Every time you support the Clinton Foundation you help someone, somewhere in the world live up to their God-given potential.
It could be a woman in Haiti, whose small business gets the boost that it needs to flourish and grow. It could be a baby born HIV-free in Kenya, thanks to the lifesaving drugs that prevent transmission of the virus. Or it could be a farmer in Malawi, who is able to both support his family and help his local environment by planting trees as part of our Trees of Hope program.
You help us achieve all of this and more, every time you make a gift.
With your support, the Clinton Foundation is improving millions of lives around the world. Your donation today will help to:
Empower women and girls to reach their full potential through my new program, No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project.
Improve the health and well-being of children ages zero to five and close the word gap, so that more of America’s children are prepared to succeed in the 21st century through our partnership called Too Small to Fail.
Provide greater access to low-cost, high-quality HIV/AIDS treatment for millions in South Africa, Cambodia, Indonesia, Jamaica, Mozambique, Ethiopia, and around the world.
Strengthen health systems in developing countries and improve global markets for medicines and diagnostics – ensuring lifesaving care and treatment can reach the people who need them the most.
Bring healthier food options to schools for children in the United States.
Young parents who live near their own parents are lucky. Some people we know are unapologetically enthusiastic to become grandparents and share their gifts and experience with their children and grandkids. We wish them the best of luck in that aspiration.
Many of us remember childhood time with our grandparents with fondness: almost like our parents but with more time to play and maybe more willing to spoil us a little.
But grandparents also play a very functional role in today’s society. More than three million children in the United States are cared for every day by grandparents while their parents go to work.
As more parents enter the workforce in order stay afloat in a tough economy, and as formal child care becomes more expensive, grandparents and other relatives have become the go-to source for child care. Changing family structures have also contributed to more grandparents becoming primary caregivers, in some instances taking over when their grandchildren’s parents are unable to provide care.
Very young children can benefit greatly from spending quality time with their grandparents. For example, several studies have shown that children whose grandparents talk, read and sing often to them show better vocabulary and emotional development, and are better able to manage stress.
Experts recommend several ways in which grandparents can be more successful in their role as caregivers. First, it’s important to establish mutual trust and respect with parents so that conflicts don’t arise. Additionally, grandparents can positively contribute to their grandchildren’s learning by sharing activities that promote their social, mental and emotional growth. Simple things like singing traditional lullabies, telling family histories or playing games can strengthen bonds with young grandchildren, and help them prepare to learn.

On her fifth visit to the west coast since launching her public speaking career a year ago, Hillary delivered the keynote today at Marketo’s 2014 Marketing Nation Summit in San Francisco. She said that she is thinking about running in 2016 and will continue to think about it. This article provides some context and perspective.
“I am obviously flattered and deeply honored to have people ask me and people encourage me. And I am thinking about it,” Clinton said in San Francisco, per NBC’s Andrew Rafferty. “But I’m going to continue to think about it for a while.” Then came the doubt part, with Clinton saying the political back-and-forth she observed as Obama’s secretary of state gave her pause about waging another presidential campaign. “I would be the first to say we’re having a political period of, frankly, dysfunction,” she added. “I saw it from afar as secretary and it was disheartening and even embarrassing to see people arguing about letting us default on our debt.”
Senior politics reporter Jeff Mapes is covering Hillary Clinton’s talk tonight before a sold-out audience of 3,000 at Portlandâs Keller Auditorium. We’ll be updating this post tonight, then Jeff will post a complete story. He posted a preview story on Clinton earlier Tuesday.
Photographer Michael Lloyd is also at the event.
The talk kicks off the World Affairs Council of Oregonâs International Speakers series. It’s the second stop of a West Coast speaking tour for Clinton, the former secretary of state and odds-on favorite to win the Democratic presidential nomination if she chooses to run in 2016. The talk begins at 7:30 p.m.
Will you be the one to join Hillary, Chelsea, and our host and friend, Hugh Jackman, backstage?
This is an amazing chance, not just to talk to Hillary, Chelsea, and me about the exciting plans we have for the Foundation in 2014, but to actually be the reason that those plans come to fruition.
The Clinton Foundation depends on individual donors like you to increase access to lifesaving immunizations in developing countries, provide healthy learning environments in U.S. schools, and bring advanced farming techniques to smallholder farmers in Malawi.
Your donations are essential to our work, as are your support and enthusiasm.
Hillary, Chelsea, and I would love to see you at the Gala on May 1, almost as much as we’d love to see you join us in working to make the world a better place. The first step is to make your gift today.
At the kickoff of the Women in the World Summit, Clinton said Russia needed to be put in its “proper place,” with IMF chief Christine Lagarde at her side.
At the opening evening of the fifth annual Women in the World Summit, Hillary Clinton and International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde, whom summit founder Tina Brown introduced as “first among women,” were greeted with a standing ovation at New York’s Lincoln Center.
Each is the most popular female politician in her country. Each grew up with brothers and learned how to elbow her way in and operate in a man’s world. Each champions women in their public pronouncements and policies, and when Clinton and Lagarde appeared together at a panel moderated by Thomas L. Friedman, together they called for greater political and economic participation by women around the globe. “Women,” Clinton said from the stage, “are the world’s most untapped resource.”
This private blog is in no way affiliated with Hillary Clinton, the State Department, or any campaign. It is not about a political party or an election. It is about Hillary Clinton's work. It is intended solely to support, promote, and appreciate Hillary Clinton's efforts and not to press into further service a woman who has served so brilliantly and selflessly over her lifetime. As she makes the transition from top diplomat to citizen diplomat, we hope to find ways to continue sharing her achievements with her followers all over the world. Whatever the future brings, she will remain our role model, our North Star, and our conscience.

@U.S. Senate: Time to ratify LOST!
"... ratify the Law of the Sea Convention, which has provided the international framework for exploring these new opportunities in the Arctic. We abide by the international law that undergirds the convention, but we think the United States should be a member, because the convention sets down the rules of the road that protect freedom of navigation, provide maritime security, serve the interests of every nation that relies on sea lanes for commerce and trade, and also sets the framework for exploration for the natural resources that may be present in the Arctic." -HRC, 06-03-12, Tromso Norway

She would NEVER have allowed social safety nets to be "on the table."
Hillary! Leadership we need!
