E-Newsletter June 2010
At Grand Circle, we've always been serious about celebrating our successes—and when our success directly impacts the lives of others, it's really something to celebrate. This month, we exceeded our second fundraising goal for the Women's Sewing Village in Bearat, Egypt, by more than $4500—and we couldn't have done it without our generous travelers. Read on to find out what we've done, what's next, and where else we can make a difference.

Now, your contribution helps more than ever, since we're matching donations through July 22, 2010.
