Holiday greetings,

Thank you so very much for supporting TYO's education programs in the West Bank. In the past month, your giving has been truly amazing! In fact, we are just $664 away from our annual target and with your help we will certainly reach it before December 31.

Stumped on what to buy that last friend or family member? Here are two ways to avoid the holiday rush and get our project closer to its goal:

Donate to $25 or more to our project and receive limited edition POSTCARDS featuring the photos from our young Palestinian photographers in Nablus. You can also receive a set of NOTE CARDS with watercolor scenes of Jerusalem for a $50 donation to our Women's Entrepreneurship program in Lebanon.

Or give a gift that keeps on giving this year: donate in honor of friends, loved ones, colleagues and send a custom GlobalGiving/TYO tribute card by email or post. Its the third giving option on our project page.

It has been a busy month in Nablus as well. The fall 2011 semester has come to a close most successfully! With your support, children particpated in Drama, Music, Sport, and Art classes taught by our fantastic interns James, Andrew, Abi, and Aimee at the TYO Center.

Have you seen the TYO blog lately? Don't forget to check out some of the highlights from this semester:

  • Its a bird, its a plane....its a TYO Intern!! A day in the life of a TYO intern in comic book style.
  • TYO Color Games!
  • Classes took a field trip to the Qalquilya zoo. Don't miss the VIDEO BLOG!

Thank you again for your continued support of TYO. Every single dollar is greatly appreciated and makes a difference in the lives of the communities we work with.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2012!

--The entire TYO Team in Nablus, Beirut, and DC
