Dear Supporters,

Almost four years ago, I learned just enough about the achievement gap and its personal impact on my childhood to change my life. In the process of addressing many of my personal pain points with the New York City public education system, people rallied around us and helped us incubate the idea for Practice Makes Perfect. Surprisingly, a mentor early on had told me that "you can't help the poor if you are one of them" and, today, I can thankfully admit that he couldn't be further from the truth. Growing up in a single-parent household raised on public assistance is no shear sign of wealth. However, I would make the case that groups most afflicted by a given problem, if empowered, are the most equipped to solve the problems of their own demographic.

This year, I am hoping that you will join me in my race. Unlike in years past, I am running with a much larger vision of one day replacing the ineffective summer school programs for inner-city youth, who grew up just like me, with higher quality Practice Makes Perfect programs. Thank you for your contribution and your support. I look forward to seeing you at the finish line.

Your Friend,

Karim
