As you celebrate the holidays I hope you’ll join me in raising a glass to our shared success in changing lives in real and meaningful ways:
To Julio, Rosmery and Marcela who graduated from high school this year (a goal less than 10% of youth achieve),
To Yeltsin who discovered his gift to teach,
To Juana, Teresa, and Ana, first-year reading promoters who found their voices and now radiate self-confidence,
To the one thousand children who adore and eagerly await the teens who read to them each day,
And to you for making the world a better place!
Warm wishes to you and yours this holiday season,
