Thank You, Seasons Greetings & 2014 Year in Review
AlphaBet Club Friends,
As the new year is upon us, this is the time of the year to reflect on what we accomplished in 2014. For us that means looking back on the ABC charity projects in India, the improvements in our organization and the 12 [FUN]draising events in Amsterdam, Madrid and by our recently launched Phoenix chapter.
I’m happy to share that 2014, with your support, the AlphaBet Club:
