I cannot run a marathon or bike 1000 miles, but I can do this: write a poem every day this month to raise money for the Center for New Americans. Please consider making a donation of any amount to support their programs, including free English classes and a range of services for immigrants in western Massachusetts. Thank you for being part of this wonderful project. http://www.cnam.org for more info.
I am the granddaughter of immigrants who came to the United States seeking safety from persecution and the chance to live and work beyond subsistence. I cannot imagine the courage required to make that journey - then, or now.
Please help support the Center for New Americans to continue to build a community that welcomes newcomers and all the richness that they bring.
grazie & a hartsikn dank
