IMG_3084.jpgDear Friends,

I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. As some of you may already know, in May of this year I took over the duties of President of the foundation from Da-Jin Sun. Formerly, I was a board member and treasurer of the foundation since 2010. Da-Jin will remain on the board of directors and will continue to play an integral and driving force behind the foundation, but we felt the time was right for this transition to both increase my involvement, as well as to focus Da-Jin’s time where it is most needed.

For those of you that don’t know me, I live in the Sacramento, CA area with my wife and precocious young daughter. My day job is leading the state’s air quality modeling efforts to improve air quality in California, as well as holding an adjunct faculty position at Washington State University, which takes me to China on a regular basis to work with local environmental agencies there.

This past year, I was able to take my first trip to meet some of the children receiving support from the foundation in Pan An, Zhejiang province. Although I was only able to meet with a fraction of the children supported by the foundation, it was heartening to see first-hand how much of a difference our support is making in their lives and how grateful they are for the opportunity we are affording them!

I would like to personally thank all of you for your continued support through your generous donations and amazon.com purchases! Together, it truly is possible to make a difference in these children’s lives.

Sincerely,


Jeremy Avise, President
