E-Newsletter November/December 2012

As we look forward to 2013, we'd also like to reflect upon the year gone by. So far in 2012, 9,898 generous travelers like you have contributed $774,096—with impacts that resonate around the world. Because of your support, students in Zimbabwe are learning about environmental protection … Bedouin women in Israel have an opportunity to join a small handcraft business … and children in Argentina can wear lifejackets on their boat ride to school. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for making each year brighter than the last for these communities.
