Former President Barack Obama just made a major announcement about the launch of his charitable organization, the Obama Foundation.
The couple will be doing amazing things this fall as they get ready to hold the Obama Foundation Summit, inviting hundreds of leaders from around the world for a “hands-on exchange of ideas” before sending them back home, empowered and inspired, to begin working to organize and develop their own communities.

During the unveiling of plans for his presidential library a few months ago, Obama announced that he and his wife Michelle will be personally donating $2 million to summer jobs programs in Chicago so “young people can get to work.”
From his days a community organizer in Chicago to the Presidency of the United States, Barack Obama has shown an undeniable drive and talent for bringing people together and finding creative solutions to the many problems facing our communities.
