Dear friends and family,

Thank you! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I cannot say it enough. Because of you all we reached our goal and every dollar you have given will make a difference in the life of a child with autism or special needs! I started this journey when Michelle grabbed me after I got back from Kenya and somehow or another convinced me that I could run a marthon in 2 and half months as well as raise $5000! I was pumped up and buoyed up by the time she left my office..... and then that night I could not sleep- what in the world had she convinced me to do???! Since then I have had an incredible journey and I have fallen even more in love with Kulture City. They are a unique type of non-profit organization, as Julian said "We flipped the model to one that puts the recipients of the gift on an equal basis with the donors. We also sought to improve the quality of life of autistic children with tangible needs like tablets for communication, sensory-friendly outings, and education and jobs." They have been named one of microsoft's top 10 charities, been given the Toms award, and a winner of Great nonprofits. They not only hand out tools for growth to these children, but they also change the culture surrounding these children by striving for a world of acceptance and understanding.

I get on the plan tomorrow afternoon to head to NYC! I start running at 11:00 am and my finishing goal is ....to cross the finish line ;) While I am running I will be thinking about the children whose lives and environment we are striving to improve. Thank you again for every single dollar you have given, which will touch so many lives! Know that through the purchase of the lifeBOKS every dollar you gave will likely save a life not once, but multiple times!!! you all are all superheros!

Nothing I can say will express my gratitude to you all for your incredible support, so I will simply say "thank you"

Sincerely,
Leslie
