General Johnson, Thank you …
General Johnson,

Thank you so much for your contribution! Your support allowed Leave No Veteran Behind to finish second in the national fundraising challenge sponsored by Craig Newmark, the Founder of Craigslist, and hosted by

Specifically, your donation will go to support Leave No Veteran Behind's (LNVB) successful youth safety initiative called: Safe Passage. Where for four consecutive years, while working in some of America's most violent neighborhoods, LNVB's Safe Passage program has decreased disciplinary actions amongst students and decreased crime before and after school dismissal according to Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Police Department.

At the same time, the University of Chicago and its "5 Essentials Report" shows that LNVB's work has helped create positive learning environments throughout Chicago. Where in their latest report, LNVB's impact has increased students self-reporting that “people in the neighborhood can be trusted” and “I feel safe outside around school and traveling between home and school" every year that they've served the community.

Please watch a recent segment of National Public Radio overlaid with images of our Safe Passage providers at work to verify our work:

Also, here is a link to the University of Chicago's latest research:

Looking into the future, Leave No Veteran Behind is poised to become a leader with respect to safe guarding thousands of students during the largest school closing in the history of American public education; serving Chicago's Albany Park, Bronzeville, Hermosa, Hyde Park, Kenwood, and Uptown communities during the 2013-2014 school year geographically assigned across all areas of the City of Chicago. At the same time, LNVB will use the same resources many times over to also run the largest Veteran transitional-work program in the nation; directly employing more than 95 Veterans every.

Leave No Veteran Behind's staff and board members look forward to creating a strong bond between you and our organization's mission. Please let me know how we can strengthen our relationship going forward:!

All the Best,

- Pete Kalenik
