As we enter this time of thanks, we want to say how grateful we are for YOUR support.
This year, we've accomplished much good... serving more than 1,000 families and youth with improved driving skills...
...starting a new simulator training program for New York and New Jersey drivers with UPS....
....zeroing in on the Northeast, mobilizing over 100 organizations to practice emergency drills... through BE Safe America...
....and, working with the National Foundation for Women Legislators from Alaska to Maine on helping grassroots Americabe better prepared to handle local emergencies... without caving into fear
With the recent Paris tragedy, we are mobilizing and re-energizing our national preparedness campaign... with plans to hold a'Safety Summit' in Washington, D.C. We're also exploring a 'technology task force' that can focus on the growing dangers fromhacking... and its threat to our infrastructure (AND to each of us, through things like identity theft).
There's a lot of things we want to do. Starting in December, we'll be looking at aiding homeless women veterans and their families,so they have a place to stay for the Christmas holidays... and, we'll be reaching out to Fortune 500 firms to encourage them toplan evacuation or shelter-in-place drills... for the First Quarter of 2016.
ALL of this, plus the SAFE Tomorrows youth education program; Brain Camp 3; and, fighting human trafficking through anawareness campaign - are all areas that we'll be tackling. You can help by volunteering.... or donating funds to Safe America.
Together, we can protect what's priceless: human life. And, be prepared....not scared... for what lies ahead.
