Dear Friends and Supporters of 100 Friends. Greetings from Thailand.
It seems incredible that it’s been 25 years since 100 Friends began. From the start until now, we’ve raised more than $1.3 million and the work goes on thanks to your ongoing support.
This past year has brought change since Rossel and I got married last June in California. She has already accompanied me as my assistant on numerous missions with 100 Friends and we recently set off to Asia again for another six months on the road helping those who need it most.
This is a special, expanded 25th Anniversary issue and we’re not only bringing you stories about the folks your dollars support, but bringing you letters from many of the people and organizations we’ve helped over the years (stories with little postage marks). We’re also bringing back some of our favorite stories, many with updates from people we first met in the early ’90s (“eye” marked) and some new friends who are recent additions to the 100 Friends family. We hope you find this enjoyable and inspiring. As always, thank you for the incredible support and goodwill over the last 25 years. Truly, we can’t do this without you.[gview file=”https://100friends.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/100friends-newsletter-2014-5-Winter-25-Anniversary-Edition1.pdf”]
