E-Newsletter December 2010

It's been a little more than a year since we first launched this website, and what better time than the holiday season to look back on all we've done together. Thanks to the generosity of our travelers, associates, and community partners, the Foundation has raised nearly one million dollars in 2010—which is helping to change people's lives in Haiti, in Boston, and, of course, throughout the world we travel.

Your support means the world to us, and we can't thank you enough. From the bottom of our hearts, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
