We did it!

Dear <<First Name>>,
 
We wanted to extend a special thank you for following YP-CDN's first peer-to-peer campaign efforts over the last couple of months. Thanks to a global team effort and your support, it was a resounding success!
 
We were able to reach--and even exceed--our fundraising goal with the help of 28 fundraisers and more than 128 supporters from across the globe! All money raised will support the launch of YP-CDN's 2016 NextGen Leaders Program in Kenya this Spring. Keep up with us over Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and through our newsletters to find out more soon!

We are excited to engage with you more over the course of 2016, as we continue to #MultiplyChange and inject some much-needed grassroots energy into the non-communicable disease movement! Thank you for your continued support!
