E-Newsletter January/February 2013

As we head toward spring, we're happy to know that good things are cropping up all around the world—from gardens and a poultry farm in Zimbabwe to cotton plantations in tsunami-devastated Japan. We also applaud Boston associates who recently braved the aftermath of a blizzard to donate blood, as well as friends of the Foundation—from travelers who gave of themselves in Tanzania to a professional financier who is leveraging her long and successful career to help youths in need. It's people like these, even more than the return of spring, that warm our hearts!
