E-Newsletter November 2010
At this time of year, we always take the time to reflect on the many things we have to be thankful for—and Grand Circle Foundation is always at the top of that list. Being able to give back to the world we travel—to the world that has given so much to us—has been a lifelong dream of ours, and it never could have been a reality without the support of the travelers, associates, and community partners who share in our vision of changing people's lives.

We put together a little video to express our thanks—please take a moment to view it here. Thank you for all that you do.
