How to save the world

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."
Harriet Tubman

We've always known that it takes one person to change the world, each in his or her own unique and important way. 
But sometimes it takes three sisters.

Mazal tov (congratulations) and Kol Hakavod (well done) to Ilyssa Maisano, Lori Ingber and Jennifer Zairi, on the upcoming third gala event for the Growing Hearts of Africa Foundation. Besides other worthy causes, much of the Foundation's generosity has gone to JDC's life-saving work in Ethiopia: building schools and supporting the life-saving work of JDC's Dr. Rick Hodes. Spines repaired, hearts healed, schools built ... lives changed.

The Joint is proud to have the Growing Hearts Foundation as a supporter of our work around the world. They've allowed us to respond to crises, man-made and natural, wherever they occur. 

Read about Ilyssa, Lori and Jennifer's work here, and if you want to see how philanthropic action can change lives, come to their amazing event on Saturday night, May 10th
Dr. Hodes will be the keynote speaker, and it will be a terrific opportunity to make a difference.
