Holidays are Here! A message from our Founder.
To all of the DoGooders out there, Happy Holidays!
Like you, I am preparing for a season of family, celebration and of course, giving. Also like you, I have so much to be thankful for. This year one was of firsts, joy and lots of bumps in the road. They say that nothing easy is worth doing. I couldn't agree more.
I was given the amazing opportunity to marry Rachel, an amazing woman who shares my passions. My son, Chris, (the inspiration for it all) is in first grade and talks about becoming President. I also have great pride in the work we have accomplished: Because of You.
Two years ago we set out to change the world (hey-we aim low). Of course at the beginning we didn't know how that would look. We can now confidently say, it's closer than we think.

In the last few months WE have accomplished some extraordinary goals. Through our campaign with Thistle Farms, 12 women received a scholarship to go back to school in Tennessee. In September, more than 2,500 Tanzanians received medical treatment for malaria through our partnership with Malaika for Life. In October, we helped build 2 water wells through the sale of sustainable water bottles. Those wells will supply more than 20,000 people in Nepal with clean water.
This month is no different. Whether it's building homes for needy families in NY or helping out the Safe Return Program for family members with Alzheimers, I never dreamed we would accomplish so much in so little time.
While a list of thank you's would be a mile long, including my deep appreciation for my dedicated staff, I am going to ask each of us to keep our momentum going. Share the work we have done with friends and family, participate in our campaigns, and teach those around you that changing the world is closer than we think. The message will go a long way and so too, will the amazing projects we have brought to life.
