Your Impact in 2015… Thank You & ABC 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 2015. We’re looking back at a great year for ABC and feel proud of what we have achieved with our ABC charity projects, the improvements in our organization and the 15 [FUN]draising events in Amsterdam, Madrid and Phoenix. Thanks to your support, we were able to make a lasting change in the lives of many children in need. Through Education we can offer them a better chance at the future they deserve.
