The picture above comes with a remarkable story we can't wait to share.
This October, We Stories was selected (out of 20,000 nominations) to attend South by South Lawn, a first of its kind festival of innovative ideas hosted by the White House.
We brought with us a copy of President Obama's children's book, "Of Thee I Sing," that had been signed by St. Louis school children and We Stories families and supporters.
It included a note about the community YOU are helping to build - book by book, conversation by conversation, family by family - a community fueled by families and committed to racial equity.
We were thrilled to bring YOUR hopes to the White House.
Last week as President Obama prepared to leave office, we received this note from the administration's Chief Digital Officer, Jason Goldman (a St. Louisan!):
"On the day of SxSL I did present the President with your book. He was very touched at receiving such a thoughtful gift.
Today I received your book back and it has been signed by the President. It is his hope that you and the kids would enjoy having it."
