CFL3 Foundation Director, Cara Familet, joined other RH donors who stopped by Robin Hood Foundation headquarters this fall to hear board member, Jackie Bezos speak with the First Lady of the City of New York Chirlane McCray (pictured above, on September 28, 2017). The two discussed a recent partnership effort to dramatically expand early childhood education resources for parents and caregivers of young children.
The initiative, entitled "The Fund for Early Learning" addresses how the first three years of a child’s life can impact his or her economic destiny. Jackie, who is a philanthropist and mother of Amazon Founder, Jeff Bezos, reviewed practical ways that one can incorporate brain-building tools into any child's daily routine. She thanked The Bezos Family Foundation's other partners - the Overdeck Family Foundation, Touradji Family Foundation, Einhorn Family Charitable Trust, and the Heising-Simons Foundation - for their inspiring leadership on this initiative.
