As the end of the year draws near, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for an amazing 2020. Positive Planet launched in the United States in July with only one volunteer, in the middle of a pandemic. Now in December, we have over 60 persevering and energetic volunteers working to alleviate poverty and foster entrepreneurship. Despite living in challenging times, we are well on our way to making a monumental difference for those in need.
In 2021, we will continue our campaign to break the chains of poverty through promoting entrepreneurship initiatives. Our 2021 goal is to serve 10,000 future entrepreneurs and job seekers in marginalized communities in the United States and beyond; providing guidance and tools such as financial education, vocational training, access to financing, and monetary support. I am confident that we will create a more Positive Planet together.
I would like to end by personally thanking everyone who helped build a positive economy with us. Thank you for your compassion, dedication, and support for the betterment of others.
On behalf of the Positive Planet team we wish you and your family a positive holiday season and a happy new year.
Ingrid Gonzalez – Positive Planet US President and Chairwoman
