I first met the principals of Operation of Hope on a special "Face-to-Face" business trip through British Airways. As I learned more about the OOH organization and the tremendously great cause they support in many countries, how they changes the lives of so many children and their respective friends and families, I wanted to know more...and to be of help so that they may spread the word to even more people around the world.

I invited Jennifer Trubenbach to be one of my featured guests on my radio show. She is a delightful and intelligent lady and doing so much to further the cause that her father started so many years ago. That show was one of the highest ranking featured interviews. The responses came in from so many around the world who wanted to learn more, and to learn what they could do to be of help, too!

If you take pride and pleasure helping those who are need and those who are in service to help others, this is a great way to give back and to "add another log to the woodpile." I urge you to consider if just this once, to support this organization by becoming a supporter, a donor, a friend, and an advocate to help Jennifer, her family, and the entire OOH organization to continue to expand and serve so many in so many countries of great need.

Few organizations can do so much for so little...the impact they make with just one child expands outward and reaches into the lives of so many others. They need your support to sustain the progress and momentum - into the under developed and developing nations- where so many children are in dire need of medical, life enhancing assistance.

Please consider getting involved and making a difference. You may make all the difference in the life of one child...and wouldn't that be a great legacy to create and leave for the next generation...

Thank you.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand their reach for those who are served and those who provide services. Time, resources and leverage are what's needed.
