A Message from Our Founder…

static1-squarespace-12

In keeping with our democracy, America has been loudly voicing our differences. In doing so, our children have recently been exposed to language and behaviors which we hope they will find unacceptable. Many of us have expressed our fears and listened to our children’s confusion. Please remember to hold close your values and the values that you know, as humans and humanitarians, to be due north on your moral compass. Inclusion, empathy and compassion are the ideals by which most families live and raise their children. Now, more than ever, we must “do unto others as you would have others do unto you”.

For the students with whom we work, most especially the recipients, there is a great need for support, and, now, perhaps an even greater need for equality in education and empowerment by service.

The future is always uncertain, and feels more so today, but we will never lose the ability to positively effect another person’s life by being kind. Together we will continue to fight inequalities and we WILL create a better world.

With my warmest wishes for a brighter tomorrow,

Meredith
