It’s official: Founding Executive Director Karen Gordon is this month’s Glamour Magazine “Hero of the Month.” She can be found on page 54 of the May 2008 issue.

It’s a brief but informative portrait of Karen and her efforts, and we hope it helps attract some of the resources we need to carry on our work in Nicaragua, El Salvador, and other countries.

Our favorite quotation: “These days, the kids … even appear taller and stronger. ‘It’s not the diet that changed,’ says Gordon. ‘It’s the environment.'”

Welcome, Glamour readers.
