Dearest Friends and Family of Future Roots Project,
We have so much to be grateful for this Holiday Season. The last year proved to mark the beginning of a new chapter in the Future Roots story. Not only have we furthered our mission of providing educational, artistic, and health initiatives to impoverished communities in Nicaragua, but we have also officially accomplished our goal of becoming a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. This, of course, is big news for both the Future Roots Project and you, our cherished and long-time supporters because, now, every dollar that you choose to donate is 100% tax-deductible!
In addition to this big change, our newest collaborator, Timothy Daly, will bring a unique, community-focused artistic project to the Laguna de Apoyo in the beginning of 2017 to expand Future Roots Project’s commitment to provide access to a quality arts education to the children of Nicaragua.
As we enter into this season of togetherness we remember that each of you has touched our lives in some way and for that, we cannot be more grateful. Know that you are in our thoughts and our hearts this Holiday Season!____________________________________________________________________
Speaking of togetherness… let’s get together in the New Year! Our very own Jaime Belden will be returning to Minnesota in late January and we would like to re-connect with you, our family and friends. We invite you to the family home of Jaime in Robbinsdale to share refreshments and to talk with you about our year and what is on the horizon Future Roots Project in 2017 and beyond! Mark your shiny new calendars! The get-together will be on January 23, 2017 from 6-7:30pm.
If you are interested in attending, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and how many guests you would like to bring. We will get back to you with the specifics. We thought that this informal get-together would be a great way to reconnect with you and we would be honored if you could attend.Thank you again for your loving support and we will see you in the New Year! We love you!
With gratitude and kindest appreciation,
Jaime, Elizabeth, and Timothy of Future Roots Project
