This morning, Hillary Clinton sent an email to supporters with the subject line, "Announcement." But the contents of the message did not explain the former secretary of state's future political ambitions. Instead, the message asked for money from supporters of what is now the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
"This is a season to give thanks for our many blessings and to remember our responsibilities to each other – that we're all in this together," Clinton wrote. "In my family, we're celebrating our first holidays with a beautiful new granddaughter. We're also celebrating the generosity and commitment of our incredible Clinton Foundation family – and that means you."
As we look ahead to an exciting new year, there's so much more to do together – solving problems and seizing opportunities faster, better, and at lower cost. But we can't do it without you. That's why Bill, Chelsea, and I will triple every $1 donated to the Clinton Foundation before the end of the year, up to an additional $100,000.
Support the life-changing work of the Clinton Foundation with a tax-deductible gift now, and we will personally match your donation $2 to $1, up to $200,000.
From ensuring more of America’s children have the chance to succeed to empowering women and girls around the world, we have plenty of work ahead of us in 2015.
I am so excited to move these initiatives forward. Our Too Small to Fail initiative aims to help parents and businesses take meaningful actions to improve the health and well-being of children. No Ceilings has begun to take on what I believe is the great unfinished business of the 21st century – helping women and girls achieve full participation around the world. And through Job One, we're bringing employers, educators, and young people together to help our kids get the skills and support they need to find good and fulfilling jobs.
Across all our initiatives in 2015, we'll be helping more people in more places live up to their God-given potential. And we need you right there with us.
I hope I can count on you to make a tax-deductible donation before midnight tomorrow. When you do, Bill, Chelsea, and I will personally match it, $2 to $1.
Thank you, as always, for joining us in this important work. With your support, I know that there are no limits to what we can achieve together.
Hillary Rodham Clinton
