“Every child deserves the best possible chance at success – and they can’t do it alone,” wrote Hillary Clinton in an email to Clinton Foundation supporters. "They need a lot of helping hands along the way. Ever since my days as a young law student at the Children’s Defense Fund and the Yale Child Study Center, I’ve believed that when it comes to our kids, we’re all in this together. That’s why I’m delighted that the Clinton Foundation has made it a priority to help children all over the world pursue their God-given potential.
“With your support, we’re working to prevent babies from contracting HIV; reduce childhood obesity; and promote new research on the science of children’s brain development, early learning, and early health.
“With so much work to be done across all of our projects, Bill has decided to personally match every tax-deductible donation to the Clinton Foundation until the end of 2013. Can you help us kick off 2014 stronger than ever? Every donation made, until December 31st, will be matched.
“Over the past decade, I have marveled at how quickly the Foundation has grown, and how much good it has done. And I know the best is yet to come.
“We have big plans for 2014. Our new Too Small to Fail initiative will help parents give our youngest children a good start in school and in life. No Ceilings will take on what I believe is the great unfinished business of the 21st century — helping women and girls achieve full participation in every aspect of our society. And we’re going to take a look at economic development issues as well, particularly how to help young people get the skills and support they need to find good and fulfilling jobs. Across all our initiatives, we’ll be helping more people in more places solve problems and seize opportunities faster, leaner, and better.
“These aren’t small goals, but we’ve never shied away from tough problems. The lesson of the last decade at the Clinton Foundation is that, with your support, there are no limits to what we can achieve together. And in 2014, as we expand our work into new areas, we will need your help more than ever.
“There’s no better time to lend your support for the work ahead. Remember, from now until the end of the year your donation will be matched, dollar-for-dollar.”
