They want to touch your lives: go to the nearest shelter

""Chaired by former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, PNB is a nonpartisan, nonprofit collaboration among the U.S. Department of State, the Coca-Cola Company, the Aspen Institute, and 13 other leading American businesses and nongovernmental organizations. The partnership aims to strengthen opportunities in Muslim countries, touching as many as 500,000 lives over the next five years, Albright said in an interview with Politico."  "This is a fabulous initiative. Secretary Albright called it ‘the arms and legs of the president’s Cairo speech,’ and I’m just really proud to be a part of it,” said Eboo Patel, founder and president of the Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC), and a member of PNB’s steering committee.""   (thanks Redouane)
