Today is the official kick off of Christel House Week on the RCI® blog – my favorite week of content each year!
For those of you who don’t know, Christel House is an amazing non-profit organization started by RCI’s co-founder, Christel DeHaan. Through this wonderful charity, Christel House provides thousands of some of the world’s poorest children with an education and a chance to transform their lives for the better.
This week, to help bring Christel House to life, we will be featuring several videos from Christel House India in place of blog posts. In these videos - the first of which will be posted later today - you’ll meet one of the Christel House students as well as school staff. We encourage you to watch each video to learn more. And if you are moved to do so, you can donate to the organization here http://christelhouse.org/donate/rci.html. RCI will match all donations made by RCI subscribing members through Dec. 31, 2013 up to $25,000.
When Christel DeHaan founded RCI almost 40 years ago, she established a culture of giving back to the communities in which we do business. Today, we are proud to continue that tradition through the non-profit she created, and in the name of the thousands of Christel House children who represent the future for us all. Thank you for your support and RCI membership.
