Story

Friends,

This year I am joining the Sesame Workshop Leadership Council. Most of you know the beloved Sesame characters from your own childhoods, but probably don't know as much about the work they are doing all over the globe with children. Sesame Workshop is the non-profit educational organization behind Sesame Street and much more.A few examples of their incredible work:

  • USA: Arming military families with love, laughter, and practical tools for deployment.
  • South Africa: Taking on a fearsome epidemic with a feisty Muppet, Kami, who’s HIV positive.
  • Syria: Partnering with the International Rescue Committee to bring the 9 million children in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq the support they need to learn, grow and thrive. For this work, Sesameand the IRC were recently named the winner of the MacArthur Foundation’s “100&Change” competition, which will allow them to create “the largest early childhood intervention in the history of humanitarian response."

Because I love this results-driven organization, I’m hosting a fundraising event this November at the Midtown Swerve spin studio.
