“2012 has been quite a year,” he wrote. "We broke ground on a new soy production facility in Rwanda. We have performed 45,000 cataract surgeries in Peru. More than 4,200 new jobs have been created in Colombia as a result of our efforts to help small producers connect with bigger markets. In Haiti, we brought together more than 1,600 investors and donors resulting in more than $150 million in investment to spur recovery and economic growth. Here in the United States, we’ve expanded our healthy schools program to 15,000 schools and we’re growing our retrofit program to help more businesses and homeowners save energy costs while also combating climate change.
“And that’s just the start. Last month, we announced a brand new program – the Clinton Health Matters Initiative – to empower people of all ages across the U.S. to live a healthier lifestyle and to inspire individuals, communities, and corporations to make health and wellness a priority.
“All of these things are making the world a better place, and all of them have been accomplished because of supporters like you. Thank you!
“In the coming year, I hope you’ll continue to share your gifts when and where you can, to give new hope to those who need it, and to foster positive change in your own backyard and in regions around the world.
“I wish you and your family a healthy and happy holiday season, and all the best in the coming new year.”
