I leave for Guatemala today to celebrate the end of our 6th successful year and the high school graduation of four more reading promoters: Maribel, Laura, Rony and Olivia. We’ve seen the impact our teens have had on the children they read to, and now we’re seeing the impact on their own lives as they graduate. This powerful story is captured in a new video professionally produced for us by Adam Soch. Be sure to have a look!
As I’m sure you’ve noticed, we’ve recently undergone a complete makeover. We’ve created a new logo, as brilliant as the work we’re doing together, and a new website to showcase it all. And with hundreds of supporters around the world, we’ve built a fundraising platform that lets you engage your friends and family in this life changing work. Start networking here!
As we head into this season of gratitude I want to say thank you for standing by us all this time. We’re looking forward to a very bright future.
