22.12.2019 | BY KATIJA ALADIN

Tis' the season for celebrating! Check out some of the key insights from this year.

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, jack frost nipping at your nose... well that's how I'm spending Christmas in Canada! I am extremely excited to be writing this Christmas article. December is a month packed full of holidays, and no matter what you celebrate it's a great time to reconnect and give thanks to the amazing people in your life. 

At HundrED, we are lucky to have such a robust, passionate and enthusiastic community of innovators, funders, implementers, Ambassadors and Youth Ambassadors that represent every continent in the world! How many people can say that?! We see our community as more than just a community but as friends and family that support, help, and encourage each other to continue to push the envelope and truly reach our goal of every child to flourish by the year 2030. We therefore extend our warmest thank you to everyone who has been on our journey with us, whether you are new or have been travelling alongside us for a while, we are grateful for you!
