As the clock ticks toward the new year, Iâ€™ve been reflecting on all weâ€™ve accomplished at the Clinton Foundation over the past twelve months â€“ and all that we are eager to do in 2018.
I am thinking about the medical center I visited in Jacksonville that is working with the Clinton Health Matters Initiative and various partners to help members of the community deal with their addiction and build a better future; and the emergency shelter I visited a few weeks ago in Puerto Rico that is receiving badly needed assistance through the work of the Clinton Foundation and partners like Direct Relief.
Helping people improve their lives, overcome challenges, and develop their abilities so that they can choose the life they want to lead â€“ both today and well into the future â€“ is the ultimate empowerment, and thatâ€™s exactly what our programs and initiatives are helping individuals do every day.
But, we have more we want to do and together we have to keep going. Itâ€™s what I tell our partners on the ground and what Iâ€™m asking of all of you â€“ to keep going, and to keep lending your support because 2018 is a whole new year â€“ with new opportunities to reach more people and change more lives.
When we tackle our challenges together, thereâ€™s no telling what we can do. I like to say that addition and multiplication always work better than division and subtraction. Every time I have the chance to visit our programs and talk with people who are benefiting from the work we do, Iâ€™m inspired by how much good can be accomplished when we join forces, share our resources, and work together to multiply our impact.
Today, I want to help multiply your impact, which is why I have committed to tripling any donations up to $200,000 until the end of the year.
If youâ€™ve been planning to make a donation to the Clinton Foundation, but havenâ€™t yet, now is the time to give because for just a few short hours, your gift is worth three times as much, but only until midnight.
Thereâ€™s so much more to come in 2018, and with your help, I canâ€™t wait to get started.
With best wishes for a happy and healthy new year.
Thanks to the work that weâ€™ve done together over the past 16 years to create economic opportunity, improve public health, and inspire civic engagement across the U.S. and around the world, the Clinton Foundation has received top ratings from three leading charity watchdog groups: Charity Navigator, CharityWatch, and GuideStar. The Foundation is also accredited by the Better Business Bureau. These ratings help you know that we make the most of every single dollar that you contribute.
Make your gift before midnight and I will triple-match it. bbis.clintonfoundation.org/2017/20171231nd
