CGSGI Celebrates Two-Year Anniversary

Today, the Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative (CGSGI) marks its two-year anniversary with two major announcements. In Colombia, CGSGI announces the completion of an innovative project to deliver basic health care to 55,000 people who otherwise lack access to medicine and treatment. In Peru, CGSGI announces the commencement of a social and economic development project: a four-year effort to restore vision and productivity among Peruvians through the delivery of 50,000 cataract surgeries.

From Chelsea:For the dads in your life

Dear Amy

Throughout my life, my father, Bill Clinton, has been the busiest man I know. Even now, he's constantly on the go — finding new ways for his Foundation to make a difference in the fights against climate change, HIV/AIDS, childhood obesity, and other causes that motivate his hard work. But, no matter how busy he gets, my dad always has time to be my dad — to talk about our lives, to laugh together at a funny movie and, yes, to offer advice when I need it. On this Father's Day, he has a special message for other dads who, like him, have made fatherhood the number one priority in their lives. Please take a minute to read his note and check out the beautiful e-cards his Foundation has created for this occasion. Then, if you want, please send one to the father or fathers in your life.
