Enter for a chance to join Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton on May 1 in New York at the Clinton Foundation Gala.
When I started this Foundation 13 years ago, I knew that in order to succeed, I would have to convince others that helping people live their best life stories is something worthy of their support.
I had big ideas and even bigger hopes, but there was something I just didn’t plan for: the incredible generosity and compassion of people like you.
Your support has made it possible to expand our work faster and touch more lives than I ever thought possible, even in my most ambitious moments.
That’s why I’m especially eager to share this unique opportunity with you: Help continue to push our work forward with a donation by April 15 and be entered to win a truly unforgettable trip for you and a guest to attend our Clinton Foundation Gala in New York City on May 1.
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.
My sincerest thanks,

From the Daily Beast.
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.”
And this sweet tweet from Hillary ….

FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON TO ADDRESS
HIPPY AS IT MARKS 25 YEARS OF SUCCESS
HIPPY—Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters— Helps Parents
Prepare Their Children for Success in School in 21 States
WASHINGTON, D.C.— On April 28, Hillary Rodham Clinton will celebrate the accomplishments of the voluntary home visiting instruction program as HIPPY USA marks its 25th anniversary.
Secretary Clinton’s relationship with HIPPY dates back to the 1980s when she was the First Lady of Arkansas. Recognizing that many families with young children weren’t getting what they needed, she brought the HIPPY program to the state to help teach parents how to prepare their children for school.
HIPPY (Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters) serves thousands of vulnerable families by maximizing the parent-child bond. HIPPY encourages them to work together on structured activities that provide school-ready literacy and math skills. Early and ongoing parental engagement can help avoid costly remedial education or unemployment down the road.
Independent research shows that the HIPPY curriculum, books and parent-child interactions increase student achievement scores and strengthen families.
WHAT: Hillary Rodham Clinton to keynote the HIPPY Avima D. Lombard Award Dinner
WHERE: Kellogg Conference Hotel at Gallaudet University
800 Florida Avenue NE
WHEN: Monday, April 28
Introduction and remarks 7–8 p.m.
Media presets TBA
Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngstersprograms (www.hippyusa.org) focus on family literacy, school readiness and parent involvement. HIPPY helps parents prepare their preschool children to succeed in school. Currently, 135 HIPPY sites in 21 states and the District of Columbia serve 15,000 families.

Hillary teamed up in New York City today with former colleague USAID administrator Dr. Rajiv Shah to inaugurate the U.S. Global Development Lab intended to end extreme poverty by the year 2030.
Today in New York, we launched our Global Development Lab, the new arm of our Agency that will foster science and technology-based solutions to help end extreme poverty by 2030.
Modeled on some of the most innovative and technologically advanced centers for discovery across the country, The ‘Lab’ as we are calling it, brings together a diverse set of partners to help us develop, test, and scale groundbreaking solutions to the greatest challenges known to man. Our goal is to reach over 200 million people through a new Lab-supported global marketplace of innovations in the next five years alone.
To focus the efforts of this talented community, we have outlined nine core areas where science, technology, and innovation can dramatically accelerate progress—from improving child literacy to advancing human rights to expanding financial inclusion through digital services.
And to help build the ranks of a next generation of talented development leaders, we also announced the first-ever class of 62 USAID Research and Innovation Fellows, who will deploy to more than 50 institutions across the world and examine everything from climate data in the Sahel to the impact of pathogens on child nutrition in South Africa.
But we can’t do it alone. If you are excited about the Lab’s vision and want to be part of this bold new approach to development, we want to hear from you!
An unrelated story about a “Cuban Twitter” platform prompted this response from USAID.
