Clean Slate Guide
"I am very sorry that I cannot attend your event today, but I would like to take this opportunity to wish the Clean Slate Campaign every success. I am very happy to support this excellent initiative. Everyone can think of something that they either should have done, or should not have done, and the Clean Slate Campaign provides an opportunity not only to start afresh, but to learn from the past and behave differently in the future.
"I hope that as many people as possible can begin the new Millennium by 'wiping the slate clean'."
