E-Newsletter November 2011

As we celebrate Thanksgiving, we've been reflecting upon how fortunate we are to be able to do what we do—and we are so incredibly thankful for each and every one of our donors and supporters. So far this year, we've raised more than $900,000 in donations, which will go a long way toward changing lives in schools and villages around the world. It's an unprecedented milestone, which proves that you share our desire to leave the world a better place than we found it. For all that you do, we thank you—on Thanksgiving, and every other day of the year.
