A Wider Circle Founder Mark Bergel Named a 2014 CNN Hero!

A Wider Circle founder Mark Bergel has been named a 2014 CNN Hero! We at America’s Charities are a little biased – as one of our member charities, we already know how amazing Mark and his entire team at A Wider Circle are.  But, to wake up this morning and hear such great, well-deserved news about one of our members – we couldn’t be happier.  More than 10,000 individuals from around the world were nominated for this honor in the past year, so for A Wider Circle’s work to be honored in this way is absolutely incredible.  

CNN has a great article about A Wider Circle’s work, which you can read here.  Also, CNN will be airing a piece about Mark and A Wider Circle several times over the next few days on various CNN networks. Below is a list of air times, so be sure to watch!
