Wellington, FL – February 1, 2013 – The Chronicle Connection February Issue was released yesterday, with blue and purple hues catching the attention of readers across the world. Featured on the front cover of the well-known magazine, was JustWorld International. It was an honor for the non-profit organization to receive this acknowledgement, especially from such a prestigious and established publication.
“We are so grateful to be the February feature,” Executive Director of JustWorld International Jessica Newman beamed. “It has been an amazing 10 years, and to see it commemorated in The Chronicle Connection is a true honor. Erin wrote a beautiful article, and I hope that her words reach out to help our mission of creating a just world.”
“It’s not just about the blue coats and the logo. It’s more than that,” says Jessica Newman, the founder of charitable organization JustWorld International and the subject of this month’s cover story. “Becoming aware of poverty, and of all the people who don’t have even a sliver of the opportunities that I had-it was life-changing.”
In this month’s issue, writer Erin Gilmore tells the story of why a talented young woman born into privilege gave up a burgeoning show jumping career to devote her life to helping the less fortunate-and the millions of dollars she and her fellow riders have raised for the cause in the 10 years since.
Plus, we’ll take you on a tour of the inaugural $100,000 Trump Invitational Grand Prix on the sumptuous Mar-A-Lago Estate in Palm Beach, Fla., and help you curate your equestrian fashion from saddle to street.
