Dear Tuesday's Chiildren families and friends,
Did you know that there were over 400 charities formed in the ashes of 9/11? Did you know that today there are only a handful left standing?
Indeed, Tuesday’s Children is still the only charity prioritizing the needs of 9/11 children. We made a simple and solemn Promise to those who carry the weight of the devastation of that day: We Promised to be there to support them into adulthood. This is “The Promise."
As time passes, donors tire, the economy has entered a recession and some simply want to turn the page. Yet, the Board and the Staff of Tuesday’s Children keep on serving because they know that 9/11 kids don’t have the choice to turn the page. They carry it with them. It is a part of who they are.
Clearly, there is so much more work to be done: The youngest 9/11 kids are only eight and nine years old.
Through Project COMMON BOND, our teenagers are giving back to others around the world who have suffered from acts of terrorism.
Please join me, with your help we can keep The Promise,
David Weild IV
Chairman of the Board
