As I celebrate my 73rd revolution around the sun (December 10) I am immensely grateful, not only to still be alive, but because the Josephson Institute and its CHARACTER COUNTS! program have emerged from our most challenging year ever poised to reach new levels of impact on the character of our kids and the ethical quality of the country. There is no doubt that there is so much to do but there is also no doubt that we are making a difference with the millions of families we reach through our educational programs. We also expect our current project for the Department of Justice to create a practical template to improve policing organizations (more on that later).
I sincerely ask you to consider make a tax-deductible donation to help me improve current programs and develop new ones to encourage and assist individuals and organization to put a higher priority on honesty and integrity, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and good citizenship.
I hope you noticed and like the new look of this blog. It’s just the beginning. My personal strategy for 2016 is to communicate more consistently and effectively by making greater use of this blog, our Facebook pages and enhanced visibility on Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and other social media. I will also be making greater use of video messaging directly in the blog and Facebook and also on our CHARACTER COUNTS! website and You Tube Channels.
If you find what I have to say helpful, please tell your friends. And, please, please, please give me your feedback both about the content of our communications and ways we can better serve this universe.
