A Season to Celebrate Giving

Laura's Letter

Dear Friends,

As we embrace the season of giving and express our gratitude, we reflect on the incredible impact your generosity has had on our programs in the global community. In this year-end magazine, we are proud to showcase the successes that, together, we have achieved. From the stories of transformed lives to the tangible improvements in BBF’s healthcare, infrastructure, disaster response, and education programs, your contributions are woven into the fabric of these accomplishments. We invite you to take a moment to celebrate these positive changes with us.

Thanks to your contributions, BBF has been able to support hospitals and physicians in more than 30 countries. We have initiated projects that harness renewable energy sources to power healthcare facilities and schools in areas lacking reliable electricity. Your generosity has been instrumental in our rapid response to disasters from natural calamities like the earthquakes in Turkey, Syria, Morocco and Haiti to public health emergencies like the train derailment in East Palestine Ohio. In our Education Program, BBF provided school supplies, textbooks, and technology to enhance education opportunities in Pittsburgh and globally in seven countries.

Your support has brightened the lives of those in underserved regions and contributed to a more sustainable and resilient future. Again, thank you for being a vital part of our journey towards a healthier, more educated, and resilient world.

Wishing you a joyous holiday season and a bright and prosperous New Year.


Laura Kelly, BBF Vice President of Communications and Development
