*Our Story*

Hi Grant,

The Web was created as a force for good — and every day, Mozilla is making
sure it stays that way by building choice, innovation and opportunity into
everything we do. For us, the Web should be a place to build your dreams.

Millions of people know Mozilla Firefox. But our commitment to building a
better Web goes far beyond that — we're a non-profit, building the future
of the Web with communities all around the world.

I know that you share our vision, and today I want to tell you about three
amazing projects:

First, check out our new video, *The Mozilla Story*. From the beginning,
Mozilla was different — dedicated to making the Web a safe, open and
accessible tool for communication, collaboration and community. This video
tells the story of how Mozilla helped shape the Web we know today — and how
we're going beyond Firefox to do even

The future of the Web and the future of learning are deeply intertwined,
and Mozilla is at the leading edge of combining both to fuel creativity and
innovation. Our new book, Learning, Freedom and the
was born out of the 2010 Mozilla Festival — it's the beginning of a
conversation that we hope you'll join. To thank you for being a part of the
Mozilla community, we've made it available to read online or as a free
download — you can do either

And finally, Mozilla recently teamed up with the National Science
Foundation to launch a one-of-a-kind innovation challenge to dream, design
and build the Web of the future. Through our Mozilla Ignite Apps
launching in January, we are inviting the world to design and build the
cutting-edge Web apps of the future — and giving them access to a screaming
fast, smart network (and funding) to do so. Click here to learn more about
Mozilla Ignite.<https://donate.mozilla.org/page/m/29b5e2d7/6a8813c0/177e0074/5c89fe9a/1136682575/VEsB/>

I'm really excited about where Mozilla is going. We're creating new
technologies and services to make the Web better. And we're working to
build a generation of Web makers by collaborating with other like-minded
people to create awesome things on the Web.

As we approach the new year, we'll need your continued support — more than
ever — to continue to shape the Web we all love.

*Thank you.*
