“I’m here because I believe so much in Save the Children’s early childhood programs, and I am hoping that you will continue to support them,” Jennifer expressed.

“Our kids entering kindergarten are scoring at the 90th percentile…” Mark added. “And these are kids that are struggling, that are very much at risk.”
