I am so proud of the impact the Clinton Foundation has made. When I ran for president, this top-rated global charity was dragged into a political mud fight. In the two years since, people with an axe to grind have continued to try to undermine its work by attacking them and making false accusations. But the Foundation has continued to help people across America and around the world, undeterred by these baseless assaults.

I’m inspired by this steadfast dedication to improve lives. There are real issues in society needing attention that the people of the Clinton Foundation work hard to solve every day. Despite the attacks, they are staying focused on what really matters.

Join with me in resisting the vitriol. Sign up today and get involved in work that matters.

For the past 18 years, the Clinton Foundation has dramatically and demonstrably helped millions of people around the world by working with partners to improve lives, from making HIV/AIDS treatment available across the developing world and helping children in America’s schools get healthier meals to working with faith leaders across America to help stem the scourge of opioid abuse.

Today, the Foundation’s work continues to improve lives by working with partners and providing programs that create economic opportunity, improve public health, and inspire civic engagement and service.

Next week, I will have the opportunity to join Bill and more than 500 partners from business, government, and the philanthropic community as we convene in Puerto Rico for the CGI Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery. Together, we are helping Puerto Rico and communities across the Caribbean to build back better after the devastating 2017 hurricanes; we’re providing resources, practical solutions, and technical assistance that is making a real difference.

This work is important and we need your help. Add your name and get involved.

Making a difference in people’s lives takes hard work, leadership, and resources. Now more than ever, we need your support to help the Clinton Foundation continue its impact. Join us and together we can continue to help change lives.

Sincerely,

Hillary

Rather than stay in to watch President Donald Trump‘s prime-time address to the nation about what he’s been calling the crisis on the border, Bill and Hillary Clinton enjoyed a date night on Broadway instead.

The former commander-in-chief and the former secretary of state attended a star-studded premiere of the new play Choir Boy, which tells the story of a gifted gay black teen at an all-male prep school.

The Clintons were all smiles as they posed up with their ‘Playbill’ booklet at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on West 47th Street Tuesday night.

Wishing the Clinton family a warm and wonderful Christmas. Merry Christmas, also, to all members of the Still4Hill community.

Here are some images of Christmases past.

These photos are not in a particular order. Most of them came from Twitter where the camera attention was almost fully upon the guest side where the presidential lineup was seated rather than on the family side.

Sully said his goodbyes at the Capitol. With the former president since last April when Barbara Bush passed away, he will go on to serve other veterans.

Hillary always has a fascination with church ceilings.

The day belonged to the Bush family, but understandably there were moments. Here is one.

Statement

Hillary and I mourn the passing of President George H.W. Bush, and give thanks for his great long life of service, love, and friendship.

I will be forever grateful for the friendship we formed. From the moment I met him as a young governor invited to his home in Kennebunkport, I was struck by the kindness he showed to Chelsea, by his innate and genuine decency, and by his devotion to Barbara, his children, and their growing brood.

Few Americans have been—or will ever be—able to match President Bush’s record of service to the United States and the joy he took every day from it; from his military service in World War II, to his work in Congress, the United Nations, China, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Vice Presidency and the Presidency, where he worked to move the post Cold War world toward greater unity, peace, and freedom.

He never stopped serving. I saw it up close, working with him on tsunami relief in Asia and here at home after Hurricane Katrina. His remarkable leadership and great heart were always on full display.

I am profoundly grateful for every minute I spent with President Bush and will always hold our friendship as one of my life’s greatest gifts.

Our hearts and prayers are with George, Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro, their families, and the entire Bush clan.

Apparently, appropriately, the Texas event has been postponed.

Unfortunately, there is no video of this one that I have found.

The United States is making a mistake by moving in the opposite direction of Canada on cultural diversity, immigration and social harmony, former U.S. president Bill Clinton told a receptive audience in Montreal on Wednesday night.

“Canada has done such a good job of both managing its contemporary diversity and it has a very interesting immigration system,” he said at the Bell Centre, where he and his wife, former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton, made their second stop on a paid speaking tour of North America.

The 13-stop tour, An Evening with the Clintons, began in Toronto on Tuesday.

“And yet it’s still Canada,” Clinton added. “And I just think that you can model the idea that you can become more diverse and still keep your culture and your values. It’s really very good for a modern economy.”

Canada has the capacity to embrace and influence the world in a positive way, he said.

This was a refreshing, honest, humorous evening with the Clintons. They had serious answers on the Bin Laden raid, North Korea, despots in general, Putin in particular, and climate change – among other topics. Lighter notes touched on their courtship and time at Yale.
