Making the Difference
                           On October 11, 2010, we kick off our annual employee Combined
                           Charities Campaign. Everyone in HISD—employees, students,
                           families—has always been quick to respond to people’s needs in
                           Houston and throughout the world, and our employees have demon-
                           strated similar concern and generosity in the annual campaign that
                           raises funds for the 600 nonprofit organizations that are part of the

                             The services these organizations provide to families in Houston and
elsewhere are especially important in these times of economic stress and devastating natural
disasters. But these services also focus on such important issues as education, the environment,
health concerns, and social justice.

People become educators because they want to contribute to the betterment of their city, their
state, their nation, and their world. This is also what motivates people to contribute to the
Combined Charities Campaign. You support for this vital effort will help the participating
organizations touch the lives of countless people in Houston and around the globe. The online
payroll-deduction pledge system makes it easier and more private to give this year than ever
before. Your Combined Charities Campaign coordinator will distribute campaign brochures
and demonstrate the features of the online system.

Thank you for helping Team HISD make Houston a better place to live and to learn, and thank
you for helping the Combined Charities Campaign assist people in need whoever and wherever
they may be.
