A Little Change Goes a Long Way: How to Express Your Gratitude This Year

Milagros’ HOBY experience is not unique; in fact, it is more common than people can possibly realize.  HOBY changes young people, regardless of age, geography, ethnicity, socio-economic status, etc., into effective, compassionate and inspiring leaders. Perhaps you already know that through your personal experiences with HOBY.

The season of gratitude and kindness is upon us.  Each year during this time, we reflect on the past year, things we’re grateful for and what we want to accomplish in the coming year.  And each year, during this time, those of us lucky enough to work and volunteer for HOBY feel particularly inspired by the HOBY Ambassadors.  Students like Milagros, who reduced the dropout rate in her school due to unplanned pregnancies by creating a community baby shower program that gives donations of diapers, clothes, baby bottles, along with homework assistance, social support and more.  Because of Milagros, more students in her school are completing their high school education.  Because HOBY inspired her to make a difference.

This is also the season where non-profits tap into the spirit of generosity and ask for additional support.  You’ve likely already received dozens of solicitations.  So what makes HOBY different?  Donations to HOBY allow students like Milagros the opportunity to attend and become inspired. Each year, over 1,000 students are supported due to the generous support of people like you.  People who recognize the impact HOBY has, not just on each individual student, but on their schools, communities and our world.

Please join us this season and inspire more students like Milagros and others.  Help HOBY change the world by creating powerful and impactful leaders and changemakers; leaders with the courage to willingly and enthusiastically accept the challenges in their communities.  Together, through HOBY we will make a difference.

Thank you for your generosity and support.  Wishing you and your families a blessed holiday season.
