It's the season for showing thanks and we wanted to be sure we expressed ours!
First and foremost, we would like to thank a very important group of individuals for all their hard work over the past 18 months. Without a Board of Directors, a non-profit organization cannot exist. If it were not for Vivian, Robert, Miguel, Ismael, Cynthia, Beth, Tamara, and Omar, our organization would not have the opportunity to do what we do. Thank you all for taking time away from your busy schedules to ensure our success. We appreciate you and look forward to our continued work together to grow and learn!
Secondly, we would like to thank our three partners for all the support they have given us over the past six months. GEAR UP 4 LA, Hub Cities Consortium, and NewDef LA - we thank you for believing in our mission and for spreading awareness behind what we do. We appreciate you and are proud to be your partner!
To all the administrators and teachers that welcomed us into your schools, we thank you. We thank you for allowing us to do our work. It is because of your belief in our organization that we have the opportunities to fulfill our organization's mission. We look forward to hopefully continuing our work with your schools in 2015 and wish you continued success.
Our supporters! We thank you for all the donations you sent our way throughout the year. Your donations allow us to get out and make the difference that we make. We appreciate you and look forward to seeing you all at our 2nd Annual Silent Auction/Benefit in Los Angeles on May 2nd, 2015!
Lastly, to the kids. It is because of you that we wake up every morning and put our best foot forward towards creating experiences that motivate and inspire you to reach your highest potential. Thank you to all the students who we laughed with and learned from. To the students who we have yet to reach, we look forward to sharing our journey with you.
I hope that everyone has a safe and fun-filled Thanksgiving with loved ones and that we all give and receive the thanks that we rightfully deserve.
