each year seems to get better and better.

In addition to getting to talk with so many Berkshire shareholders, this year we created a set of limited edition trading cards that we sold to raise money for a very important charity, CASA of Douglas County, Nebraska, an organization that provides a voice for abused and neglected children within the court system.

The cards (six different ones) feature photos of Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger and BW’s Cathy Baron Tamraz, along with quotes from each. We’re proud to say that so far we’ve raised $5,000 for the cause. We do have a few more sets available that you can order if you weren’t able to get to Omaha.

To order your set, please send a $10 check for each set to Business Wire (it’s fully tax-deductible – we’ll send you a receipt) with a self-addressed stamped return envelope to:

Raising Money for Children – BW Booth at the 08 Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting

Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting - Business Wire Fundraiser for CASA
At this year’s Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting, Business Wire has put together a series of six commemorative trading cards featuring quotes and photos of Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger and Cathy Baron Tamraz as well as “stats” on Business Wire. The cards are dated to mark this year’s BH shareholders meeting on May 3, 2008.

With these cards, we’re raising money for CASA of Douglas County, Nebraska. CASA of Douglas County, NECASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is a charitable organization that provides a voice for abused and neglected children within the court system. So if you’re in Omaha on Saturday at the Shareholders Meeting, please stop by the Business Wire booth and make a $10 donation for this worthy cause. If you’d like to donate to CASA directly, contact them online.

We have a limited number of these cards, so they are available only at our booth at this time and on a first-come basis.
