A MESSAGE TO OUR SUPPORTERS FROM CEO, CHRIS BOLTON Dear friends, What an incredible 2013 we have had so far! We’ve launched a clinic in Isiolo, Kenya, that serves families infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. We’ve expanded water and sanitation coverage in Agali sub-county with the goal of 90% coverage by 2015, and we’ve also piloted composting latrines in northern Rwanda with the goal of 100% coverage for 7,000 people within the next 4 years. In addition, we have added new members to our team, announced a new board chair, and moved into a new office space. All of this has been possible through your generous gifts of time, talents, and resources! As you might remember, last year we made a change to the start of our fiscal year. We have included a snapshot of our financials for that nine-month period, and you should expect to see an update for the entire 2013 fiscal year the beginning January 2014. We’re so excited to report incredible momentum here in Nashville and with our partners in Africa. As we enter into the fall of 2013, we’re focusing on a few big movements here on the home front: • Look for our online Back to School campaign to raise awareness and to provide clean water to the children of Africa. • We’re launching our official Blood:Water Mission volunteer program in 18 regions across the US to spread the story of the need and solutions in Africa. • We’re also putting the finishing touches on our 2014 Marketing and Engagement plan to drive even more synergy between the two departments, which means better messaging, better connections, and ultimately better results. I hope you can sense that our excitement is grounded in real progress. We are more grateful than ever for your support and for partnering with us in this mission. With you, we have real hope that we can end the HIV/AIDS and water crises in our generation. With utmost gratitude, Chris Bolton, CEO
