Dear Child Foundation supporters,
Each year seems to pass more quickly than the last, especially this year since we were very busy in helping more children go to school, and assisted more children who needed medical attention to receive the necessary treatments in order to live a healthy life.
We are ending the year 2014 by increasing the number of children we support to 7,000, and in order to reach this number, a lot needed to be done. Behind the scenes, we have discussed how to increase number of children that we can support, and I hope that I will be able to report to you by the end of 2015 that our number has increased to 8,000, and hopefully even more.
We are happy to say that we have achieved all of our goals for this year. We increased the number of children we support, we received an OFAC license from the US Treasury Department that allows us to send $2 Million dollars to children we support in Iran, we finished building a school in the earthquake stricken area of Varzaghan, we opened a new center in Uremia where children with cancer and their families can stay for free during their medical treatment, we received the best possible rating for a charity from Charity Navigator and GuideStar, and we opened our new office in Los Angeles that allows us to increase our presence and services in Southern California.
All of these accomplishments (and many more) could not have been possible without your support, and I don’t just mean your financial support. Every time you give us a call or send us an e-mail we become more encouraged and double our efforts to provide you with additional information about children you support or increase our support for those who have none.
But, as we approaching the end of the year, I want to ask you to take advantage of this opportunity to send us an additional donation in order to, not only receive its 2014 tax benefit, but also help us for additional plans that we have for the future. Your participation in our End of Year Appeal is crucial to Child Foundation’s growth.
I also want you to know that far more important than any achievement we have made is the fact that we have supporters like you who have stayed with us during all of these years.
Thank you in advance for your support and have a wonderful and safe holiday.
