Building bridges and breaking barriers
Boston-area philanthropist Omar Khudari had a dream of giving US troops the ability to communicate directly and easily with civilians and soldiers in Afghanistan, promoting understanding, compassion and good will. Through a donor-advised fund at The Boston Foundation, and in collaboration with Simon & Schuster, the USO and Playaway, Operation Speak Easy was created to make this dream a reality.
