Dear Friends,

 “It was like a light coming on here.  We got connected to the world and that makes us feel hope. Everyone in the village is always asking when the next walkers are coming.”

This comment from a villager about the Abraham Path sums up for me what the Path is all about: connection and understanding, prosperity and hope.

As I reflect on the past year of on-the-ground progress on the Abraham Path, as well as the often tragic news still coming from the Middle East, I find myself wondering – how has such an audacious project become so real and so resilient?

The most important reason is YOU. Donors, walkers, and friends like you provide the support we need to weather an unpredictable political climate and create lasting, sustainable impact.

The Abraham Path is an innovative platform for good, a project that creates connection and economic opportunity for people and communities in the region while empowering them to share their stories with the world. The Path is a concrete, local project that anyone can participate in – as a donor, a walker, a partner, and a friend.

I am grateful that earlier this year National Geographic Traveler magazine named the Abraham Path as the best new walking trail in the world.

Today is #GivingTuesday. If you believe as I do in the power of human connection and economic opportunity to create a better world, then please join me in donating to the Abraham Path Initiative today!

If you make a donation by December 31st, I personally will be happy to match it, doubling your impact.

With much appreciation,

William Ury
