Dear friends & partners,
Christmas is coming to town! It is my hope that you are well rested and have a great holiday season with family and loved ones. I want to thank you for your support and warm words of welcome, as I transitioned into my leadership role at LIN. During my first 5 months as the ED at LIN, I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to get to know our partners at a deeper level, and discuss potential collaboration to build a stronger Community together.
There have been ups and downs, of course, yet the team and our programs have remained robust and impactful. We are finishing out the year feeling full of happiness, for our achievements as a team at LIN, and in our partnerships with all of you.
Wow, 10 years of LIN Center for Community Development working together with local nonprofits, engaged volunteers, and thoughtful corporations, all wanting to serve the Community in Vietnam. We are so happy to have made it this far, and so grateful to you, for being there along the way. Now we are excited to kick off the beginning of another 10 year journey with you, a journey that will lead to increased opportunities and access to information, capacity and resources. 2020 is around the corner, and we cannot wait for a year full of partnership, exciting new campaigns to promote Community engagement, and impactful programs.
Happy holidays from your partners at LIN!
