A Welcome from Alan & Harriet

Nothing humbles us more than seeing how our dedicated travelers, associates, and community partners put the Foundation's mission of changing people's lives into action. Last month, 140 volunteers did just that in our largest community service event, Rebuilding Together Boston (RTB). You can read about RTB and all of the Foundation's activities around the world in our Annual Report, which will be arriving in homes soon. We hope you enjoy seeing what you have accomplished through your support of us.
