Thank President

Obama Foundation
Hi Derwell,

There’s something invigorating about the new year—the fresh start, the opportunity to take up something new, the possibility of what’s ahead.

As Michelle and I reflect on the last year and look toward the next one, we’re encouraged by the stories of progress that came from 2019.

If you haven’t already, I encourage you to take a look at the work of the Foundation over the past year. The stories of compassion, resilience, and connection couldn’t be more energizing.

Start with our Year in Photos—a collection of images from 2019 that showcase the incredible work that your support has made possible.

It’s because of your commitment that we can invest in emerging leaders and amplify the impact they’re already making. It’s because of you that we can highlight and support the community leaders of today—and help them become the global leaders of tomorrow. And it’s because of you that we’re bringing the Obama Presidential Center to life.

I want to thank you for every ounce of energy, passion, and guidance you bring to our mission. Thank you for sharing our voice and vision for a better tomorrow. And thank you for making 2019 an incredible year.

But I have one more ask of you.

On a day of fresh starts and new beginnings, I challenge you to take a step toward change in your community. If everyone reading this can commit to one positive change for their neighborhood in 2020, our collective impact will be extraordinary. Even if we don’t always feel it ourselves, I know that we’ll keep making the world a little bit better in the next year and in the many, many years to come.

Here’s to another year full of hope,
